    hi there! did you just use these notes in you revision then? did you keep rewriting them? the thing is i think they really helped me in unit 2 AS bio that's how i got my A (: thankyou ..and then i used them for F214 but didnt get an A ): how did you revise to get your A's? right now it seems so impossible for me ):
    I'll explain to you my revision strategy, because I think it will make more sense in context.

    Most of my revision was done by going through the textbook and my notes and drawing pictures etc., to try to get it in my head. And then a day or two before the exam I would write the notes that I've shared above. I would also draw pictures to supplement them, but I couldn't get a scanner to add the pictures to the files. Writing them was how I crammed and how I kept calm before exams.
    If I was in your position, using these notes would not help me with my A levels because reading other people's notes is not how I can revise effectively, my brain just doesn't work that way! You just need to find the right way to revise for you.

    Thanks for these they're great. Going to be using the F215 ones along with past papers and booklets my teacher makes for each module.

    Thankyou! but i must say they're still great because they're nice and condensed, and easy to read from rather than the whole detailed textbook..grateful ! dont know what i would do without them :/ lol thankyouuuuuuuuuuu eternally grateful (:

    Hey, I did some revision notes for the exams F211, F212, F214 and F215 and thought I'd share them around, so here you go :-)
    You have produced some really good quality revision notes, i have used your notes for f214 and f215 only as a guide and have started to produce my own revision notes with a glossary of key biological terms that could help me get the higher marks.

    They're not revision notes you've done, haha. Our teacher gave us the EXACT same copy of this so yeah, you've obviously got it from another source.

    I wrote them myself. They have my initials at the bottom. But it's not worth arguing with you about them.

    Thank you sooooo much for these, enabled me to finish my written notes (I have to hand write it to remember it) on all the boring stuff on plants that could have taken me days otherwise!

    One, the likelihood of your teacher being lazy is high, 2 why couldn't your teacher have just taken them from here, 3 even if they weren't hers, who cares, at least she posted them!

    what just because a teacher gives it to you it means she is lying. Grow up your teachers most likely got it from here as well.

    Teachers for the most part are lousy, that's why they are teachers and not some high-flyer.
    Seriously.
    Schools plagiarize when they have no skills in making good notes and just copy and paste everything from the text book.
