Hi, Just wondered who else is taking the Biology Paper 6 on Wednesday (2 days time) and shortly after that, all the other Science Paper 6 papers. Message back if you want to ask a question for others to answer, or if you want to share vital information for others reading the thread, panicking the day before the exam! There is a good thread for the Biology Paper 6 in 2013 but I think it is time to make a more up to date version. I'm looking forward to hearing from you; good luck everyone!

Pages 16-30 are very useful in this document for physics: http://www.cie.org.uk/images/167041-...8-syllabus.pdf

The same thing is available in Biology and Chemistry. Everything in the updated syllabus is there. Also, the biology course is bigger than the physics and chemistry course combined, so it may be worth looking at that. Good luck for the alternative to practical on Thursday, but this paper doesn't need that much revision, other than doing lots of past papers.

Up to date stuff - for this year, for the first time, they have introduced a plan section instead of one of the physics practicals.

Previous years - 4 practicals, each 10 marks, each 20 mins (I think 20 mins)

This year - 3 practicals, each 11 marks, a plan section for 7 marks, each 20 mins

Yeah still out of 40 (11 x 3 = 33 + 7, which is 40)

We got told that we had 20 mins per section, in 4 different rooms, so it's actually 1hr 20 mins. But if it's 1 hour, then is it 15mins per section? I doubt it, but I am not 100% sure that it is 20 mins per section.

How did everyone find the Biology Paper 41 (Extended) and the Biology Paper 2 (extended)? I thought that the paper 2 was easy, however, I find it hard to describe the paper 4 without using expletives! What did you guys think???

Paper 2 Bio was easy I agree, But for paper 4 I am angry at cie for including such weird questions! I revised for the whole syllabus, and only like 40 percent came up. But nevermind
How are you guys preparing for chemistry?
