Hello everyone. I would love some advice with AQA Biology ( the hardest exam board for biology, no question). Please tell me how you did in each unit and tell me what books you used to revise with, did you take notes, did you do all the current spec past papers and the old spec past papers, did you do the questions in the books you used, did you do any other questions other than past paper questions? Please could you be specific. I really need some help, I really appreciate it!

I spent more time doing questions and used the pdf notes on TSR (didn't like the textbooks, though I do recommend the CGP books)

I focused on separate topics per week and did topic based past paper questions (you can get it from sciencemathsmaster.weebly.com). You could also put your topic name on Youtube and watch tutorials (which are very helpful). Also use quizlet to make flashcards.

Hey! If you get the AQA biology revision guide, I have found that to be really good, highlight as you go because it makes sure you're paying attention and is easier to revise from later. Flash cards are always great. Colour coding is something that is proven to be useful and time table revision and fun to get organised!

Is the book you used for AS and A2? ( And of course the A2 is different but was the same brand)

Also did you do any other questions other than past paper questions, like did you do the questions in the book you used, like the green and red ones and the end of chapter questions.
