    Okay so I'm taking my AS Bio exams this year and I need some last minute tips :') other than making notes for every topic + doing textbook qs and past papers any other advice on how to revise effectively? especially this close to the exam. Also any websites one can find an exam q/past paper q for each topic?? Is it worth writing down questionsand answers on q cards for every topic?

    Looking at past papers for your exam will give you a good idea of what type of questions can appear in your exam. Comparing your answers to the mark scheme of past papers gives can help you improve your answers and help give you better exam technique.

    In terms of studying the wrong topics, you can go on the exam board website and look at the specification to see the exact type of topics which could come up in your exam. Also, you may be able to notice a trend in the types of topics or questions that regularly come up in the exam.

    There are past paper resources available on the TSR forums, there are also biology revision resources on this thread: http://www.thestudentroom.co.uk/show....php?t=1374364
