    Hi TSR,

    I have a friend who is doing AQA Biology, and she wants to know what is the best way for her to get a really good score within her ISA's? She really needs an A (she's applying to dentistry) and she is finding it difficult to find resources for ISAs (or practice ones for that fact) what is the best way for her to prepare, what resources could reallty help her?

    Thanks

    Hey I did AQA Biology

    I think getting a good grade in the ISA's is just down to personal skill, and some people have more skill than others. I was rubbish at the ISA's whereas some were brilliant.

    Sorry I can't be of much more help.

    1) Section (A) is easy. Make sure you know the experiment inside out, go through each step working our why you did what you did.

    2) Make sure you have a sound knowledge of the theory behind the experiment. For example if you're doing light intensity and photosynthesis, make sure you know the light independent reaction in detail.

    3) Practice science at work questions. You can't really know what’s going to crop up in section (B), so the only thing you can do is practice application, graphs and other science at work questions until your exam technique is perfect.

    Thanks about it really.
