As silly as it may seem , enzymes are a pain in the ass for me

not because it's hard to understand them but because of all the vocabulary you have to use in past paper questions , but i still understand the concept of it all

I'm currently doing EdExcel Biology B at A level and it's such a hard exam board and the AS papers are so hard that we're switching to EdExcel Biology A midway through year 12 because supposedly it's far easier to understand the questions it's asking you. However in the Biology B spec, what I've found hardest so far is all of the maths questions in the exams (I'm not a talented mathematician and barely got an A at GCSE) and also a lot of the stuff on Meiosis and Gametogenesis of animals and plants.

Hardest Topic: Probably the A2 ecology stuff cause of all the terms and not to mention it is mind numbingly boring. The heart stuff from AS also confuses me but I generally manage to bluff it lmao.

I am doing OCR A and for me the hardest topic has been transport in plants. For me i find plants to be HORRIBLE and its probably due to my lack of motivation and enthusiasm but i am not a fan of transport in plants.

I've just started biology a level, and we're doing bio-chemistry right now. Stuff like polysaccharides, proteins, molecular structures, hydrolysis and condensation reactions, types of bonds - it's really really tough stuff.

I know this is late but I'm currently doing GCSE and by far the hardest topic is Protein Synthesis and it gets harder so that is probably incredibly hard in a level as well is is a grade 9 GCSE topic

None of them? It’s the exam technique for me 🤢😭
But generally the more boring the topic (genetic technology related stuff, anything to do with ecology 🥱), the harder it is for me to remember everything... 🤷*♀️
