Hi, in the specification for the iGCSE Biology Edexcel, there are points such as
2.11 describe experiments to investigate how enzyme activity can be affected by changes in temperature.
Will we ever have to answer questions such as:
Describe an experiment to show how enzyme activity is changed by a change in temperature. (With no prior diagrams, data etc).
Just wondering so I know whether I have to memorize all these experiments.
Thanks.

I would interpret that as you could be asked to design an experiment using the theory that you know for example with enzymes, low activity in cold, high activity at optimum temp, denature at high temp. Therefore say you would measure activity over a range of temperatures.
I don't think you would need to memorize each experiment word for word but just know the theory and have an idea how you would apply this to do an experiment.
Its not going to be super complicated as its only GCSE

As long as you know the general idea of the experiment, you should be fine
