Yeh i had my mock this week and it was quite hard and not. I did a mock on unit 1 edexcel chemistry and a lot of organic chemistry came up which was slightly hard. The best way i revise chemistry is to go over each part of the unit and make a spider diagram for it with lots of colour and pictures  and also don't forget mneumonics like PPP (purple potassium permanganate which reacts with sulphuric acid and a alkene = goes colourless )

Physics is slightly harder because its all about applying the different equations to a problem so for that I would make sure that i know all the equations inside out and then look at exam style questions as they will be very hard and will test your knowledge.

I am planning to make a revision note for chemistry unit 1 about all the things you need to know for each topic (EDEXCEL)

anyway hope you do very well in your mocks and actual tests

I try and condense the units by making packs of revision cards. Because there is so much science to revise I make short notes (sometimes with diagrams/pictures if you are a visual learner). Past papers are really good and you can get them off most of the exam board websites, they help you to see what you already know and stuff that you need to learn and concentrate on (be sure to note down these areas). Also, if doing a past paper make sure to time yourself so that you know how it will be in the real exam. You can also record yourself saying notes of a particular unit and listen back to it if you are an auditory learner, and try making card sorts of revision notes if you are kinaesthetic!
Hope your exam goes well!

Good luck :D

Hi :D

Try doing some exam questions especially the ones that use the formulas and equations that you need to learn cos then you'll be more likely to learn them.

You could also read a revision guide as many times as you can :D

Hope this helped :D

Good luck ^_^
