    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

    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!
