If you want to ace your GCSE science exams, you need to start reviewing as soon as possible. To help you get the grades you can be proud of, we've put together some tips and techniques for a successful scientific review. The best way to review is to use a variety of methods. Flashcards, mind maps, and fragmentation are all great tools for memorizing facts and concepts.
Writing your own questions and practicing previous documents can also help you understand the material better. Additionally, teaching someone else can help you solidify your knowledge. It's also important to review in different places. Reviewing can be boring, so try studying in interesting places like the park or beach.
This will help keep things fresh and interesting. Karen Collins, Principal Scientific Associate at PixL, talks to Tassomai about the structure of science GCSEs and how parents can better prepare themselves and their children for scientific assessments. Children's clinical psychotherapist, Madeleine Inkin, writes about the neurological changes young people go through during the GCSE years and how parents can manage their own expectations. Andy talks to Tassomai about how GCSE English subjects are structured and what parents need to know.
Matt Green, The Rapping Science Teacher on tiktok and owner of JGM Science Tutors, talks to Tassomai about his foolproof method of starting the review (unfortunately, it's not rapping). Kathrine Mortimore shares her tips for GCSE English learners, the use of Tassomai for English, and her experience of her time as part of the ongoing Torquay-Tassomai collaboration. The expert science teacher and host of the How to Review Science masterclasses within The Extraordinaries Club advises using the placement technique for your science review. This technique involves dividing each subject (biology, chemistry and physics) into different topics that you will be assessed on and addressing them separately by learning the curriculum and practicing previous paper questions. Keerti Purmessur, an expert science tutor who trained to teach in the TeachFirst program and studied Natural Science in Cambridge, has prepared a series of How to Review Science masterclasses for club members. Karen Collins is a contributor to Tassomai's GCSE Survival Guide, a free 28-page manual full of practical tips and expert advice to help families navigate the GCSE. Before you start reviewing, it's a good idea to print out the physics, biology and chemistry syllabus of the exam board.
This will help you understand what topics you need to focus on when studying. Remember that passing your GCSE science exams requires hard work and dedication. But with these tips and techniques, you'll be able to ace your exams with flying colors!.
