    Hi guys

    im having to retake the last AQA biol 4 paper as i got 71/100 ums on the paper and need to get A's so therefore i was wondering how hard did people who sat the paper find it? i thought it wasn't hard but STILL did badly

    also does anyone know what mark you needed to get to get A* and full ums?

    do you think that the june biol 4 paper is going to be harder as the last one was a considerably easy paper?

    thanks!

    I think that Biology AQA papers are always a little vague, but I always find them weird and can never call my grade, but I managed to somehow get an A* in Bio4. Like you, I thought the paper wasn't that hard, but wasn't expecting a decent grade cause I mostly get C's for Biology.

    But it's worth trying again in June, if it doesn't put a burden on your other exams

    i found the paper pretty difficult - the question regarding yeast really confused me, but i managed to get an A* (thank god for that)

    i personally thing it will be of the same difficulty - if you're still averaging out on an A even with your unit 4 mark then i would say forget about unit 4 and focus on unit 5 as it's worth more than unit 4

    I found Biol4 very hard, just about got an A 80%. No longer on track for an A* unless I get 100% in Biol5... Not going to bother resitting Biol4 though, its covers mostly boring topics and this disinterest makes it difficult for me.

    God I know! I found unit 4 sooo dull. Can't stand resitting it
