    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.

    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.

    https://www.dropbox.com/sh/m2gp3nlvd...1z0rNCJ_xcTh1a

    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:
