    I'm struggling to get my head round the Photosynthesis and Respiration topics for A2. My teacher taught it all at the same time and I've gotten really muddled up between the two, with all the cycles etc.

    Does anyone have any good revision notes/websites they wouldn't mind sharing? Or ideas about the best way to learn the steps without getting them mixed up?

    Any help at all will be greatly appreciated, I'm desperate!

    To avoid muddling up photosynthesis and respiration, watch a few videos on youtube. or here is another source:
    htt ps://w ww.khanacademy.org/science/biology/cellular-respiration
    htt ps://ww w.khanacademy.org/science/biology/photosynthesis
    That's what I did. I don't have my notes right now, but another idea would be to use flowsheet diagrams.

    Ask more specific questions and I'll try and help you out.

    I don't have time to write up everything I've learnt on photosynthesis/celluar respiration though.

    They are nicely quite similar though.

    I used YouTube for my revision. They were extremely helpful for teaching me the photosynthesis and respiration units. Do a section a day and don't push yourself too much.

    If you are doing OCR F214, this guys videos are awesome



    He covers the whole processes involved in both photosynthesis and respiration.

    Perhaps split the respiration topic into 2 large sub-topics, anaerobic and aerobic. Then for photosynthesis, split it into the light dependent and light independent stages. Also I find trying to be visual helps. Think about them as processes. One thing leads to another - where in the cell does each stage happen? Is there a diagram associated with it (eg. the Calvin cycle), and also, understand and use all the key terms.
