    I've been revising Biology all week as the exam's on Tuesday. I think I understand most of it now which is good. I redid the mock we did last night and got 53/60, but because we went through the answers I already knew some. But it's remembering the facts, right? :L

    And today a little later on I might start some Chemistry. That'll probably require more revision than Biology. And then Physics. Aaaah, hate it.

    I'm excited for when these exams are over. They stress me out. :rolleyes:

    I've hated Biology since as long as I can remember. So I've been spending a lot of time on Biology revision as that's definitely going to be my weakest area out of all of the sciences.

    I think Chemistry is easier than Biology but I remember when I mentioned that I got a lot of dirty looks off people in my class as they seemed to prefer Biology.

    Yeah, gonna be nice when they're over.

    I'm sure you can get an A* this time

    I've not really revised much today. I did two Chemistry past papers on the old specification and did ok, but in the new one I'd have probably done bad. :L

    For Biology I feel fine about it, but for Chemistry the stuff seems way more complicated to learn and remember, and for Physics I'm not too sure...

    I suppose I could go revise some stuff now before I go to bed, I just hate how I have so much other homework in other subjects to do when I have exams coming up. They should calm down at this time!

    I wanted to ask if you had any tips for those longer, 6 mark questions where you have to evaluate? Do you give 2 advantages and 2 disadvantages for each and then at the end give a conclusion into the final idea with why (plus a small counter-argument e.g. whilst it's this... in general, this is the better choice because...)?

    Assuming you get a question asking for advantages and disadvantages of a certain method/product/chemical/etc. but yeah, basically just make 6 points and don't make any SPaG mistakes, as Dalek would say. I'll bet he LOVES the new specification's 6 markers :awesome:

    Ok, thanks for clarifying. And I don't mind SPaG and pick it out in myself, just not in others. We do not have a duty to correct others unless they ask.

    Lucky you - my school's planning on doing that soon. But it probably won't happen...

    Yes, it is. You'll be fine; good luck! I got a low A with no revision in the mock and re-did the mock a few days ago and got an A* after revising. Though in the actual exam I'll be very happy with a high A.
