Hey, I was wondering if anybody was able to explain how to actually use the specification to figure out what I do need to know or not.
The first piece of 'content' to know is:
"The variety of life, both past and present, is extensive, but the biochemical basis of life is similar for all living things," which I feel does not make any sense to me at all, the way it is worded is very different to how the GCSE Spec was worded since that was straight forward

Under each section there is a table that says 'content' and 'Opportunities for skills development'. Make sure you understand the content in the table and the skills (and how to apply them).


I used to use the spec and CGP revision guide. For almost all the sentences on the spec content there is a small paragraph which explains it in the revision guide.

Hope this helps
