Hi there!
I am REALLY scared about the 2016 exams, especially for Biology, Chemistry and Physics! Could anyone out there please remind me of any common topics that are assessed every ear for these topics? I am doing AQA... all units!
PLEASE reply back ASAP!
Thanks

Quick tip because I see you're new in town: you see the orange buttons at the bottom right of my post? If you use the one with the speechmarks it allows you to quote people, like I am now. It just means the person/people you are responding to get a notification that you've responded

I assume this is GCSE? I did Edexcel but I should be able to help with physics question and possibly some chemistry

I'm looking to get a grade A, possibly an A*.
I recommend getting the CGP revision guide for each.

Look through as many past papers you can get a hold of, you'll notice a pattern of similar topics and questions. Write them down. Then check the mark schemes for those questions and write down the answers, so you know what to write to get full marks in the future.

In B2, geographical isolation tends to come up quite a lot. Mendel&his peas experiment (genes), drug testing, how fossils are formed, function of the kidney (if doing B3), carbon cycle, analysing&comparing graphs, measuring distribution (technique), magnification.. that's all I can remember
I'd really recommend the AQA revision guides..they really helped my for the 2015 exams!
All the best

Just putting all 3 AQA unit topics in one here...structure of the earth, hard water/soft water (adv/diasadv and how to soften hardwater), the early periodic table, uses of esters (ethyl ethanoate), drawing the structure of ethyl ethanoate&ethanoic acid, fractional distillation, types of bonding (remember to mention intermolecular/electromagnetic forces etc), the limestone cycle, analysing data (e.g. Being able to tell when a reaction is fully complete from data), key definitions, empirical formula, reactivity series, types of reactions (what they produce, e.g acid+base->salt+water and being able to apply this), EQUILIBRIUM&the Haber process (quite a hard topic to get your head around but once you've got it you should be fine!), flame tests for ions, titration calculations, bond energy calculations.
^ that's just a list of the bunch of topics I vaguely remember answering questions about (bare in min many might be one marker topics too)..I'm pretty sure loads more topic came up than I've listen, and some may not even come up lool. I'd still recommend learning everything because it's not always helpful to solely rely on a topic list!
All the best!
