Preparing for your GCSE Science exams? Wondering what might be the best way to do that? 

I've got a great suggestiong for you. GIF study/revision notes. This is not only a great way of putting concepts into to visual context but also a fun way of creating a set of study notes.

Let's take the properties and trends of elements in Group 1 of the Periodic Table.


1. The elements contain one electron in their outer shell

This idea will create great visual images in your mind when a question on this topic arises in your exam. 

Hot tip: It is best to create your own revision notes as they are personal to your learning and understanding.
