For a single Biology chapter, I have 32 pages of notes.
I can't remember everything on 32 pages of notes! But I don't want too get rid of anything that I will need in the exam. I've also repeated myself with simple definitions, and more complex definitions with more information. I just don't know which bits to get rid of because I'm paranoid I miss out something fairly important.
How can I condense my notes and ensure that I still have the relevant information to do well in the exam? (Aiming for a fairly high A in the AS-Level exams).

I find it helpful to write them all down on flashcards rather than having pages of notes and then I can keep testing myself. Have a look at the specification to see which bits are relevant and anything that isn't relevant don't write down. However, sometimes the specification can be vague, so if in doubt, just write it down anyway. Also you don't have to write in full sentences, as long as you can understand what you've written.
