    wish i was in your position already ahaha! i've focused too much on chemistry and neglected biology a little good luck though, sounds like you'll boss it

    Jeez! I'm the opposite again, maths is the least of my worries as I only need B/C's for an A, although hopefully i'll do better so i have the option of further! It'll all turn out well in the end!

    Whilst I have finished with F212, I'm more than happy to bounce questions off each other.

    Equally, if anyone has anything they require clarifying then ask!

    Hi,
    I'm doing the F212 biology exam in June. I got a B in F211 when I did it in January. I am aiming for at least an A and I was wondering if anyone had any useful revision tips?

    just practice questions thats the most useful thing as you see what language the examiners and want and since questions are reused a lot it is very helpful

    they word the question in very odd way

    I often feel that they are not specific enough in the question but yet the mark shemes demand such specific answers

    They like giving general questions as they make you think and apply what you know and usually the mark scheme has many valid points to cover a range of answers I like those questions

    So is learning the mark schemes a useful way of revising?

    Definitely, i got 100% in my January exam and that would not have happened if I had not done loads of past questions and learnt the answers i got wrong from the mark scheme as about 10 marks out of 60 were exactly repeated questions :P

    Thanks I'll have a closer look at the mark schemes. Does anyone have any predictions as to what topics are more likely to appear in the f212 exam?

    DNA, enzymes, and evolution and classification as they didn't come up much in the january paper, I think it will be light on the food and health and heavy on the biodiversity
