    How are you finding the work load? I have to say I am struggling with the amount of content for this subject! Really worried about doing Biology at A2

    I'm exactly the same. We haven't finished topic 4 yet and I'm scared we're not gonna have enough time for revision. Theres legit so much to learn, but I've been going through lots of past papers so I guess that's helping. What are your revision techniques? Our teacher recommended learning the points straight from the syllabus and making notes around them, but there's so much content. I'm doing A2 as well and this first years pretty off-putting haha, what else are you doing next year?

    Yeah Biology is very overwhelming tbh! Feels like there isn't enough time in the day. I've read through the whole Edexcel endorsed text book and made notes but have like 100 pages worth! I've also tried to condense my notes onto flashcards which closely follows the syllabus "checklist" but am having trouble remembering everything! I've only done like 1 past paper for each unit (1&2) and really struggled with it! I forgot to mention that I'm self-teaching this subject and am having doubts whether I actually want to continue with it at A2
