    I'm resitting it whilst in A2, Go through the spec. It's what I did last year in the last two days and got a C. Not the best grade but if you go through it now, you should be fine! I don't know how to use flashcards for biology but I want to use them if you get what I mean!

    Split it up into very small chunks. Learn each small chunk on its own and then try and work up to bigger sections. (e.g. learn each organelle, it's shape, function, structure and then once you haven't learnt them all test yourself on all of them).

    I also advice you practice all the papers so you get a feel for the questions, especially the application of knowledge ones. Then go through with the mark scheme seeing what you don't know (or rather why you got questions wrong, for example if you struggle with wording) and then only revise things that you got wrong.

    What is the main problem do you find? The content being hard, trying to remember it all or exam technique?

    Flashcards are helpful when learning the terminology they require but past papers are the way forward as long as you learnt the content, like I'm pretty sure my book never told me about compartmentation until I started past papers hahah

    Then definitely split it into small chunks and do as many papers as possible because i bet you know more than you think, its working out what you don't know that's important.
