    Does anybody have any revision notes or sites to use to revise for B3, as I'm finding it literally impossible to find anything online which helps me revise.
    I prefer having text but having to answer questions as you go along.
    I'd usually use Sam Learning but they only have B3 revision for bio-technology and its very bland at that
    Thanks.

    Buy an edexcel revision guide, it has everything in it and questions too, and do lots of past papers.

    apparently the swan one was: to make sure they realise it is a member of the same species, and to make sure it was a suitable/healthy male of which they can pass their genes onto healthy offspring

    Proper reckon I failed that exam.
    It didn't seem much like B3 though, it seemed more like B2 but with a bit of common knowledge afterwards!

    i think i put something stupid like: they are monogamous; therefore they have to show off their best features in order to attract a fit female, so that when they mate, the offspring can obtain the best genes.
    i think the point i was trying to make was that they only have one partner, and if the partner didn't have good genes then the majority of offspring will also have these 'un-useful' genes. i don't know :/ just a good old guess
    I only liked the bio-technology questions

    Um grade boundaries will really depend on how well everyone did this year..I'm guessing around 50/60 for an A* (plus or minus a couple of marks). P3 was quite hard, C3 was ridiculously easy!
