Hey Tsr's

Well I made this thread as I am going to be doing all of the As Biology content in the summer holidays as I am picking up both As & A2 Biology in 1 year in year 13.

I made this as I thought anyone in this same position or yet to do Bio1 can share their ideas and work together and prepare for the Bio1 exam.

I have provided some links below that can help you with revision and learning the content, most of it is just for AQA but there is the odd link where the stuff on there overlaps to another specification. This shouldn't be an issue .

http://www.mrothery.co.uk/ (AQA)

Here is the spec you will be learning: http://filestore.aqa.org.uk/subjects/AQA-2410-W-SP.PDF

If you need any other help feel free to PM me.

All the best

Hi! I remember you from the medicine and chemistry forums!
Well I just finished AS Biology, but there's a huge possibility I will be retaking BIOL1 in Year 13 so I'm definitely subscribing to this thread! :P
Also, you might want to add a date of the exam to the title - It's 21st May 2014 AM
