    I made this thread as I couldn't find a thread for the F211 paper being sat in May 2012.

    How is everyone getting on with revision?

    Glad that this thread was mad for those sitting this module in May

    I'm really nervous :afraid:. I haven't really revised for this module as I'm putting my effort in other subjects.

    Have you guys have any techniques, tips etc for this module?

    Hello guys!

    Im resitting this,F212 and then doing f214 as well.

    Gahhh.

    Apparently this is supposed to be the easiest exam (so my teacher says) as all you have to do is memorise and not really apply anything.


    Still think its super hard.
    Gah hate biology. Havent started revision for this but i will start tomorrow!

    Hows everyone else getting on?

    Anyone who needs help understanding the concepts of this unit feel free to PM me as a lot of this unit is the fundamentals of what you will study through all the other units.

    have you got any techniques, tips etc for this exam? I heard doing loads of past papers help.

    And have you got notes for this exam?

    My notes were all hand-written for this module and I gave them away to a friend who is resitting the exam.
    I would advice you to get to grips with the terminology examiners use. They try and confuse you on purpose to make you think you don't know the answer. Looking at past papers helps you learn patterns they generally use. Most of F211 content comes from the old spec Transport module (code: 2803/01) and the Foundation module (code: 2801). Looking at the mark schemes helps you pick out key words especially since QWC marks just require you using key words.

    Hi F211 people!
    At school we got given a revision disc with loads of past questions (from the previous specification) that are relevant to this course.

    I've uploaded them to Google Docs, and they should be viewable from the below link:

    https://docs.google.com/open?id=0By8...U5EN2RDcmtBU2s

    This includes questions for F211, F212, F214 and F215

    Please +ve rep if this has been helpful!
