    I'm in a bit of a weird situation regarding college. Due to mental health problems and personal circumstances, I've been out of my lessons since early October (and spent most of AS out of lessons too). I spend all day at college in the study and have no input from teachers. Because of this, I also don't have people in my classes that I talk to as I wasn't really in lessons much to meet people.

    I'm just wondering what people use to revise for the following and any advice they have or good notes they've found.

    All AQA:
    * LITB1
    * LITB3
    * PSYA1
    * PSYA2
    * PSYA3
    * PSYA4
    * BIOL1
    * BIOL2
    * BIOL4
    * BIOL5

    Thanks guys!

    Hello there. I'm sorry to hear about your situation. I would advise doing as many past papers as you can for biology.

    Flash cards are useful for some of the biological processes and cycles.
    If you don't have a textbook already, I would recommend this textbook for A2. I am using it at the moment and it's excellent.
    S-cool has brilliant biology notes.
    In general, youtube is your friend for videos and people have even compiled playlists for the sylabi but I'm a big fan of the Khan Academy channel for topic revision. It's American but biology is biology .
    And lastly, here are links for Bio1, Bio2, Bio4 and Bio5 packs.

    I hope you find the above useful .
