Good idea!

I'm sitting BY5 too (and resitting BY2 and BY4)

I was only 2 marks off an A in BY2 and BY4, so I'm not too worried about them, but I really should do more work on BY5!

How's the revision going? Have you finished the course in school/college?

Hey!


Revision is not going to brilliant. I've done posters on sexual reproduction in plants, and variation and evolution today and I'm attempting to write notes on energy and ecosystems.

We've not finished yet no - the tutor has left energy and ecosystems and the human impact one at the end for us to kinda do on our own. We've all been given a power point to do and present to each other.... like we're gonna learn from that! So I'm attempting to write notes on this but it is killing me so much!
How about you?

We've finished the course, but I haven't written all of my revision notes yet

I think I've spent wayyy too much time on chemistry!

Ah, the ecosystems bit is boring but easy, so you'll be ok I hate all of the DNA/mRNA/transcription/translation business...so much to learn!

Same here Just trying to pick up any extra marks to ensure I get the A I need!

The only topics of BY5 that I've actually enjoyed are sexual reproduction and genetic illnesses - the rest is awful!

Revision is 'meh' at the moment

I've focused so much on Chemistry, it's like I've forgotten that I actually do A-level Biology!

Hello!

I know there is a Chemistry one of these, and I've found it really helpful, so I thought I'd make a biology one!

I'm sitting BY5 in the summer? Anyone else? Any advice on websites for revision etc?


Good Luck!
I did HB4 and BY5 last summer.

I found the best way was to memorise the textbook as much as possible, learn all the flow diagrams of photosynthesis/respiration/muscles from the CGP book, memorise WJEC spec by writing it out a few times (they make the questions from phrases in the textbook/spec) then do AQA past papers. I got 120 in HB4 and 114 in BY5. Having got a B at AS.

Hi everyone

Seeing as the Biology and Chemistry threads are proving to be a hit, I though I'd make one for the Maths students!

Nope, still doing all the little human-impact-on-whatever stuff, like the fishing and that.

Also FML, I lost my access to past papers and mark schemes before I even looked at them. D:
I need them for tomorrow - BY1. >.<
