    AQA New spec is definitely hard because there is so much content plus it's all exam. Even my teachers said that the exam was really hard.. But at the end of the day, it's down to yourself. I used to get As, Bs and Cs in my class tests and got a (high) D in AS Bio. It is really interesting though.

    Last year for AS I made flashcards with key bits of info on, diagrams and definitions and got people to test me with them - other people write questions on them as a prompt to remember the information.
    I also practiced papers, obviously when you're still learning content just miss out the questions you haven't learnt yet - I went over the topics I got wrong and did the paper again a week later.

    Everyone has a different way of approaching biology revision as there is a lot of content to learn! I got a B in AS and I'm hoping to do better in A2! ☺️
