Hey,

I just got the CGP book as a secondary source of revision and there's something terrible and confusing going on here..

This is the spec of the CGP for unit 1, section 1.

ImageImage

And this is the actual, official spec of the course for unit 1, section 1,

Image

As you can realize, the CGP spec looks like a different syllabus.
Is that normal? Cause I'm utterly confused about this! The difference is not simple to not think about it.

Please, if you have anything useful to say, just say it.
Don't suggest another books to me or stuff like that, just tell me if that's normal or not.

Thanks in advance.

Don't worry! It's the right one haha, some parts of the syllabus are just spread out in different sections in the CGP guide like "Lifestyle", you just have to search for them, often they'll show up in the index

It'll help you remember stuff for when you have to start revising towards your exams. Most of the info you'll remember though would come out of the mark schemes for each past paper, make sure you do every single past paper for AS biology. If you learn from your mistakes and revise what you're good at then you certainly have a higher chance of getting an A, its never guaranteed however since biology has a lot of application questions.

Yes, it is normal.

If you want to get an A, go over what you will be doing in lesson before the lesson.

Read about it from various books and sources, do questions from various places make notes and revision cards i.e. different cells and their functions.

Then, when you do the work in class you will have a better understanding. If there was anything you weren't sure about, you may learn it from your teacher or you could ask them to go over it- they will appreciate this.

Then, when you get home go over it one last time and even do some exam questions on the topic. Keep referring back to the notes and revision cards as you carry on through the year and inshallah by may you will be a Biologist .
