    I couldn't already see an A2 Biology thread however I noticed there was an AS Biology thread so here it is ..

    For those who want to either discuss A2 Biology, or even need help

    Past Papers: (Specifications are also available using these links)
    AQA : http://www.aqa.org.uk/subjects/scien...d-mark-schemes

    OCR : http://www.ocr.org.uk/qualifications...ogy-h021-h421/

    Edexcel : http://www.edexcel.com/quals/gce/gce...s/default.aspx

    WJEC : http://www.wjec.co.uk/index.php?subj...=21&list=paper





    SYNOPTIC ESSAY PACK: https://www.dropbox.com/s/iprbtmo7vh...0Pack.pdf?dl=0


    The following Youtube channel contains very good walkthroughs of fully explained Biological mechanism relevant in A2 Biology:
    http://www.youtube.com/user/khanacademy/videos

    I also have a PDF copy of a guide to writing the synoptic essay containing examples which have gained full marks, so PM me your email and I will be happy to send it

    I also have 'exampro' but only for AQA, which I would also be happy to send to anyone who PM's me their email

    I have done A-level AQA Biology already so if you need help with anything, just quote me

    I'm here!

    Can evolutionary theory and behavioral biology be added to A2? then its highely likely that I'm a permanent user in this topic. Thanks again for the thread!

    Nice to hear you. Would you be kind enough and create an A2 thread for Physics and Chemistry too, please? I'm very fascinate in natural science, not only in Biology!

    Can someone please help me with this question?
    'The increase in productivity when manure was applied was lower than for other forms of nitrogen fertiliser. This is ecause the manure has to break down before its nitrogen is released and this process takes a few months. How might a farmer who spreads manrue on his/her crops, use this information in order to improve productivity?'

    Great idea - as with the AS thread.

    I've survived OCR AS and A2 Biology so if anyone has anything OCR specific, quote me!

    I would say by either using Nitrogen fertilizer or by letting the manure stand for a few month and then spreading it on the fields.

    The website isn't very clear about what you do, is it? I've gone to see my head of biology about it and she said that she'd sort it out, so I'm not sure on the details but you could try and do the same thing. I think that maybe registration isn't open yet so that's why the details aren't listed; my teacher may have just meant that she would sign me up when it was possible to.

    Hm, not sure. The language they use would suggest not, though. Like here:

    "It is hoped that competing in the Olympiad will encourage students already interested in this valuable, wide-ranging and rewarding subject to continue their study beyond A-level."

    And "Round 1 - a two hour multiple choice paper taken online in schools between January 31st and February 6th"

    Still, no harm in asking them to clarify!

    I'd encourage all any any students, interested in taking a biology-based degree to seriously consider the olympiad.
