The Current State of GcseWatch
If you look at AQA Science, especially additional science for biology, you have to remember a whole lot of s*** about the digestive system and names of enzymes.
I believe it is like this for other subjects where they focus on width and not depth. The only subject which doesn't need that much memory is Maths, apart from remebering formauls
This is obviously means that students can get away with remembering with basic application to get an A*, however the smarter students who be recognized because of the stupid system.
