Within Science A, schools can choose to follow route 1 or route 2. They cover the same topics, but they’re combined in different ways in the exam papers.

~ Route 1: three separate exams are taken in Biology, Chemistry and Physics together with the controlled assessment.

~ Route 2: two combined exams (all three subjects mixed up in the same paper) plus the controlled assessment.

      hi Chloe, Your course textbook (not revise guide) is the most important resource for you. Make sure you’ve read and understood all the key points and answered the sample questions. The workbooks are good – lots of questions with answers – and they also do specimen exam papers. BBC Bitesize is very useful – do the revision sections and tests. When you’re learning stuff, imagine that your job is to teach it to someone who doesn’t know about science. That gets you to really think about it, which is important especially for the longer questions. You could also have a bit of online tuition ;-). Good luck!
