    (Info in this thread follows the 2008 specification)


    rules:
    1. Don't discuss the 2015 papers on this thread until April when mostly everyone has done their mocks.

    2. Please try to not go off on a tangent in your conversations, everything should be STRICTLY BIOLOGY-related here!

    Hey! Idk if this is the official one but how do you guys make notes for biology, I write like specific bits and stuff but not sure how to lay stuff out etc. I know diagrams work for me and I've draw a few for like the heart for topic1 (resitting) and topic 7. One other thing I don't get is what to highlight lmao

    No lol? I'm doing the 2008 specification. 6BI04-6BI05 is the 2008 spec.

    The first new spec assessment is for AS exams in 2016. I specifically stated A2 in my thread title.

    okay lol, 8BI01-9BI01 represents the whole speciation but 6BI04 represnts the paper reference code for this specification therefore we're both correct!

    Since I have made a thread before, what do you think of either splitting units or combining the two threads ?

    It would be in both our best interests to join them. How do you merge threads? I don't want it to be confusing for people.

    I'm retaking both units even though I got an A and B because every UMS counts and I have a dirty feeling that I'm not going to do that well in A2 :/

    SAME!!! A2 is looking like a pain. (dont even get me started on unit 5)
    just maximise AS and you'll be fine for an A hopefully!

    Unit 1 is arguably the hardest paper out of the 2. IMO but it has really buff links with A2/
