    Yeh, I'm doing this as a resit, got 79 first time around. I would like an A* in biology and to get that I need 92 ums in the final exam, so (in theory) if I do better in this resit, I can get a bit lower in unit 3 because its more difficult. Are you taking unit 3 this summer?

    I am also taking the unit 3 in the summer again for the same reason to make it easier for me o get A* i.e. allows me to get lower in B3. Also I got 78 UMS first time round when I took it in January 2012 when the grade boundaries were SO HIGH!

    I hope to start on good friday, I have an art exam before that so coursework is somewhat of a priority. I highly recommend these books for revision:
    http://www.amazon.co.uk/Science-GCSE.../dp/1408508311
    http://www.amazon.co.uk/Science-GCSE...d_bxgy_b_img_y
    http://www.amazon.co.uk/Science-GCSE...d_bxgy_b_img_z

    They may be a little pricey, but they are well worth it! I got 88 ums in B2 using these, and i only revised for a few days before the exam. I will start earlier this time around and hopefully fare a bit better

    The january 2013 paper wont be released to teachers or students until at least after june, if your school retained a copy, it is possible that they can photocopy it for you, but it is impossible to access online
