Hi , what is the best way to make notes for biology and chemistry . As a lot of people recommend doing past papers and topics questions so I don’t want to spend a lot of time on making fancy good looking notes . I am aiming for A/A* . What method would be the best useful and quick .
Shall I do digital flashcards on quizlet answering all the questions from the specification .
Any other tips on how to get the top grades would be really helpful . Also if u do biology or chemistry how many hours do you spend on revising ?

Try using uplrearn for chemistry. you can get it fro free if you or someone you know with free school meals makes an account.
For both topics, try to understand everything and how each topic links with one another and don't get scared of memorising through past papers. check out Spaced repetition and active recall online. Get CGP revision guide instead of making notes. but sometimes writing the info down in a different format such as mind maps without looking in the book can help with understanding.

if you have a laptop i 1000% recommend taking ur notes on it. you can then copy and paste information into quizlet/anki which is so much faster than writing it out. or even start making ur flashcards in lesson if you have time. my biggest advice is lesson time is for understanding, dont worry about making ur notes all perfect, focus on making sure you 100% understand the content. then in ur study period fix/complete your notes and start doing questions.
