    oh wow. since there are no January exams, our school is doing both units together. for module 2, we are starting biodiversity after the holidays. for unit 1, due to the fact that my teacher is lazy and hardly shows up to the lessons, we are only on the lungs. im extremely worried that we will not be able to get through all of the contents by Easter

    i averaged out B's for my january mocks. i was wondering, do you guys think that now is the perfect time to start revising for my summer exams as i would like to get A's. im currently studying chemistry,biology and maths.

    My school did the AS Biology mocks for unit 1, as we have all finished that for a while now. I have personally kept revising it and, like in the mock, when completing past papers get 55+/60 so I'm fine with that now. Until the real paper I will just keep doing past papers and going over anything I forget, seems like the best way for me.

    However, on unit 2 it feels like we're a bit behind as we're only about half way in of module 2 of unit 2, so i've read ahead and made notes. I'm only just starting past papers on unit 2 which will be useful as i'll see what sort of stuff they want and the kind of detail. Even if we're not behind, it feels quite rushed, especially compared to how we went through unit 1.

    My school finished mathematics at christmas, chemistry about three weeks ago and physics will be finished during the week we're back from this half term, however with biology we still seem to have a good amount of content to get through! Just makes me a bit worried.

    Me 2 we just finished module 1 of unit 2 and took time and I understand it did exams questions and moves for unit 2 but still go 2 more modules to cover so I decided to make notes on biodiversity as I learn food and disease at school. At the moment I'm revising unit 1 trying to memorize and make flash cards and maybe later do exam questions.

    We have done the biodiversity section, we have done the biochemistry section (the longest module of Unit 2) and we just need to do food and health section, which shouldn't be too bad. You?
