I'm doing AQA AS Level Biology - exam is in a month and a half :ahhhhh:

I am currently revising the lungs and my teacher made us do this massive project about 10 or so different lung diseases (e.g COPD, asbestosis, miner's lung) and their risk factors/symptoms/treatment, but it's not in the text book and only covered briefly in the revision guide. The specification vaguely says as kind of a side note...

"Students should be able to:

-interpret information relating to the effects of lung disease on gas exchange and/or ventilation
-interpret data relating to the effects of pollution and smoking on the incidence of lung disease
-analyse and interpret data associated with specific risk factors and the incidence of lung disease
-evaluate the way in which experimental data led to statutory restrictions on the sources of risk factors
-recognise correlations and causal relationships."

so to anyone who has done the exam previously/ is revising now, do I need to know all these lung diseases in loads of detail or will it just be application questions?
sorry for the ramble, thank you for any help

I'm afraid yes u do need to know it in detail.In each exam paper their will be at least 1 question about those types of diseases.They will choose 1 disease and then say what affect does it have etc...Best bet is go through a paper or two and see what type of questions they give u on them.

Most of those diseases are similiar in explanation but with 1 or 2 differences.

On a side note,u have to do the heart diseases as well as the lungs ones.
