Currently finishing off genetics with one teacher, and in the beginning of respiration with another. But I've surpassed them already and have started reading ahead. Where are you all at?

Almost got all of F214 done (OCR), just got to get Photosynthesis out of the way :bored:.

I'm really excited to start all the cellular control and genetics stuff after half term!

How have u already managed to go through the whole of F214 content. Are u using CGP or official textbook. I am using the official textbook. but gonna scrap that and move onto CGP as i see thats whats relevant to the exam. Could u tell me how u structuring your revision. I really want to finish everything by end of nov so i can move onto F215 (THE LARGER UNIT!)

Cheers buddy

My school started teaching it in the final term of Year 12, so most of Excretion and Homeostasis was assumed at the start of Year 13.

I use the official textbook and occasionally the CGP Student Book, the revision guide is ****.

And I haven't done any revision yet, far too lazy. I'm only doing the homework I'm set in school.

Aha not bad. I've already finished respiration. I think the last module looks interesting though.

Simple. Right before the summer holiday, our teachers taught us the first module which was excretion. During the summer holiday I covered this alongside another module, being communication & homoeostasis. The first week of school I bought a really fantastic book (CGP is trash in my opinion but to each their own) - Which had all the necessary knowledge in it without the excessive crap. I read through it and familiarised myself with the concepts that I would tackle in class. For example, I went through the process of glycolysis and the kreps cycle, when we're supposed to be doing it next week after this half term. I make sure to stay at least one topic ahead at all times, and to always go over what I've learned in class on the same day. Right now, I've overtaken them by quite a bit and am doing Module 2 & 3 in unit 2 - Clones are so fascinating!

I took OCR A-level biology last year. Let me add that was the longest and most strenuous A-level ever >.>

Good luck though guys, you can use http://a2biology101.wordpress.com/downloads/ to facilitate your learning, and then test your knowledge using old (specimen) past papers from www.xtremepapers.com
