    Hiya! Did my core last year and got an A in all three units
    top tips
    - ANNOTATE UNITS for the physics equations sheet as soon as you get in the exam
    - flick through the paper before you begin it, see if you can attempt the 6 mark question first or do any 3/2 mark questions that you are confident in
    - often when the question asks to give 'reasons' put down several as they will mark the correct ones and its better to have many than just one
    - remember most questions are worded weirdly but always involve application of processes so whenever you get stuck, always think of a process that may link to it
    - for data interpretation, explain the data explicitly and what you can visibly see, and then apply particular processes to the data if they apply
    - lastly, always look at the back page to see if there are questions because my whole year didn't last year and we lost 6 marks on the last page as noone knew their were questions
    - when you flick through the paper, if you see ALOT of data interpretation questions, take into consideration time management greatly as it is these which take up the most time - i ran out of time in my bio exam last year as it was MAINLY ALL data questions
