    Hi guys,
    Can you please tell how you revise for a level biology. I just can't seem to get my head around it. I really want to get a grade B but unfortunately i am working at a D. Really need help!!!!!

    Sorry you've not had any responses about this. Are you sure you've posted in the right place? Here's a link to our subject forum which should help get you more responses if you post there.

    You can also find the Exam Thread list for A-levels here and GCSE here. :dumbells:

    Just quoting in Fox Corner so she can move the thread if needed

    You need to take it a topic at a time. Break down your WHOLE syllabus into sections. Take a section a day/few days/week and INDULGE YOURSELF IN IT.
    Write revision notes, mindmaps read the textbook, watch youtube videos about it. Try answering text book/past paper questions and learn from your mistakes.
    Then approach the next topic, etc, etc.
    Once you have understood and revised all your topics, make a list of things you find hard to remember/ understand.
    Can't understand? Talk to your teacher, ask people on TSR, watch more Youtube videos, google, revision guides....
    Can't remember? Take the fact and write it out AGAIN and AGAIN. Take key points/facts, write them as questions and answers on post-it notes and place these post-it notes all round your house. Eg, Q - 'What are the base pairs in DNA?' A - 'Cytosine/Guanine + Adenine/Thymine'. Place these post its on drawers, fridges, doors, windows, walls etc. If you go past one/need to open the door etc, then ask yourself the question and try to answer it. Get your parents to test you, use websites like Memrise where you can enter in information for it to test you on.

    Hope this helps!
