Edexcel B Biology Watch

    hey Guys, I hope you are all well, I have just finished my first year of a levels and as the exams are only linear I have just done my AS mocks and I did well in my other mocks and got Bs but in Biology I got an E and I feel terrible because I revised so much and my hard work never paid off and I just dont know what i am doing wrong. I wanted to do medicine but I have lowered those aspirations and decided on taking an alternative route. Is there any advice you could give me to improve my biology because I do want to do well in Biology but getting from an E to an A/B seems impossible. Could you please be able to give me any tips guys x Thank You

    Base all your revision around the spec points. Literally structure your revision so that each section is complying to the spec points. This helps you to filter out the waffle you get in textbooks that you don't need and so that brain storage can be used to learn 100% according to the specification.
