Hello,

I have created this thread to allow people to share any useful resources for biology. This thread can be used by anyone doing any course as they will all have some overlap (Although I will mainly post resources for Edexcel SNAB)

The aim of this group is to allow people to revise for their biology exams and ask questions/share resources with each other

If you prefer to look at my resources on The Student room, I have websites on all AS and A2 biology except the last topic of A2 being 'The control of gene expression' as I am still working on it. Sorry for any inconvenience made. The websites are found on here in the forum 'Be a web legend and win a MacBook air'

What is spermatogenesis and oogenesis???
I don't remember this very well as it was only needed to know in my spec as like extra knowledge. Both are pretty much the same but for sperm and ovum respectively. Its maturation and meiosis to form the gamete. Cant rememberthe names of the cells that it started with to form the gamete.

I never made notes. Do every past paper 2 times dont spend time doing notes use it for doing all papers 3 times. You'll get A doing that.. Everyone who makes notes does not know how to apply the knowledge so they end up 'under performing'.

Maybe it will work for your new specification but for me those who did notes and only a few papers just thought they knew and understood it all but if i give them a tricky question they crumble. Just do every paper a billion times lol. Seriously it is the best way for A-A*

each topic for unit 3 have equal rating so you wont know unless you look at previous years topics. e.g if last year it was on biodiversity it probs wont be a second year in a row. So look at the trend of previous topics and then it might give a hint on the few that are more likely. And for unit 1 and 2, well its Maynow so you would have finished your course in lessons with your teacher. Meaning you should know the whole course briefly. e.g if i asked about mitosis you should know what it is and the steps. Maybe not all the details of every step but at least 50% of each step. That's enough to do papers. Don't do the papers and look at your grade just do the exam without any help and if you dont know the answer to a question leave it blank and the ones you know e.g a 5 marker on mitosis. Answer it at ur best knowledge,then fill in your gaps, maybe you got 3/5 and mark schemes always have like 6 possible marks for a 5 mark etc. So learn all 6 coz the book will only mention 4-5 of those points and the last 1 comes from other sources ect. This gives you deeper pool of answers for a topic. When you mark it write all over your paper the correction. Then when you go to sleep read over the past paper with your corrections. This is kind of like taking notes but the notes are more useful and are phrased correctly. You might make notes from a book but actualy reword it in a way which makes it wrong. So just do the papers and learn from the mistakes in the papers. You don't want to be exposed to few papers because when you get into the exam this is what happens. People think that mitosis only has 4-5 points. So when they write them down they assume "ah i got 5 in that" and i used ot be there thinking nah mate you got 3 coz you did not know about that final point. That is the difference between those who get C's and B's to those who get the A +.
If you need me to explain more i can i wrote too much to be bothered to reword some of what i said.

It might sound a bit rude on how i say it but i don't want people doing worse than they thought they would get. By doing allthe papers. You will know the answers exactly word for word, this way you have no excuse and the highest chanceof smashing it GL
