    BTW guys, I just found this out from my teacher. The Heinmann textbook and the CGP OCR-Specific revision guide say different things about the use of ATP in muscle contraction - the book says to move and break the cross bridge, but the revision guide said to break and reset the cross bridge.

    Teacher said to move and break, just so you can all know.
    Thanks, move and break makes more sense to me.
    Or is it just because I have a grudge against Heinmann ever since they made year 3 maths workbooks...

    My teacher said we had to learn about autosomes, even though it's not in the book. Is this true?

    im planning on staying late, if it was something like math or chem i would sleep because thats all about understand, but bio is about knowing the content by heart

    Thanks guys!!! :3

    *Calculates* Hmm... 69% for the A assuming my resit doesn't change and UMS doesn't scale. That is do-able. I am pleased.
    i need that excalty as well, but im redoing unit 1, its making silly mistakes like this:

    in unit1 when they said why is an anti coagulant added, i wrote to prevent clotting.

    in the markscheme i needed to say it prevented clotting "during" dialysis.

    btw since were are on similar grades can i ask how far you are on the content, i should be finished by 4-5 then an hour of chem then recap, im not doing exam questions the dont help with bio

    revision guide for the win, btw people certain ethical topics are discussed more in the revision book, while the text book expects you to remember it from AS, the revision guide simply repeats it in A2


    anyone else just using the revision cards chuck111 created to revise AS?

    I know autosomes aren't the sex chromosomes, all we need to know about sex chromosomes is sex linkage... did she not mean we need to know that it's known as junk DNA or something?? :confused:

    i need 66%-72% (cant remeber my ums from unit 1)

    im sure content wise you will be fine (use revision book it follows the spec)

    after covering everything, im making sure i do stuff like refer to the question in my answer reading it carefully etc unit 1 really screwed me over

    Agreed. The coursework tasks should be sat in an exam hall after you've done two experiments and teachers shouldn't have access to mark schemes. -.-

    looking at the pages then repeating in my head the main points. im making sure i know everything by heart, doing a specimen then recap im not doing any other questions, doesnt help much except for small points, for big questions you would have learnt it the way it is in the book anyway

    Presuming you're talking about ecosystems, succession, speciation, blah... I call it fluffy biology.

    I learnt it by going over it with a relative (or a friend) missing out the keywords (which I would fill in) because it's really doesn't involve any skill, it's just bunches of writing anyone can relate to.

    haha, nice ill do the specimen now. Anyway, im doing chemistry as well! but i dont revise anything other than the subject i have for the next day, so today is biology only. I feel like i might have been slacking chem a bit but im more confident ever since january with chemistry, the OCR revision guide for chem is amazingly helpful lol.

    i loved the revision guide you can get 90% with them, this year i used the fat book because there wasnt so much waffle.

    doing the specimen should be enough for bio.

    btw you prob do this, but if you wanna practice for chem from the revision guide, learn from the revision guide them practice on exam questions form the fat book (btw what grades do you need if you dont mind me asking)
