    Hey everyone!
    I'm giving my Paper 2 CIE AS Level Biology exam tomorrow and I would love it if you could give me tips on how to prep for it?

    I've done a couple of past papers, but that is not enough.

    Please do help.
    Thanks.

    I've got it tomorrow as well! I'm so nervous. I've been doing past papers and making notes on stuff I didn't know. What throws me off are the random three marker 'stimulus' questions on stuff we haven't done explicitly before. I think just past papers and the new specimen paper will be enough. What grade are you aiming for?

    I'm nervous as well! I did a few past papers and basically studied from notes I had made during my Mock examinations. I tried the specimen paper and it knocked me off my feet! It was pretty okay!

    I'm aiming for an A.
    Best of luck and I hope you ace it!

    The specimen is really hard. The stuff on cell signalling really confuses me, and I didn't get a good grade in my mocks so really need to catch up. I'm aiming for an A as well!
    Thank you so much, I hope you do too!
    How much have you done on Vmax and Km??

    I found the cell signalling tough as well.
    Haven't done much on Vmax and Kmax in class. Our teacher just explained it to us. Do you need any help?

    I think I'm okay on the other stuff apart from oxygen dissociation which kills me every time, but yeah neither have I, our teacher hardly told us about it, and since it's new it will probably come up. What's the definition of Vmax and how do you work out what Vmax and Km are if given a graph? I'm so stuck!

    I was so annoyed none of the easier topics came up! I think I did 21, and there was nothing on infection, the heart or enzymes, so frustrating!! How is everyone revising for the practical?

    We did a visking tubing experiment, does anyone know the causes of error and improvements to the visking tubing with glucose/starch diffusion investigation?
