    Is it worth going to a revision conference? I'm considering going on one for AS biology as my teacher is organizing for us to go but I am just wondering whether it is worth the time and money. I think I am doing fine so far in biology and I'm aiming for an A. :yep:

    If it's free then go for it!

    I went to a couple of Business Studies conferences last year and they were quite helpful. Not sure about biology conferences though as I've never been to any...

    If you're aiming for an A then I guess every little helps?

    It's not free but I am wondering if it's useful or not. :yep:

    I went to a History one last time and it was definitely worth it, it really drilled in a lot of the key parts and also gave me new insights into various things, which is possibly more likely to happen with a subject like History than one like Biology. Go for it IMO :yes:

    I've been to one for economics. We got a free book with tips/notes... pretty useful. For the actual conference it was what I think the head examiner telling us how to raise marks. So yeah, I would go if i was you, they basically spoon feed you on how to raise marks and hint at what questions might appear.

    The one I went to was Edexcel economics unit 1+2. Pretty sure our class is going this year again for unit 3+4.:cool:

    We only had one days notice to go for the biology one, I wanted to go but couldn't for a reason. But I'm going to one for chemistry so that's cool. :p:

    If you think it will improve your grades then go for it (but you seem to be doing well anyway). Some of them are very expensive though, hundreds of pounds for a three-day course? not so much.
