Hey, hope you're ok!

I got lower than you in both unit 1 and 2.
I resat them and managed to get near full ums in biology.

My technique:
1. First I would learn the content using CGP revision guides.
2. Do questions in an exam style, not past papers just yet. There are thousands of questions on line which are from the old spec AQA papers.
3. Do the new spec past papers 2 weeks before the exam.
BUT make sure you spend a lot of time marking it. If the exam is 1hr; spend 1hr marking it. Really learn the markscheme and anything you get wrong make a note of it.


The key thing with biology is to understand the content BUT be apply the content to exam style questions and the mark scheme helps with that.


If you have any questions PM me.
Hope everything goes well c:

Yeh i went from a C (just doing content) to like 138 UMS in unit 2 by focusing more on exam style questions and applying content.

Good luck!

Tips for the isa hmmm.

Tbh I really don't, Isas are just a thing you have to learn how to do.
Your teachers will probably do an example isa before hand which is similar to the real one and you can use that for help.

Sorry, I can't really help on isas
