    Is there an existing BIOL4, 2014 thread already? I tried looking for one but can't seem to find any and don't want to make a duplicate.
    I don't think there is

    I think it would be best to memorize the mark scheme inorder pick up on 2,3 marks as the AQA is very specific on key words and phrases and I would suggest you not to rely on your notes that you make at college. Read the nelsons textbook and also use the CGP Revision guide too. I Hope that helps !

    By revision you do mean just revisiting the chapters we have learnt right? because i haven't finished the whole of unit 4 yet lol i don't think unit 4 is too bad, it's quite straight forward. Unit 5 is a bit more difficult but really interesting how's your revision going?

    Exactly! lol yes i am, urghhh gross i'm finding chemistry so difficult it's like no matter how much revision i do, i'm not really improving after a certain point. I hate unit 5-thermodynamics with a passion wbu? oh i see, i applied to Imperial, Barts, Kings, and Notts. BMAT results were rubbish though so i've already decided Impy is out of the picture lol

    You might find this useful

    I've been finding it hard because it's mainly application, it's better to practise questions. Hope this helps, they have helped me
