Any good youtube channels for Bio + Chem a levels?

So recently i've been using AlleryChem for my chem notes and Freesciencelessons for my bio notes.

I really like AlleryChem cuz his videos are like 30 mins summary of all the important key points (he doesn't add unnecessary extra info nor does he leave any key points out).
But Freesciencelessons is a bit annoying, the biology playlists arent in order and its individual 2 min clips of every sub-topic. Not only that but i feel like Shaun waffles here and there.

I was wondering if ppl had other youtube channels to recommend which worked for them to understand topics (i'm a visual learner so channels like Miss Jercha did not work for me - since it's more audio than anything).

Also if anyone can lmk if Allerychem and freesciencelessons helped them achieve/get predicted A+, i'd be more than greatful.

I’m only in year 12 but machemguy is really good for chemistry and organicchemistrytutor in my opinion.

yesss im in yr 12 rn, i've procasinating the whole few months and just started making my notes on biological molecules. But it's taking WAY TOO LONG!

My chem notes took like 1 day but its been 2 weeks and i'm still not done nor do I understand anything freesciencelessons is saying. So upset dk wat channel to use, hopefully freesciencelessons covers every part of the spec or else these notes r a waste

Ahhh, I don’t make notes tbh , it doesn’t really help me learn but for other ppl it is really useful. What topicare you doing in chem rn, i might be able to suggest some videos?We’re doing biological molecules too right now but we do two topics at once i have a test on dna andmitosis stuff on Friday

I tried watching her videos but didn't find them useful during GCSEs so i probably wont find it useful rn yk?
Try miss estruch for bio - she's really good and has videos on all topics, not just individual 2 minute ones! she covers everything you need to know. For chem i use elliot rintoul and allery chem - i think elliot rintoul is the best though because he explains the concepts really well, especially for organic chem! I use their videos to make my flashcards and then i use practise questions to consolidate my knowledge.
