    So how are you guys going about revising this? 1 Month left!!!

    Basically I'm making powerpoints (copying everything from CGP Revision guide) & then learning it all. The CGP revision guides cover every single point in the syllabus so thats good. I maths we just do past papers, but this is a new course so we don't have any for biology.

    anyone using other methods?

    I quoted you with questions from behaviour but then I realized you said "except behaviour", so there was no point in your answering them lol

    Behaviour is easy!
    Ive got to pretty much your point now, except...where you havent done behaviour, i have not fully done genetic engineering. I just cant seem to finish the damn topic no matter how hard i try.

    Anyway, sleep time. Cya

    Behaviour!

    There are two types of behaviour: Innate and Learned.

    Innate behaviours suit invertebrates well, as they do not look after their young, do not have a long life span, and they live solitary lives.

    Innate behaviours are genetically determined. They are rigid and inflexible. All members of the species will show the same type of behaviour and perform it in exactly the same way in reponse to exactly the same stimuli. Innate behaviours are any animal responses that do not have to be learned.

    There are 3 types of innate behaviour:

    1) Reflexes, in particular escape reflexes.
    2) kineses-orietation behaviour in which the organism increases its rate of movement when in unfavourable conditions, the movement is non-directional.

    3) taxis- this is oreintation behaviour, in which the direction is determined by a certain factor, such as light.

    Learned behaviour is any animal response which adapts with experience. Again, they are catergorised into several types:

    1) Habituation- this is where upon exposure to a repeated stimuli , wherby there is no reward or punishment the animal will no longer respond to it.

    2) Imprinting- where a younger animal associates itself with an older animal, usually the parents. It occurs in a sensitive region only and it vital to the animal learning skills such as flight in birds.

    3) Classical conditioning- when an animal learns to associate a pair of events and performs an action in relation to one in anticipation to the other.

    4) Operant conditioning- when the animal assocates a certain operation with a reward/punishment

    5) Insight learning- solving a problem and learning from it.
