    So I have my biology B2 and B3 on Tuesday, but I don't know if I know everything, I don't know how to revise anymore? Like I've done revision, I don't know whether I'm applying my knowledge to the questions properly, I really don't want to fail.

    I have a strange feeling there will be a 6 mark question about cells-tissues-organs-organ systems this year. Most of the 6 markers throughout the years have been easy, especially last years one.. I wouldn't be surprised if there's a question about speciation..again

    AND READ THE CGP BOOKS THEY'RE SO USEFUL!!

    I have a very strong feeling that B3 will be heavily centred around environmental problems and how to improve them - because the government needs to educate kids on these aspects.

    I don't think there will be much coverage in B3 on the body stuff as there were a lot of those last year and the year before. There will probably be more on environment stuff.

    I think the 6 marker will either be on osmosis or environment stuff.

    B2 I'm not even sure but again probably more stuff on the environment and less on body .

    4-6 mark questions on stuff like:
    - effects of deforestation
    - effects of global warming
    - methods to reduce these effects
    - how greenhouse gases result in global warming
    - biogas/biofuels; how the generators work
    - destruction of peat bogs

    As long as you've nailed these topics, you shouldn't have to worry a lot about - well at least not for the end of B3. I'd practise brainstorming all of these points.

    past papers are basically the best way to revise for aqa science because you can basically see what the examiner is looking for depending on how many marks the question is
