    It will be very difficult for her to improve now, assuming she's A2 but all is not lost I recommend she starts NOW!! Methodically working through the text book bit by bit, not avoiding bits she doesn't understand. The key to OCR is understanding so you're able to apply your knowledge to an unknown scenario. Past papers and example exam questions are vital (and lots of them)

    As a parent, I'm not sure what you can do other than just being supportive. Maybe asking her if there's anything she needs testing on. I made my mum sit down with me and test me on the respiration part (link, krebs, oxidative phosphorylation, etc) so I had it stuck in my memory. Repitition and recall are they key in my opinion. Good luck to her

    Just out of interest, will she need to retake pretty much both years in the summer?

    Please, no one can fail more than me...I got a U!! 25/90, really was not expecting that bad, I am so angry and disappointed with myself. How the hell did you guys get full marks, As, and Bs?? Please enlighten me, I need a B in biology to actually go to uni. I am still so shocked, this has been the worst day of my life.
    If anyone has any revision techniques that they used, revision resources that they found very useful, then please feel free to tell me.

    Exactly, I'm really having a hard time understanding how some people on here get really high marks even though after the exam there was a lot of complaining. I'm just a bit shocked with an E. I don't know how to feel, hope people can give some advice on how they did so good.

    Long revision bashing sessions. (By long I mean sometimes in excess of 40 hours cramming. No sleep.) Late nights, early mornings and lots of coffee :|

    Just resit, you need 65 for a B, so there really isn't any point. You're extremely intelligent, I just think the questions were a bit wtf? They can't make the same mistake in June, so yeah.
