    Hi everyone sitting the OCR biology F212 exam on the 3rd of June.

    Please use this thread for exam preparation, revision help & support, as well as any chat that refers to the OCR biology AS exams.

    Personally, I am quite nervous about this exam considering the exam length & the amount of information that we need to know for it, in comparison with the first F211 exam.

    What is everyone else doing for revision?
    Does anyone have any ideas of what some of the questions will be?

    I've started revision this week and realised that there's still loads of content my teachers haven't covered yet, so glad it's one of my last exams.

    I'm taking this exam and really struggling to find the best way to revise it as using the textbook to make mindmaps isn't proving very effective... D:

    Is this exam much more fact based than F211?

    I am dying of stress. Apparently my genius school decided its best to do all exams at once, both unit 1 and unit 2. So I have like Unit 1 and Unit 2 to do. Any tips on how I can practise Unit 2 effectively?

    You MUST do several past papers, this way you'll get to grips with just how specific examiners can be! I'd advise you to start F211 revision today as the exam is in 2 days!

    is anyone else finding the biodiversity evolution classification subjects really wordy in the book and pretty confusing about what we need to know?

    Oh god same I will honestly flip a lid if there's biodiversity! My teacher set it as "private study" meaning he didn't have time to teach the whole course, so I haven't a hope in hell for this exam

    our teacher just decided to skip alot of food/health/biodiversity out! i read through the text book and it was like every other page we hadnt done haha hopeless!! i think biodiversity has some easy bits though and i think i prefer that to food and health :/
    biological molecules is the best

    although if the f211 exam yesterday is a reflection of how hard this exam is going to be... we are all doomed
