    Only just over 2 months now until the exam. Hows everyones revision going? To be honest I really dont like this unit as its mainly to do with ecology and the boring biology stuff...lol. I have also attached the June 2010 and January 2011 past papers with their mark schemes for revision purposes!!! The others can be found on the AQA website. Enjoy

    I think I'm going to use the Bill Indge questions, past papers, Nelson Thornes questions and my previous notes for revision. Wbu?

    Did you sit this paper in june 2010 or january 2011? I'd be well happy with 88 ! Obvioulsy, if you need an A*, retake the paper but in my opinion its hard to improve with this paper, especially with all the HSW questions. I'm just going to use the AQA nelson thornes text book and the CGP revision guide to revise and make notes from. Then do all the past papers and go through the exam style questions in the text book. By the way, I only need an A and I have BIOL4 AND BIOL5 in this summer!

    I did this paper in Jan 2011. Hmm, I found I got 51/75 in the exam (which gave me 88 UMS). Looking at the mistakes, I just didn't explain myself properly and made some dumb calc mistakes so I think I can improve.

    How many exams do you have in June? I have 5, which isn't too bad I think

    Same. Unit 5 is so much better in terms of content. How far along are you with your revision?
    Unit 4 is so dull I was so depressed when I found out I need to resit.

    I'm taking the exam in june and I am seriously freaking out over the ecology stuff and the wishy-washy answers. Can anyone give me any serious revision tips or any sort of help, especially from those that took the exam in January. I heard it was pretty solid!!!

    thanks

    ahhh don't freak out too much. I'm sitting the same exam, and to be honest, the core Biology is pretty easy. only advice I can give you is to do all of the past papers available on the AQA website. I can email you my revision notes if you feel in desperate need!
