How to answer biology exam question in the right manner? watch

    • Thread Starter

    I'm currently stuidying A2 biology , although i didn't achieve what i wanted at as and coming out with a dissapointing D.Learning the content however wasn't my issue .I feel like the way i answered the exam questions wasn't correct. I would appreciate it if someone was able to give me some advice on how to maximise my marks in the exam and how i know i'm answering a question right ? Despite learning the mark scheme i was still unable to get the marks due to new questions being introduced. It's been a real confidence knock down and i feel really demotivated . Please is anyone able to giveme some sort of advice would really appreciate it thank you.

    Mark your past papers and see the mark scheme for what the examiners specifically want and note this down. Annotate your past papers.
    Also look through the specification and note down any specific words they put (usually in bold)

    I feel the education system is sometimes flawed with these specifics, when your content may be right but if it isn't in the mark scheme it won't be accepted :/
    Good luck!
