    Yeo but im doing Germany, Kaiser to Fuhrer. Now i know why people dont do both biology and history a levels, the amount of stuff to learn is immense!

    Falcon91 - I find chemistry harder but dont have to revise as much as i do for biology to get a decent grade
    Thanx TSR STAR ooh thats almost as bad as mine 3 exams in a row. Good luck to you too.
    At least I have 7 days to revise for the retake :woo:
    Yeah crazy stuff. I still have half my history AND biology to do :bawling: Good luck with your exams though!!

    Hey.

    I've just stumbled across this really good bit of information. It's to do with the exam and how they're assessed.



    Yeah, so basically that's what we should expect. About 20% of the marks will be synoptic! While only 36% is actually recalling/ copying what you've remember from the book. So it's not just memorising the stuff, it's making sure you understand it! Which I think is mainly where I mess up I used to see biology as just a memorising subject when it is in fact not the case.

    Anyway, I'm tired. Gonna go to bed and wake up early to start C4 revision for Tuesday.

    Well i thought about it this way...half of it was understanding last year. So we those of us who did learn it all off and got good marks DID understand it. So we probably do get it, but in Jan i went in expecting just to rattle off info + i panicked lol. Im sure youll be fine >.< Although, how do you work on your understanding, as you said above? :P

    In the meantime, ive got to do computing revision, maybe some biology later

    I'm okay with applying the vague idea of a thing to other things, but fail at memorising... So like any other sensible person I concentrated all revision efforts on the latter, and was needless to say, completely screwed over d:

    Also, I find myself constantly stretched for time in in biology exams D: Does anyone else get that? I wasn't even able to finish the Jan paper on time.

    The 20% synoptic is probably included in the A01/2/3 sections.

    Yeah. But I don't think it'll be too bad. Probably just stuff like how immobilised enzymes work in industry or sustainable management. That kind of thing... I think. :rolleyes:

    Oh yeah.

    Gah, got so much more revision to do for this exam. But now I'm doubting whether all these paper packs generated from past papers will help with the all 3 sections.
