    Done quite a lot of revision today, mainly just focused on both biology units. Already have written notes but I have started to type the notes up to aid my written notes, it really helps. Will do two past papers tomorrow (did an F211 one last week and got 57/60).

    Do we need to know about the circulatory system of insects? It's in the book but...
    I think I remember seeing a question asking about the difference between an open and closed circulatory system and the merits of those etc... but nothing on specific insects

    Haha, I couldn't agree more. It really is simple though, it's an open circulatory system and the heart is segmented (in simple terms).

    I'm going by a different technique of revision now, I aiming to set myself targets, like get 2 chapters done and understood for say F212. It does take longer but it works.

    How's your revision going?

    haha

    ohh nice, i revised most of the year for biology so I understand most things..

    I just need to nail the exam technique, so the only thing I am doing is pastpaper question and if I happen to not understand something I'll read over it in my revision guide!

    Just thought I'd post some predictions.

    Cardiac cycle, Oxygen and Carbon Dioxide curves-fetal + adult haemoglobin, bohr shift, meiosis and spirometer.

    Any guesses on the plant stuff??

    Translocation as transpiration and xylem came up in january. I doubt the cardiac cycle will come up in june but don't try and predict, just revise everything :P

    a question on the function of a specific organelle

    Magnification question

    Spirometer 6 mark question

    Question asking to label the xylem and phloem on a leaf

    My predictions are:

    • The need for exchange surfaces
    • Spirometer
    • Vessels (Lymphatic system, arteries etc.)
    • Haemoglobin
    • Plant transport (aphids and mass flow)

    I'm still revising everything though, can't risk it :P

    No, I just stick to the current spec questions. That way I can see what examiners want for this spec.

    I see I am currently doing old spec and will be moving onto new spec very soon. ( i have already done new spec once and some papers twice) I just need to synchronize myself fully with the examiners. For f212 I have not done a lot :s

    I have to do a bit for F212, haven't started papers yet, will hopefully get 1 or 2 done this weekend.

    I have been doing notes (I now have two sets of notes). I have not used the textbook, I feel it includes too much, there's a few mistakes too

    For me past papers and the CGP book does it!

    I have done all the past papers for it once

    I don't take notes- it doesn't work for me. I just cannot remember them :lol:

    I just answer questions then read the revision book now Works for me

    I am really motivated now as I got my chemistry mock back and got an A today and I have barely done anything for it yet yikes! It was an actual past paper I had not even done before too

    good luck :P

    Nice!!! Well done buddy!

    Yeah, I do the exact same, though I just wanted to do something active and type notes on the PC as well as written ones. After this I just read and do past papers, the CGP book is awesome!
