    All I seem to be revising is biology! It's getting on my nerves. I've revised 2a so far I think I'm going to take a break from it now and start on physics

    I'm feeling confident for biology(not yet) but I will I think as it's one of my favourite subjects. The whole hormones and nerves topic is annoying tho and osmosis

    I did my Biology last year. The B3 Exam was really easy so lots of people did well leading to higher grade boundaries. For some reason i found B1 the hardest lol.

    How is your revision? What do you think would come up?
    Revision is going okay so far! Need to revise more but then there's a whole month for B1..

    For B1, 1 question from every topic must come up. I just hope none of the science exams or most of them don't end up having 8 questions or more otherwise that many in the time limit (even though its still 60 marks in 60 mins), gets tough!
    I think the 6 marker this year might be on Drugs (I don't think there's been one on that) or perhaps the menstrual cycle topic as the nervous system has happened. A 6 marker for the genetics topic or even evolution could come equally come up.

    Adapatations 6 marker has already happened, I don't think they can do much for the 6 marker on the first topic of diet and disease and the carbon cycle topic with decay are normally up to 4 markers.

    But then again exam boards are kinda lazy (but u can't blame them for recycling questions all the time since they're running out of ways and scenarios to put questions in), they're gunna shove a load of tables/graphs/how science works questions in and the 6 marker could be about explaining/comparing data?

    Let's see..

    Did you see aqa's p3 and c3 last year? They basically gave up on q's? They gave the most out of the blue and ridicule 6markers that all my friends, who got a*'s, literally only obtained 3 marks out of. P3 was a repetition of q but it was hard. Expect the worst!!
