Hey so I started revising gcse’s now and for the majority of year 9 (i’m still in year 9) i’ve been using the revision checklist to make my notes, but i’m wondering if i should keep using these or switch to the spec?

I'm in Year 9 too. Because it's the last year of KS3, I decided not to get KS3 textbooks, and instead find out the Exam boards my school uses for certain subjects (e.g AQA, Edexcel). I'm assuming the specs/textbooks for GCSE would also cover content from KS3 so I guess they would act as KS3 & KS4 textbooks? I had my science tests for Year 9 some time ago but I didn't use my revision checklist much that my teachers gave me as I preferred using Seneca and my notes from my textbooks.

I think after your Year 9 exams, you should then switch to the GCSE specs for the exam boards. For me, it was easy most of the time to ask my teachers about the exam board the subject department uses.

Don't know what else to say but yeah I guess use your notes or whatever you find useful in your revision

I don’t think you understand that in Year 9 you are covering GCSE topics that will come up in your actual GCSE’s

teach yourself maths and maths only. Only go through what you have learnt so far in English and sciences (please be aware that there are some topics in year sciences that don't come up in GCSE sciences. For example, superposition doesn't come up in GCSE Physics. However isotopes come up in chemistry and physics. Definitely revise atom models if you have learnt them) .
