    Hi there guys,

    I've been looking for different exam questions for the new specification AQA Biology A-level course, and I can't seem to find anything. Therefore, I've decided compile together every single exam question on A-Level Biology that (I think) exists. With this, you and I will be able to tackle even the hardest questions possible, because these questions are very hard.
    Linked to this thread is my Google Drive account with many sub-folders full of exam questions. I've estimated at the amount of questions to be over 1000 (no DBZ jokes pls).
    These questions go as far back as 2004 with the June exam paper. They also have specialist papers for individual topics. Also, do remember that I had picked all the hardest questions that I could find and put them all together in the one Drive account. These questions are for the AQA specification, but included OCR and Edexcel questions. Do try them, even if you don't do AQA.

    Here is a quick breakdown of what is on the drive account;

    "Loads of Questions" - Over 500 questions (very hard) on individual topics, some never seen before (with Mark Schemes). Speical credit to "Scienceisgood" (Sourced: https://www.thestudentroom.co.uk/showthread.php?t=2176162)

    "Past Papers 2004-2008" - Includes exam papers from as far back as 2004 (never seen) (with Mark Schemes). Speical credit to "Scienceisgood"
    (Sourced: https://www.thestudentroom.co.uk/sho....php?t=2176162)

    "Past Papers 2010-2015" - Includes exam papers between 2010 and 2015 in one easy to reach location. (with Mark Schemes). (Sourced: AQA)

    "Past Papers 2016" - Includes Edexcel 2016 past papers. (with Mark Schemes)

    "Specialist Papers" - A compilation of topic-divided questions made by my Biology Teacher. (Remember! These include the Mark Scheme within the question papers at the end of the questions).

    So lads, give a try at them and see whetheror not you can tackle them. They are hard, so take your time when doing them.

    Take care, and good luck for your exams.

    Great if you have done all New spec papers and specimen papers. Perhaps also good for reinforcing newly learnt knowledge. The more you do the better right

    I got an A in Biology just from doing past papers, trust me they'll help you significantly. A lot of the content is repeated between old and new spec, so it should help. If I can get an A, you definitely can too.

    Are there any specialist papers your teacher made for the year 1 AS course? Or a folder on the driver for them? Thanks!

    Since we were the first year doing the AS course, my teacher had no idea what the content was going to be like and how the questions were going to be asked. Therefore, I have no specialist papers for AS Biology.
    I suggest trying the specimen papers that they provide (there are two of them) and the two actual AS papers that have been done.
    Also, I now go to university, so I am unable to login to check for papers.
    Good luck!
