    In biology exam, my teacher always tells me to look for keywords in the paper that will help me to answer the question properly. For example if the question says something about:

    Osmosis - always relate to water potential
    Growth - think of protein synthesis or photosynthesis
    Rate of uptake - think of diffusion/facilitated diffusion/ active transport
    Move - think of Diffusion/f.diffusion/active transport
    Synapse - think of presynaptic neurone and post synaptic neurone.
    Temperature and Rate - think of kinetic energy and amount of movement
    Expression - think of polypeptide production

    Can anyone think of anymore that they have come across on past papers or on mark schemes?
