    Yes, unfortunately 😦
    Goodluck! I hope that you do well. I am doing A2 at the moment but I am also retaking 2 of my units (empa and unit 2). All I would say is go onto the 'physicsandmathstutor' website and visit the biology section. There you would find all the past paper questions by topic. So do the questions of the topics you are really struggling on and MEMORISE THE MARKSCHEME (I am doing AQA but I am pretty sure it's the same with the other boards)! This is one thing I didn't do last year. Biology is about memorising BUT it's mostly about the exam technique, the key phrases you have to mention to pick up the marks.
    Actually there's another website 'vbio' where there are interactive powerpoints on the specific topics from the textbook. It's useful if you want to make notes.

    Hi I'm retaking AQA AS biology alongside A2 and I think I've got the hang of it now! Started revising unit 1 around 2 months ago, solidly doing past papers now and I must say, I've completely got the hang of it! All due to past papers though, didn't do a single one last year...got an E...need a B for my uni course
