    Go through the chapters, and make notes / learn them. Then do practice questions right away so that it sticks in.

    The best way is answering every single past paper possible, and reading the mark scheme for each one. It also helps to memorise answers for common questions like 'How is genetic fingerprinting carried out?', but get these answers from the mark schemes. Biology revision isn't really about knowing your biology, it's more about answering the exam papers in the right way to get the marks. I know many people who are good at biology, but they just don't know how to answer questions in the right way, and therefore lose a lot marks.

    i agree... learn what kind of answers the examiners are looking for, something else that also may help is the stuff they give out during the edexcel student conferences or something.. they have them on their website..
