Should I continue going over GCSE science flashcards during A-level?

Hi,

I'm gonna take maths, bio and chem A levels.

I've forgotten much of GCSE science, especially as we haven't been tested on certain topics for ages.

I don't have flashcards for every topic in GCSE bio and chem (including many hard topics).

I was wondering if I should continue to look through, and possibly fill out the remaining topics of, my GCSE bio/chem flashcards or just watch freesciencelessons for a small topic when I need to. Or, could I get away with just creating flashcards for bio and chem after every A level lesson and go over them when Anki says to?

Essentially, how crucial is a maintained, thorough understanding of GCSE science to A level science if I intend to create and go over flashcards for every A level lesson?

Thanks

Yes, revise the basics if you've forgotten them
However, A Level content is so different to GCSE content that it's just worth going over basic A Level content, maybe transition YouTube videos for those subjects.
I'm going into year 12 and I've written out the whole spec in my notebooks for each subject. I've started learning some AS Content to prepare myself so I won't be overwhelmed.

definitely gonna need to know a lot of the GCSE content, look at the spec to see where the overlap is. As long as you understand the basic concepts you'll be fine and the teachers will go over any old content before adding to it (but briefly!). Hope this helps xx
