    i don't see the harm in remembering essays? (i don't do bio) Surely you could just keep like a copy and adjust and make it better and remember it?

    The Problem is that there are too many essays to memorise and they try to spin the question a lot of different ways. its risky

    if the essay you memorise comes up youl be laughing but its unlikely. I reckon I could memoirse about 20 but even then it might all go to waste i might be better off just slowly revising each topic

    However, this strategy does work for my other subject Government and Polticis

    Revise topics which can be used in numerous essays first, such as respiration and muscle contraction, both of which can be used on essay questions involving energy or cycles etc.
    I'd recommend checking past papers for the most common essay questions as some come up more than one, with similar wording.
