    As if the microbes paper wasn't bad enough this friday, they throw a 25 mark synoptic essay in. Below are all the essay questions I've got in my biology file, i was wondering if anyone has any more they could add


    "Write an essay on one of the topics below"

    -The process of osmosis and its importance to living organisms

    -Energy transfers which take place inside living organisms

    -How the structure of proteins is related to their functions

    -The causes of variation and its biological importance

    -The structure and functions of carbohydrates

    -Cycles in biology

    -The biological importance of water

    -The movement of substances within living organisms

    -The different ways in which organisms use ATP

    -How the structure of cells is related to their function


    Any tips and advice as how to go about answering or revising for this would be great too

    You get the same synoptic titles as AQA A so it might be worthwhile looking at the thread on AQA A synoptic as well
    dont quote me it on it tho but i checked BYA8 and it had exactly the same titles as BYA9

    Yeah BYA8 is the same as BYA9
    But BYB6-9 are all part of the B syllabus and should be different from those in A?

    Some of the ones you've mentioned have already come up. i don't think they'll be on anytime soon. Two that could possibly come up are

    -Importance of lipids in living organisms
    -Maintaining an internal and external enviroment

    yeah so although questions 1 and 2 are different, the synoptic essay at the end is always the same for all specifications
