    I'm redoing this paper. The best quick revision site you can go to would be BBC bitesize IMO.

    -the haber process
    -nitrogen cycle
    -life/death of a star/the universe

    Hi im doing this tomorrow too. I revised module seven last night and i think sometimes its pretty obvious what sort of things will come up. For example, theres most likely something going to come up on osmosis or active transport, and then probably the equasion for plant energy or whathave you (maybe i need to revise this abit more tonight..lol) I made some notes and theyve really helped too..ok got them, the equasion is for photosynthesis carbon dioxide plus water equals glucose and oxygen. I had a look at bitesize and it looked ok, but we were told at teachers at school its more based for foundation tiers as its available for everyone, and plus its not in modules and tomorrow its just modules 7-12. Im revising out of these books we got given which are spilt into the two exams, theyre really good. Il be revising most of tonight - along with textiles so if you need any help just ask! x

    teh life cycle of stars have they not only come up one, if something comes up one year it doesnt come up the next as like paper 1, there was nothing in it from the previous years papers, therefore i am revising mainly on the areas whcih havent come up in the paper in the last 3 years e.g (rutheranlds) theory had never come up about firing alpha particles to gold therefore came up this yera its like a cycle i beleive..........

    I think the carbon cycle is gonna come up this year. They also seem to have the equation for mass of products in a lot of past papers- I think this year they might change it to mass percentage or some other equation from patts of chemical change. Stars has come up quite a lot over the past few years, so look out for more 'forecy' type questions than space related ones.

    what? Im doing that paper

    paper 1 was: inheritance & selection, structures and bonding, waves and radiation, plus some or humans as organisms, maintainence of life, metals

    so this one is: environment, patterns of chemical change, forces, plus some of earth materials, energy, electricity
    NO year 10 Biology!- why would there be osmosis? its not part of the environment module

    Yes! I'm, almost certain it will come up. I have a feeling they'll quiz us about raising/lowering temperature and reasons for it, too.. they've never done that before!
