Hello, could anyone give me some advice with Biology please? (Don't read on if not)

I didn't think that I had to be writing notes whilst going along so now I have to write up notes for half of the AS course (We will have completed Unit 1 by Christmas and we will be doing Unit 2 next year and then it's exam time). I have no way of escaping writing all of these notes because on the one quarter of the course (I have two teachers, so I am referring to one half of Unit 1) the teacher gives really **** handouts which I have thrown in the bin, all of them. And the booklets which the other teacher gives I have completely chopped up to summarise, I did this for everything we've done with her and I've realised it isn't helpful. So I have no other option than to write out my own notes in an A4 refill pad using the textbook and my remaining class notes together. I am aiming to have finished by January so then when I start HBIO2 in January I'm not still catching up and I can focus on Unit 2.


Once I have done this, I will use the A4 Project books to refer to when revising, because if it comes to exam season and I think 'okay, time to make some revision resources'.. all I will have is the textbook if I don't make these notes.

I'm going to start making revision resources for HBIO1 in January i.e. flash cards, youtube summary videos, I'm gonna do 2 past papers in the next week ready for the mock and 1 over Christmas, after doing them I will mark them with the mark scheme and make notes using the examiner's report and I will refer back to this to help improve exam technique.

When I feel like I've revised a few topics enough to completely understand everything I need to know for them, I will start passively revising them from the CGP revision guide and get on with the things I'm struggling with.

What do you think? Is this a good action plan? Is it feasible? Any criticisms/ideas/tips?

Thanks very much. Image
