i used the CGP revising for all my Science GCSE's, and honestly they really help me. It's different for everyone but just keep doing different ways of revision, and see which is best for you. The tips i can give are that you can keep writing your notes over and over again, and keep making them smaller and smaller, you definately dont't want pages of nonsense, keep them short and to the point. Mine started out on A4 pages, then i shortened them and kept my notes on post-it notes.

You could even start drawing things that you could associate with whatever your revising. Or make songs up (you can find some on youtube if like) =]. Read your notes as much as you can. Only revise in bitesize chunks, dont revise constantly all day for more than half an hour, otherwise your brain will switch off, so revise half an hour, take a 5 - 10 minute break, and start revising again. Amother good way to revise, is to make your own powerpoints, from your own notes, or even make posters.

As for revision websites,i suggest you try these:-

http://www.s-cool.co.uk/

http://www.bbc.co.uk/schools/gcsebitesize/science/

http://gcserevision101.wordpress.com/biology/

you can also use this website, its good for notes and stuff.

If you've got any more questions, don't hesitate to ask. Hope ive helped. Good luck on your mock exam. im sure you'll do well.
