advice/tips for ocr biology AS Watch
Learn the diagrams quite early. Draw them ect. It makes life alot easier later on.
Go over each topic after you've learnt it and write it out again...keeps it nice and fresh.
Learn it to the spec (although this may just be me!)
Also, OCR papers are ridiculous. Really strangely worded questions. Good luck! =D
F212 doesn't get much harder either, just there is a lot more to know and understand. But don't let the dry topic of organelles make you feel as if you are up against a brick wall in biology.
Yep Unit 1 is not too bad and the stuff on the heart and circulatory system is brilliant. If I were you I would seriously aim for like 90%+ on this paper as Unit 1 is where all the easy marks are at. Things get much more difficult with Unit 2; the Biochemistry and Food and Health modules are not too bad but the Biodiversity and Evolution stuff is a real kick in the crotch...thats what let me down....as mentioned before, print off the content checklist from the CD at the back of the book and make sure you hit all the learning outcomes and you should get a good grade. I did this but only began to cover the Biodiversity and Evolution part of the checklist two days before the exam (had to miss my cousins wedding as a result!) and this cost me a grade A/B (was two marks from a B!). Dont know what your college is like but I learnt from last year that Bio lessons are a waste of time and you are best off learning everything in private study...start early and go through all the learning outcomes and you will smash it, guaranteed. Good luck
I did start revising a long time ago well at least i thought i was but it was like the half an hour thing
and now my exams are in jan bio chem and pyschology. I had two week holidays and one week which ive just wasted I got about a week and a half left. Does any one think i got a chance and how should i revise and make the most of the time i got left. I really want to do well but it seems im making the same mistakes as i did at gcse.
I know some of the major concepts but every time i try a past paper it seems im introduced to something totally new .
and alsoo does anyone ever feel that your friends just lie that they didnt do any revision just to make you feell like you dont have to do anything.
How is everyone revising? I've typed up all my notes and now everything seems to be revolving around post-its, haha. Still can't get my head around mass flow and the fluid mosaic stuff
Hope it's going well for everyone! There doesn't seem to be many people doing OCR, everyone seems to be on AQA...
