    Right, I have my alternative to practical paper for Biology (Paper 6, I think) on Monday and I haven't revised a thing.

    What is a quick way to get it all done? I need something to get the job done quickly as I also have Chemistry and Physics (P1 and P2 each) to revise for.

    Look for past papers and mark schemes and go through them!

    And then? I've never done a full past paper before. So, is there any form of revision I should be doing? Any specific chapters?

    Hahaha and do you have any advice to offer? The exam (Bio) is tomorrow and I should be revising Chemistry now!

    I would suggest getting a textbook for the subject, then gradually going through all the past papers. If you encounter a question you can't answer, refer to the textbook.
    You'll probably find this helps immensely since, usually, questions in exams seem to follow the same trend and you won't get much deviation from the norm
