Thought I'd make this thread so everyone can talk about the upcoming exam.

Yes, it is months away and we have only started learning the syllabus but if you need any questions clarifying etc. this is the place to do it!

Talk away

Seriously people? Your exam is 4 months away. Don't revise like crazy; last year I started in october and did about 30-1h per subject every day or so. Otherwise I'd end up worse and be stressed.

im getting scared looking at the spec- so much to do and learn in 4 months, let alone revising and going over it all.

Good thread, thanks for posting. How are you finding it all so far - have you learnt about the lung and exchange surfaces yet? Has anyone got any advice for this exam?

Thanks,

Joe

Hey Simibean,

Agreed; there certainly is a lot to cover - are you learning one of the two units; or them both simultaneously?


Kind Regards,

Joe

Re-taking this in my second year so it is possible to survive! :rolleyes:
Honestly, there isn't that much to learn, wait till you get to F212! But anyway here are some great notes- they are not my own I found them on here but are a great revision resource

Hey Harriet,

Thanks for the notes - they look very good (thank you to the original poster too!). Ahhh; that doesn't sound good - I'm finding the first module hard enough as it is.

Hope things go well for you this year.

All the best,

Joe

Hi, I did the exam last January and just thought I'd give you a tip. I know at first there already seems loads to learn, if you can try and read around the syllabus, like don't just learn what's on it but read up on scenarios related to it. A level exams (especially in biology, and especially with OCR!) love to give you these annoying 'suggest why...' questions, and the more your read around the topics, the better understanding you'll have and you'll be able to answer those questions easier! Hope this helps and good luck with your biology studies

This x10! Strange benefit of doing this module in your A2 year is you've got more knowledge and know how things relate

Hi everyone I'm in Year 12 taking this exam in February,

It really doesn't seem that far away does it :/

Our lessons are split between two teachers, one teaching the gas exchange and the other about cells.
Already I'm a bit worried about my 'cell' teacher, she's kind of useless. So I can see myself panicking and needing to find out information from this forum in a couple of months! :L :P

I'm in the same situation, I have a really good teacher for the cardiac cycles topic and then a not so good one for cells and the thing is that his topic is the one that has the exam first but I still revise so I should be alright. Also is your exam in January or Febuary?

I'm doing A2 biology now and I'm retaking this unit

OCR like making up weird questions and in the exam you have to use specific words or you won't get the mark. I did practice papers and got A's and B's but in the exam something went wrong and I ended up with an E :confused:
