    Which topic are you guys going to start revising first? I can't decide whether to start with the first topic and make my way through the unit or start with Exchange and Transport, as this is looking like the biggest topic in my folder..

    I'm doing this exam too ( first time) is it much harder than unit 1? Is there much more content to learn?

    A lot harder than Unit 1

    Unit 1 is a lot more human than Unit 2; Unit 2 is a lot more 'animal / plant', e.g. exchange / transport, classification, biodiversity, relationships between organisms, variation, etc.

    Unit 4 is even less human, with all the ecology :rant:

    Unit 5 though :love:

    I also hate How Science Works questions Bloody shrews and pigs in Unit 4 xD

    Yes Unit 2 is quite big..even though it looks small in the textbook it goes into quite a bit of detail

    I also like Unit 5 ^^ Hoping to do a Neuroscience degree at uni so FINALLY we're doing something interesting that's about the human body and not plants and ecology Though thinking back I should have probably done a Human Biology course instead of general Biology if I prefered the human body - but general Biology is more useful Uni-wise.

    Unit 2 and Unit 4 are quite similar, revise Unit 2 well and you'll have covered some of the spec of Unit 4 too, I mean not respiration and photosynthesis as that's quite big in Unit 4..but things like Variation and Biodiversity

    Totally failed Unit 1 so I have to retake that, and do Unit 2.

    I'm not struggling with Unit 2 though, since I've been revising other topics before we've been taught them so I struggle a lot less than I did with Unit 1 >_>

    If anyone wants some notes, download this. It's helped me a lot.

    Afraid I'm leaving you all Teacher recommended I do Unit 1 again instead as it would be more beneficial with learning Unit 5.
    Hope you all have fun revising and good luck

    Hey there! I got an A, 88/100
    How did you do?

    -------------------------------

    How much have you all covered of Unit 2? (Besides those who have already done it and are retaking)
    Im worried my class is behind, we've only covered 2 booklets (DNA and Variety) since January since we've been doing ISA's and all that aswell.

    Oh my god, unit 2 makes me want to cry myself to sleep. Biodiversity Cohesion-tension theory I think my favourite topic is haemoglobin and the oxygen-dissociation curve. I think I'd enjoy the photosynthesis and respiration in unit 4, and unit 5 sounds sexy :ahee:
