    Use an advanced text book to go over things you don't understand

    make flash cards with key words and important sequences that you might need to know

    make sure you've learnt everything and remember it all and THEN do the past papers. If you get any questions wrong re-write the right answer and make sure you learn it. questions are always repeated.


    I didn't get an A in biology. I got a B overall but got A in 3/4 of the exams

    all the best, ask for anymore questions

    Just make sure you understand EVERYTHING, make links and just remember that everything in the body happens for a reason. So try to find the reason. Ask questions in class and don't give a crap if you think your questions are stupid, as long as you understand that's the only thing that matters. I used to never ask questions in my GCSEs but would constantly ask questions in AS. Once you've done that you'll notice that there's ALOT less stuff left to memorize from the syllabus, then make flashcards and do past papers last. This is how I got my A in AS.
