WJEC BY5 June 17th 2013Watch
And I know what you mean, you have to pick and choose through BI5 papers, although my teacher said there's hardly anything relevant on them.
I agree about the past papers, really irritating. I've made a whole stack of revision cards for this module so I'll probably do all the papers and then just use those to make sure I'm up to scratch on all the learning...
Does anyone know where to get hold of a more detailed specification? The one I could find is only about two short paragraphs per topic, so I'm not sure how we're expected to know what they want us to learn really.
I resat BY4 last year and got 96/120 which is about the lower limit I'll need to have a chance of pulling my grade up to an A, so I'm really hoping BY5 won't be too bad. Hello13, thanks for that. There's still a risk that the mark scheme will be worded differently for the same topics, so you have to be cautious about learning from any Bi mark scheme. After all, WJEC mark schemes seem annoyingly specific about wording.
Hi I'm sitting By5 next week too (and By4 tomorrow O_o) feel unprepared since there is a lack of past papers for by5 :/ anybody have any idea about essays that might come up? I'm kind of hoping for a succession essay.
WJEC haven't got any resources at all for their exams - and there aren't any decent revision sites either, like there are for OCR...
Does anyone want to help compile a set of essays that could come up? If a few people write like 5 or so each then we could be onto something!
Transcription and Translation (which would be really good)
Meiosis (this didn't come up last June so it's going to be in the paper somewhere)
Fertilisation and Implantation (no mention of this last year)
Pollination and gametogenesis in plants
Fertilisation and seed development (no mention of this last year)
Mechanisms that drive evolution and speciation (I hope not)
DNA fingerprinting and PCR
Energy through trophic levels, GPP, NPP
Overfishing etc (Dear God no)
So basically everything
If I had to pick two I would go for;
Fertilisation and Implantation and
Energy through trophic levels.
