    I heard from someone that jan biology exam was so hard concentrating on the unnecessary details, and apparently they changed the exam to be more focusing on the application rather than information...do you think this is true? And if so, do you think may exam will be like jan ones as well? Really worried now

    i think for jan exams they usually use them to fiddle around a little to see how different techniques come across.
    ( according to my teacher)
    I really hope they do not do the same thing for may.

    I did well in my f211 (85/90). I like the majority of this module, learning about biological molecules, health and diet etc. I just hate learning classification and biodiversity :/

    I would like to ask a question which would benefit all, if answered that is
    What exactly is the likely topics, looking at the past exams and the trend they follow, that will show up heavily on this paper? After all, The Jan 2012 Unit 1 paper was heavy on membranes and the first module of Unit 1.

    Also, what will be the best course of action to revise the topics? I tend to read the book, make notes in my own words (but use the key terminology) and then read the same topic form a book I was advised to read up with, "Collins Advanced Science Biology 3rd edition, (by Mike Boyle & Kath Senior)" then past papers for exam techniques. However, I don't think this is enough if they decide to experiment with their questions like they did this January, any advice would be much appreciated. Thank you very much and Good luck to you all, I know you can all do it

    I wanted to know this too
    What I do for revision is make notes and flashcards using the big textbooks and then read up on everything with my CGP revision guide. I haven't started any exam questions yet But I will sometime this week I think we should try to come up with exam style questions of our own. Awh, thanks...good luck to you too


    How did everyone find the practicals for Biology?
