    for the experiment questions i would say just make sure you have notes for each of the 12 pags and make sure past questions are all completed if that is already done then from the other specs. aqa have similar questions which may be useful.

    Yeah I did but they didn't want to download each of the answers and send them all to me. Thanks for the suggestion though.

    I'm glad someone else does...I always feel so dumb when I can't answer the questions (there are a few which are standard and I can answer but the vast majority are wild af) So far we've covered all chapters except Chapter 17 - Energy for biological processes & Chapter 18 - Respiration

    I have mocks next week and I wanted to do the questions in the book as extra prep to check understanding but I always struggle with them.

    For example when I was doing the questions from Chapter 19, one of the questions was really synoptic and you would only know the answer if you had done Chapter 21...Although I have covered it, the Summary and End of Topic questions are never specific to the topic and often ask weird obscure things or ask things that link to later on in the course.

    Yh ikr but the practice questions at the end of each chapter are not so bad they’re a mixture between real exam questions and ones they’ve made up. You can always do the past papers from old spec tho if you haven’t finished them all yet.
