    Every time I make the mistake of not revising early enough. I really want to avoid all the stress for the summer, so this thread should hopefully be of some use!

    Same here haha.

    How are you guys revising?! The two genome units are crazy and the Ecosystems unit is so damn boring!

    Here's my tip - Go through the textbook page by page, highlighting key points with a highlighter. (Don't do this if you do not own the textbook - the school might be slightly pissed!)

    Its going good there’s just so much content to get through
    That’s great advice, my tip would be to just constantly write and rewrite notes.
    Its time consuming but works .

    Anyone done the sliding filament model yet? (Muscles)

    I have no idea how much is waffle and how much we need to know!

    Can someone summarise it for me?

    Oh yeah, and the spread before that on muscles. It's INCREDIBLY vague on how the structure of each muscle group varies between each type of muscle! (Cardiac, smooth and skeletal)

    Pretty sure I did this at A2
    You'll get maggots, set up a plate immitating different conditions (e.g. moist and dark/moist and light/dry and dark/dry and light) into quarterly sections, and you watch the behavior of the maggots
    Common sense- are the maggots really going to LOVE the dry and light quarter?
    Good luck tomorrow!

    Haha that's hilarious. There's no way in hell you can finish in time if you've been going that slowly. I would start teaching myself the course if I were you.
