So b1b2b3 exam went quite well for me, but I think this exam is going to be much harder, so any ideas of what might come up?

I agree, the B1-B3 exam was lovely.

However, given that that one wasn't too hard, OCR will probably make this one difficult.

We haven't even been taught all of B6 yet. It's quite a terrifying notion.

I agree. does this exam normally have higher or low grade boundaries than b1b2b3.

Lower. Last year it was only about 55% for an A*!

I think our teacher may have given us a B4-6 past paper. I'll check when I get home tonight. If I've got one, I'll try and upload it.

My teacher always gives us a full booklet of notes for each unit — here they are.

They're on Dropbox because they're too big to upload as attachments on TSR.

Are you revising purely off these notes and are they enough for an A*?

I use these notes combined with the CGP revision guide; together I've had no problem getting an A* in Biology.

I've hunted the Internet and found a few past papers; consider also that we can use the Additional Science papers for B4.

In total, this is what I think is useful:

Specimen Papers:



Past Papers:


Mark Schemes:
