Hey! I'm a year 12 student currently studying both OCR Biology and Chemistry. Usually to revise you get spammed with numerous people telling you to do past papers... But for the new sciences you can't because the course has changed.... So my question to you is how should I revise efficiently? I guess I could wait to the end of the year to see the style of AS exams as they will look like the A2 ones? Any advice is welcomed

Regards
Luke

I'm doing the new OCR Biology and AQA physics courses and all of my teachers have said that the specimen papers aren't helpful because they're never like the actual exams. All of the tests we've had so far have been based on the old courses, for physics and chemistry they haven't changed that much so you should be okay doing the past papers. As for Biology I'm going to be looking at all of the questions in the textbook. I'm still going to look at past papers for the old spec but your teachers might have some useful resources for you if you ask.
