Every time I do a past paper for biology as level, i always know the answer, but the way the questions are worded causes me to not know the answer.

Build your vocabulary so as not to be thrown by strange wordings. Also work on analysing questions (which you should be doing for coursework anyway). I often find that coursework questions are more vague than exam questions as you have longer to ponder over them. Get into the habit of picking out key words in a question. That helps me to no end!
