Each organizer is designed as a two-side of A4 summary with headings: Sub-Topics, Page No (in the textbook), Key Teachings and Key Words. I'm finding the sheer amount of teachings and key words far exceeds that of the old GCSE and is key to repeated revision and being successful in the five and twelve mark questions.
