Well what I did was all of b2 on Tuesday, all of c2 on Wednesday and all of p2 today. On the morning of the exam I will go through everything and check if I know it all. of you haven't done anything I think you should read though every topic and make notes and tomorrow you should read through everything again.

I'm in year 10, I think I have done the right revision as I have basically learnt the whole of the revision guide.

I found paper one ok for biology and chemistry, but the physics really hard adn only managed about three lines in the six mark question as I ran out of time.

If you're not feeling good about the syllabus make sure you do the data question as 10 marks there could move you up a grade for sure.

That's a good point for sure! I think that was what brought my grade up last year
There was a lot more maths involved wasn't there? I found physics very hard as well-hopefully I pick up marks on the other two sections!
Thank-you for your help

Paper two can always bring the marks up!
And yes I am, my coursework let me down and therefore have to now make it up for in my exams and at this rate in paper 2.
What grade is your coursework if you don't mind me asking?
And no not really, they just require a bit of maths and interpreting the data- quite easy to pick up the marks as they don't really involve any scientific knowledege

I had an A* in my coursework, only lost two marks. Coursework seems to be my forte as I am not so good at exams.

Just looking at all the past papers, do you have any idea of any of the possible six mark questions?

Thinking maybe electrolysis for chemistry.

Thanks, that has come up before I think but maybe adaptation could be a six marker(it tends to come up often) As they tend to repeat a lot of questions but just have different wording

Yeah, would that be about variation and adaptations being passed down in genes? Survival of the fittest? That sort of thing?

Yep, I think a six mark question came up about it last year so it probably won't come up again but it could be in the form of 3/2 marks and also how animals bodies are adapted to live in certain conditions etc
