Oh, I see!
Everyone has their own revision method that works best for them, so I'd advise you to try different methods and see which ones help you memorise content the best.

In my personal experience:
For sciences (all), I usually write summaries of notes on the specifications and textbooks, then review them every 2-3 weeks to retain and memorise all the information I've written myself by hand; I find this method useful as it's excellent for memorisation.
After a few weeks, I go through past papers and incorporate my retained information into my answers, checking to see if I'm missing any gaps.
If I do have any missing gaps, I like to go on YouTube and use resources like Primrose Kitten and FreeScienceLessons to fill in the extra notes.

If you're curious about my predicted grades so far for Y11 in the sciences...
Mock results:

Chemistry - 9

Physics - 8

Biology - 8 (nearly a 9)


Good luck, and I wish you the best! :biggrin:

wow seems you are really good at getting the best grades 👍
Btw, this year (year 9) the teacher told me that I’m officially doing double science and do foundation paper all the time in year 10. Will that decision be changed when I go to another school and when I do, can I still do higher paper exams even my awful teacher telling me I guaranteed won’t!

Apologise for the mistake, I must’ve read the reply wrong. :smile:
If you change schools, they may recommend to do foundation but that doesn’t mean you can’t attempt the higher papers. So I’m confident you are able to study for the higher as you’re still in y9 and have numerous amounts of time.

Sorry again. Have a wonderful day :smile:
