Yeh just scanned, but looks like the kind of thing I did :P But its best you go through the book yourself and do your own notes the way you would (like abbreviate certain words and add arrows etc so you dont end up having 100 cards lol)(Original post by aimz08)
Okay Thanks...would you say these notes are good to make revision cards from?
And also when you go through every point on the syllabus, it will take 8hours+ to do so, but do it over a couple of days... And as long as you go through every point and understand whats happening it should be ok because you have covered everything they can ask. If there is something you dont understand, but cant get your teacher, then try google or ask your friends too.
Testing your friends is great too, because if your asking them questions you will learn aswell as them, and there will be bits that one knows and not the other so you can learn from eachother also.

I thought I'd get 135+ after I saw the grade boundaries, but I only got 123. Even F214, felt I got enough to get over 81/90, but only got 77... disappointed.

got 135/150 for unit 2 AS
77/90 for unit 1 A2
and 80/150 for unit 2 A2 (D)
i was ill on the last one, and panicked too, but i didnt think i did that bad.
i need 11 more ums for an A, besides revising from the official text book and doing exam questions.
my unit 1 A2 was a retake, did exact same revision in jan, but only difference was i was determined to answer as simply a possible and i got an A. i miss the good old days where if you revise your ass off for days/weeks/months, you would get the grade deserved and not be given a swing and miss situation because of the new style of exam
i only need a C in this exam to get an A, but i have so little confidence ever since the unit 1 incident in jan im not sure even with a retake i will get that unless lucky

i dont think so, but u might have to go back to your school/ collage to redo them at the time they are doing it, im thinking of resitting whilst at uni, i hope that is possible.
ye you defitely can i got aaaaad in my modules, the d was in f215 but was severly ill but i cant blame it on that, but since the jan exam i got paranoid about what answers they wanted so stupid panic got me. For the f213 retake i did no extra revision but simply calmed myself down and i got an a.
I need 11 more ums in f215 but i have so little confidence becuase its not like AS i cant base my chances on how much revision ive done.....
If anyone could help me with this new exam style i want to be able to go into the exam confident thinking i can get at least a c/b in this module, the same confidence i have with my other subjects thinking i can get a b+..........i dont like this new bio exam style.
Well done to everyone else im really happy for youLast edited by CHILLIN-DRAGON; 30-08-2010 at 00:47.
