    My problem is that i always struggle answering questions in Biology. I know the content but as soon as I get a question I never know how to answer it to get full marks. Any advice?

    what kind of questions do you have trouble with the essay ones where you describe and explain or the analytical ones.
    i suggest you practise writing notes, use biological terms to describe, my teacher calls them power words

    Maybe you should try this:

    1. What: Explain what is asked on the question by writing the definition and then using your own words to say the same thing in other way. e.g what is photosyntesis?
    2. How: This is something you can tell if you have a topic which includes prosses. Like for instance photosyntesis, you tell how it works.
    3. Where: In this case, you can say where the photosyntesis is done (kloroplasts).
    4. Why: To get a good mark you have to tell why that you are dealing with is essential. Photosyntesis is very important for all living things on earth.

    When you have saud all of this I have included, you can state your own opinions if it is required, and always use many biological terms and remember to explain them when using.

    Good luck, I am wishing you all the best!
