The BBC classic is still going strong and they’ve recently updated to provide notes for the new exams. The website covers pretty much everything with guides and resources on the AQA, OCR and Edexel exams in Core Science, Additional Science and Triple Science.

This website provides brilliantly detailed notes and exercises for GCSE (and while we’re at it, A-Level) students. The notes are split into Biology, Physics and Chemistry sections and cover most of the content across the various exam board offerings.

A premium paid website that offers videos, notes, resources, practice questions and even revision timetables for GCSE science students.
