    Hello to all AS edexcel biologists. As you are aware, we will be taking the Unit 2 exam in approx. two months (exactly 60 days from writing this).

    Of course, some of you may also be taking the Unit 1 exam, however, no discussion on that is permitted in this thread, as we want to keep replies relevant and on topic to benefit sole Unit 2 candidates.

    Please keep posts restricted to the following:

    • Revision resources and materials; excluding past papers* but including reports
    • Revision techniques
    • Revision advice
    • Predictions
    • Tips from your teachers
    • Experience from past exams if you're a retaker


    If you wish to post thoughts and feelings or any worries you have, feel free to do so but please incorporate the above into your post.

    The aim is to cross share everything of relevance from our different locations to help us succeed in the exam.

    Again, if you want to reply to this thread saying your looking forward to its replies, remember to incorporate the list from above into it so that everyone can benefit. Thanks for reading and I hope you can add something to this thread.

    *because this will lead to a chaotic thread and past papers aren't agreeably as useful to everyone. Thank you.

    I would be very grateful if you could post them. I don't think I can face taking this exam again unless I have a chance of passing it.

    Can I cash in my biology A level with unit 2 as a U grade if I have enough ums from other exams/coursework overall to get an ok grade?

So please please post these notes...you'll simply save my life
