    Any tips on how to tackle the beast? The questions seem to be so synoptic, including things from unit 1 *sigh*

    Past papers, and keep practising your synoptic essays. You should have a little recap of Unit 1 + 2 to help you with that. I particularly found past papers helpful. There are quite a few questions that continue to come up so looking at the mark scheme will give you a good idea on how to answer them.

    Id just make notes from the textbook first. Then do all summary questions and exam style questions. Then move onto past papers, learn the style of the questions by using the mark scheme. If you can get hold of mark schemes with examiners notes on them they are also very useful as they almost always highlight common misconceptions students make. As for the synoptic essay, look over AS biology as said above and keep doing practice essays. Also look at model essays so you can see how a high level answer is written.
