Try looking at your topic list/specification and highlighting your weakest topics. Then go on youtube - freesciencelessons and find the video on that topic (it may be more than one). Watch the video and make notes. Then go online and find some past paper questions or practice questions. Do these with the knowledge you've just learnt from the video, then correct it using the mark scheme. You'll quickly get the hang of what the mark scheme wants, and you'll see patterns emerge - most questions on the topic will have a similar mark scheme. Do this for every topic you are really unsure of. For topic you know better, you can just watch the video to refresh knowledge.
For equations, flashcards are best! Either write out physical ones, or get the app 'quizlet' and make them on there - it helps because you can have them on you at all times and practice everywhere when you have some extra time.

After you've done all the core revision - PMT has a lot of really good resources for GCSE (pre made notes, mind maps, flashcards, questions and answers) for each topic of your spec

Update: I’ve done my chemistry mock.
It was really hard.
And also I got my biology grade back. I got 23/70 😬. Which is a grade 4 (pass).
But I have one year to improve and aim for a 6 in science. Thanks for the advice. Because that will help me improve

I changed the names of my friends on snapchat and group chats to equations for chemistry and physics equations

people in my class got around the same when I did my mocks and ended up getting 7s in the real thing, so you can definitely do it!
the physicsandmathstutor website helped me jump like 3 grades

omgg tyy. That boosted my confidence.
So I’ve found loads of helpful websites AFTER I done all my science exams. I wish I knew them all before. But now for the summer holidays I’m going to revise and mainly focus on science, because that’s my weakest subject. I really want to pass the actual gcse, so I need to put a lot of effort in. I also need to stay very motivated. So thank you <3
