I know there are 3 exams for A2, the question is -what topics are on each of them? I had thought that all three would be a mix of AS and A2 content but someone told me today that paper 1 is AS, paper 2 is A2 and paper 3 is mixed with a synoptic essay. This seems sensible, I just wanted to make sure because on the exam board's page they haven't specified anything about each paper - just 1 2 3 (for example OCR chemistry is organic, inorganic, mixed but Bio has no clear title for each) ..rambling.. nice one.. any answers plz?

Hi I'm also doing biology. Paper 1 is all AS stuff/first year topics like biological molecules, exchange between organisms and environment etc.
Paper 2 is all A2 so things like respiration, gene expression, homeostasis and all second year stuff.
Paper 3 is all AS and A2 so anything could come up. Practical/experiment questions feature heavily in this paper but practical questions could appear in all 3 exams (although they are more common in paper 3) There is the synoptic essay in paper 3 too though.

Dreading these exams lol.
