I will be starting a level biology in september (if gcse results day goes to plan)
Having done the double award this year, I am very worried I will really struggle with the alevel, does anyone have any tips or advice, I believe I will be doing OCR

Spend a free period a week revising and going over what you've done that week, make awesome revision cards and don't fall behind.

I did this and got an A (don't know my raw mark yet) so it works. I did AQA like, but principle is the same

I did Triple award science in Y11 and also studied A-Level Biology. The content in Triple did not help me at all - you won't be disadvantaged for doing double award.

Make sure you use the specification, mark schemes, question papers and examiner's reports to the fullest extent.

Bascially the above along with concise notes from endorsed textbook and CGP guide.

I did OCR as well.

I'm doing OCR too definitely use the specification, make flash cards & do as many past papers as possible! Also, see if your school can gain access to ZigZag resources as they are very useful!
