Revision Guides and Practice Material

Most pupils at some stage will use a revision guide to help them recap and revise content from the large amount that is covered during the 5 years they are studying science.  As with course text books, there are a huge variety available to cover the many different exam syllabi that are about.

 

The revision guides below are the ones that we have used in school for a number of years, with many pupils finding them aid their success.  There are also a range of work books which complement the revision guides, giving pupils examples and additional experience at exam style questions.  The details for each book are listed next to the image, while clicking on the image will open the Amazon website on the relevant page.

It is worth noting that each of the revision guides is available from the school, at a less than RRP.  If you’re not sure which guide / guides are suitable for the course you’re studying, please speak with your science teacher.

GCSE Combined Science: Trilogy

The following guides and work books are for the combined science: Trilogy course.  Each book covers all content for each of the three disciplines, but does not have the content needed for the separate science syllabus; so pupils taking or intending to take this route will find them lacking.

Key Stage 3 Science

The two revision guides below are intended for pupils studying science at key stage 3 (Years 07 and 08).  As with the GCSE materials there are versions for both higher and foundation tier pupils, although the distinction isn't as easily made at KS3.

 

Ideally, all pupils should be aiming to be familiar with the content in the higher revision guide, as this will provide the best grounding for the journey into GCSE.  It is, however appreciated that this might be a daunting ask for some students, as such, please speak with your science teacher to determine which would be best for you.
