    Ah no, I took aqa AS biology last year and doing A2 this year.

    What I did when I made my flashcards was give myself a limit so I would tell myself I was only allowed to write X sides for topic Y, so i knew I could only write down the really important stuff down

    Honestly it doesn't matter how many pages of notes you have, as long as you know the content of what you have then it should be fine!

    Notes after notes after notes! How i do it is write notes on file paper, then condense to flash cards. Learn the material from the flash cards, and test yourself by drawing mind maps! Mind maps are so helpful! Plenty of colour and diagrams, no long sentences with only key terms! Just prompts to help sentence starters. Always do past papers as well, it helps with revision a lot because you know what to expect on the exam. Read examiners reports as well, they help so much with the longer style questions and give tips as to what you should include in your answers which you may have missed in your notes also!
    Hope this helps
