    OK, so I do psychology, statistics, chemistry and psychology at AS.

    I can do psychology, chemistry and statistics perfectly fine but with biology, it's just not in my spectra of knowledge. I understand it fine, but when it comes to applying into AO2 and AO3 questions I have no idea, unlike chemistry.

    In Psychology, I have found an easy way to revise which is simply to do an essay on each topic and then create a mind map with the essay to remember key studies - phrases.

    In statistics, it's simply past paper questions.

    I would like some advice on how to effectively revise chemistry, at the moment it is just revision cards and mind maps.

    In biology, I have no idea how to revise. Biology was my worst grade at my mocks (E) and I have no intention in doing it at A2 anymore simply because I have the worst teacher, even she gets wrong and confused with the theories and questions which just confuses my class more.

    Is there anyway I can save my biology grade and get a decent one? (C would be acceptable. I feel it's beyond saving at this point). also, help in how to effectively revise chemistry.

    Thank you for reading my dilemma

    For both Chemistry and Biology just answer the questions in the past papers and mark them. Do this for all of them and then re do them all. Usually the exams have a set way of how they want things answered which is usually the same in each one but obviously tailoring it to the questions.
