Well to get the ball rolling... I am taking a science module exam soon for P2, C2 and B2. Is anyone else? Tips for revision / not completely and utterly freaking out would be appreciated. Cheers :-)

I have an AS physics module in late May, just started revising for it.

GCSE science modules are OK. Are you doing AQA? Because that's what we did, and I went through the textbook, made notes, then practiced a couple of past papers for my revision in years 10/11. Making notes doesn't work for everyone though, as it can get a bit boring... spider diagrams?

I'm doing OCR 21st Century. I find power points work for me. then you can load them onto get revsing as well. :)

Yeah, that's what I did last year I think. Useful because then other people can use them too.

I have made posters for my bedroom wall, may sound sad but it's really helped. Also CGP revision guides and work books are good.

I agree. I am not very good at just reading through guides sometimes because I have attention span problems. I just get bored. But if you're gonna read guides it might be a good idea to read them before you go to bed because you will retain more inofrmation. Same as if you wanna learn a song, listen to it before you go to bed because you'll remeber it better. :)

science modules arent too bad... when i did mine... i read through the revision guides.. and made notes... the GCP revision guides are good as they have questions to do at the end of each topic! :)

Yeah the CGP ones are great. love 'em. what exams are everyone else doing?

I'm Doing AQA, Each seperate.

I'm only year 10, so I've done core science so far, but I'm resitting 4/6 :(

I've got a textbook that has just what you need to know, and no blabble, because it calms me down about how much i need to know :)

Is it the Letts ones? I have those and the same thing - only stuff you need to know, they are great for science and although they havn't got all the jokes that CGP do they are nicely presented. I also have the question books that go with them (although they do have practise questions in the main study guides) because it's the calculations i really struggle with, especially for chemisty. I'd really recommend them, although, because they try to condense everything down to the bare minimum I sometimes have to refer to my class notes as well if there is a topic I don't understand, plus they don't cover the "how science works/ethical" stuff.

Most of the time i just read through my text book but I look at a page (or two), then test myself over and over again until i can summarise the whole page in my head.

would you guys say that workbooks help? cos sometimes I can't understand a topic until i put it into context. I've got a six hour tech exam coming up! :( its split over two days though. stressy! and about three zillion science modules and those spanish asset tests. is anyone else doing the asset tests?

They definitely help a bit, but I wouldn't say they are worth it for all subjects. For some exams past papers is more useful but i'd say for maths, and IMO chemistry because there are quite a few calculations, maybe history as well (like for the sources) they are really good. Good Luck for all your exams Izzie, I've got a long weekend now but a few more next week, one the week after.

who had a b2,c2,p2 exam today??

Posted: 17-01-11 18:36 by Malik.M

I did B2,C2 and P2 however my examining board was edexcel, however they went alright. For anyone doing the triple science bit of the edexcel course I will warn you now the exams are harder than you think!
