    Only been revising for about 2 days so far! I have 3 full days after English before Biology exam, so planning on doing some intense revision for those three days! How are you feeling about it? Unit 2 scares me the most!

    Biology is a hard subject! I've been to numerous extra revision classes with my teacher and I'm getting there. Hoping to achieve an A grade but not sure about that! Unit 2 is a killer. I've predominantly used the online E textbook. It's a really good revision source as it goes into detail in each topic and even has mini tests at the end!

    It's my next exam

    I really like all my units, but I'm strongest at Unit 3 and weakest at Unit 1. I was two marks away from an A in the prelim, so I'm hoping to be more successful this time and get a secure A!

    Unit 1, I love. Unit 2, not particularly challenging as it's mostly knowledge. Unit 3, all knowledge and so boring that I just hate it. It's also where all the yucky problem-solving questions are derived from.

    Anyway, I got 85% in my prelim and the same again in my post-prelim, haha. So I'm hoping to remain consistent and at least achieve the same.

    If anyone has any queries about Unit 2, or 1, I'm happy to try and explain it to you. Best of luck to you all!

    I am also doing nat 5 biology on Monday. I have today tomorrow and Sunday to focus on it completely and have all the notes necessary but for some reason none of the information goes in and I have such little time to try to remember it 😭😭😭 I have tried past papers but struggle too much to do them effectively, does anyone have any tips???? Please
