I would be eternally grateful if anyone could post some key points that I need to know for the higher tier additional biology paper tomorrow? Also if you have any predictions on what could be on the paper, or any revision sources that you may use.

Hi
I did the paper last year and if you are on the AQA spec then use http://www.my-gcsescience.com/ to help you revise and just state the obvious and dont be afraid of writing too much.

Can I ask? Have you revised for the biology test? Asking whats on it the test tomorrow implies that you haven't revised.. or have just revised everything.

Here's whats on Unit 2:

-Cells
Yeast
Respiration and anaerobic respiration
Bacteria
Structuring of bacteria cells
Plant cells
Structuring of plant cells
(Structuring of cells in general; ribosomes, mitochondria etc)
Specialised cells

-Diffusion
-Tissues, organs and organ systems

Photosynthesis
Limiting factors
How plants use glucose
Measuring distribution of organisms
Enzymes
Enzymes in the digestive system
Factors affecting digestive enzymes (denaturing by pH change, temperature)
Making use of enzymes
Basics of enzymes (what they are made up of etc)

-Aerobic Respiration
How aerobic respiration works
Effects of exercise

(I think the following are very important and deserve their own category)
-Cell Division
Meiosis
Mitosis

-Stem cells
Ethics (for and against stem cell therapies; research with stem cells)
-Inheritance
Punnet squares
Mendel
(Genetic conditions; not sure if needed; cystic fiberosis etc and its effects)

-Origins of life
Fossil evidence
Extinction
Isolation and speciation

-Aerobic Respiration
How aerobic respiration works

Don't forget anaerobic respiration, it's equally as important. and digestion under enzymes, including the uses of bile and how soluble food is absorbed by the large intestine etc.

Oops , my bad
I probably didn't make it clear but yes, I have revised each topic but not absolutely thoroughly. Where I only have a few hours left to revise, I wanted to see what the higher topics where just to thoroughly revise those. Thank you

Don't think they are decided until after all the papers have been marked as if most students did badly, the boundaries will be lower, if most did well, then they will be higher I guess? Don't take my word for it!
