Has anyone got model answers to the topics in BIOL4 & BIOL5
I realised my problem at AS was not learning the markscheme answewrs early enough, even though I knew the theory and understood the content. I learnt the ms only like a week before the exam.

I got 88ums in BIOL1
100 in BIOL2

Im aiming for the A this year :/ so yeah if you have any resources please post

Ah unlucky! In terms of model answers, what I found best was spending ages looking at mark schemes for questions on specific processes etc. , helped especially for BIOL1 but also worked for BIOL2. For example, if you want to guarantee full marks on a question asking you to describe the process of eutrophication for BIOL 4, search for a past exam question on eutrophication and incorporate the mark scheme answer into your revision notes. Have you got the AQA A2 Biology endorsed textbook?

Yes, this way you know what you're writing when revising will actually get you marks, so you're not missing the point when just using the textbook. Make sure you leave some exam papers untouched to use as mocks close to the actual exam though.
The textbook actually has the points from the specification which helps you condense things down too
