Hello everyone,

I hope everyone that's currently in Yr11 has succeeded in their unit 1 papers (I did ), but as we know Christmas trials and the Unit 2 exams in January comes up. Apart from the specimen papers on the new specification, are there any other papers published by AQA based on the new specification. Because a while back I found an online GCSE new spec paper somehow but I'm unable to find it , even if there are any papers that are available to teachers-only.

Anyway thank you very much and the TSR community for this lovely community, and anyone in Yr11; good luck to your exams

Everything is going good, in the unit 1 exam I had 2A* and an A for Biology . But for Unit 2 I think I will do great in Biology but Chemistry is looking tough, as for revision I don't do a lot to be honest, since I've English controlled assessments, but the main revision for this is planned for the Christmas holiday :P

What about you?

Very nice on the Physics, Biology was really crappy, I can remember messing it up in the exam. Anyway, I revised from the books and that was all. The new spec books are good, eventhough they lack some info. apart from that I did some past papers. And I did not even look back over a word I had written down in class

What about you?

Its basically the textbooks that we use in class, we were recommend by our teachers to buy them and use them, its called: AQA GCSE - Biology, by: Nigel English / Published by: Longman.

These ones:

Do you have any other techniques we can share? :P because the specimen papers published are way different than the exams that come up

My Biology teacher keeps setting unit 1 work eventhough we're doing the unit 2 exam in January :s

Do we have to learn the unit 1 work for unit 2 as well??

Hiya! I'm in yr11 too, and i have finished my unit 1 last year with grades of A* in chem and a C in biology & physics (thats only because my school put me in foundation and wouldn't let me go into the higher.. But, as i achieved full marks on foundation... I'm resitting the exam this january for biology and physics for higher... Plus, I have biology and physics unit 2 too this jan! :/ I have revising and making notes... but, for unit 2 i want to try some past papers which are totally out of spec on the AQA website... do you guys have any questions to revise from??

Is there any advise you would give on the chemistry unit 1 exams; this could be in the form of revison material, tips and predicted topics/questions which may be likely to come up. :P

Hey guys! Yup, I'm in Y11, doing the exams too. I'm slightly confused because I can only find the example papers for tier H if you're referring to the ones here: http://www.sciencelab.org.uk/support...rk-schemes.php

But anyway, I'm just going over the textbook and I think I'm fine with everything so far. I'm also looking for someone to talk to about these exams (Over TSR,skype, whatever) so we can discuss certain topics, possibly test our knowledge and stuff. I just know it's easier to revise with someone else

I'm also doing a B1 resit! So in total in January I'm doing: B1, B2, P2, C2

I use the Nelson Thornes AQA books. They're really good and cover the majority of the stuff on the syllabus.

Coool! I did the same as you-ish.

My revision is going extremely well for all sciences for unit 2, I have finished revising for Biology and Chemistry and have done half of Physics. I'm planning to revise the rest of physics and recapping the other two sciences after then 10th of January thus, is when my exams for french, english and business studies are over. So, I can focus more on the sciences

I think the most difficult science for unit 2 is physics, however, not even this is that hard if you know the content and know how to apply it. It can however get a bit confusing. Likewise, I've done all the mocks and got 53/60 in chemistry A*, 47/60 in Biology A* and 46/60 in physics A*.

I would just like to ask, do you have any AQA french, AQA business studies unit 1 or OCR english language (infromation and ideas 2 hour) paper and OCR literature - Journet's end 45 minute exams in January
