    You have time, don't freak out. If you make notes, do that. If not, use whatever way you learn best. Ecosystems aren't impossible, it's just a problem of memorising it. Don't take too much in at once, it will overwhelm you. Try a module per session perhaps. Read notes/textbook, or if it works better for you, just work on questions open book. Then after doing all of that when we get closer to exams, start doing papers.

    Hey guys, I posted something similar like this a few days ago if you remember, but since then i've just had a flick through the whole of f215 and i really hardly know any of it And i'm freaking out I thought i would know a decent amount of f215, as i know most of f214 well, but i don't

    Like i said before i still I have to cover the last 2 modules myself, which god willing ill finish by the end of next wk (I've only started the ecosystems module but it seems ok). Now if i can go over most of f215 and memorize most of it before the exams start in June, without doing past papers for f215, do think i could get a low A (or a v.high B like a few UMS away from an A) for f215? Btw I haven't really had any tests/mocks for f215.

    Not joking, i feel like im going to fail my exams (btw I need AAB). Please, somebody give me some gd news.
    Honestly DO NOT WORRY! you have about a month which is plenty of time!!! Honestly don't freak out because that's the worst thing you can possibly do. I need to get an A in Biology and I haven't attempted an F214 or F215 paper. What I tend to do is do neat notes of the entire subject then do topic specific questions. Then i will plan to churn as many past papers in the half term and study leave! Don't be fased by people telling you how much they're doing or have done because the ones that shout the loudest are the ones that don't do as well

    Sure thang!
    F211 83/90UMS
    F212 144/150UMS
    F213 or whatever coursework is called 44/60UMS (lol)
    I honestly didn't know anything all year round because I never shut up in lessons. Anyway blah blah blah, I got a D in my mock in January which woke me the hell up! I started last years revision in Easter and by revision I meant started making neat notes. Didn't start papers til study leave I don't think!
    However this year I've been a lot better - talk less in lessons, more up to date with my notes etc. because I learnt from my slacking ways on last year!!

    Seriously Bio is just annoying me now...each page in the big book feels like an extra 5GB in my mind...I'd really just rather focus on other A-levels. How hard is it to get a B overall at A2?

    I managed 268 with the revision guide last year but I could've got higher if I had used the textbook version, it filled in all the gaps in knowledge

    this year looks more promising since im using the textbook
