I did my GCSEs in 2019 😅 (and I didn’t like this paper because AQA suck). I’ve simply made a bunch of exam threads.

I did do AQA, this exact paper but I’m not doing my GCSEs this year, I already did my GCSEs in 2019.
Heyyyy I’m trying to aim for a 9-9 or a 9-8 in science but the issue is I struggle with paper 1 topics especially for biology. The paper 2 topics are so much easier in my opinion. In my mock (we only did paper 2) I ended up getting a 7-6 (not the best I know) but it was better that the grades I got in December when I was doing triple I got ( U, U, 4) so yeah I just need help with paper 1 and I think il be good to go. I just don’t know how I will cover it before the exams.
hiya! I aim in science to get a 6-7 because I got that in mocks and I feel I can hopefully get that in the exams! my teacher for biology recommended revising the osmosis practical as that hasn't come up in a while aswell as the food tests as she said those might be possible 6 markers (I do aqa)! Good luck everyone :smile:

Personality I found paper 1 easier I'm also aiming for 9-9 or 9-8 but my predictions is only 8-8 for paper 1 learn all the require practical, learn amount the plant stuff, make sure u know small stuff like importance of Bile in digestion and stuff l, those are the one people forget to study. Do lot of past parper they would help u so much I used to get grade 5 or 6 when I started doing it now I'm getting 8 or 9, do as much as possible.
Guys learn ur food test and the digestive system, don't leave out small easy topic, in exam they can. Strip you up

Step 1:Believe in yourself
Step 2: Write down topics, hardest - easiest
Step 3: Cold shower
Step 4: Watch summary video for hardest topic.
Get practice paper for that topic and answer
questions in your head and check with mark
scheme. If it's wrong write down the question and
answer. When questions repeat you should learn
the questions you didn't know. Rinse and repeat
