    what would be a specific example where your knowledge of chemistry has helped to solve a question on proteins, fatty acids etc?

    Very little, exam boards generally make it that within their modules you learn the range of science by doing physics chemistry and biology, thus there tends to be little overlap, unless say in chem you have a specialised module like I had biochemistry.

    For example my gf did A Level chem as did I but I did gibbs energy and entropy and she didn't cause on her exam board that was taught in physics, but in mine it was taught in chem.

    Ocr chem and aqa biology have a fair amount of overlap if not specifically it will make you much mroe familair with terms used etc..
