Depends on you really;

People tend to find photosynthesis & respiration the hardest - as there is so much confusing stuff going on and you spend most of your time saying what the f*ck is going on.

Agreed! I am only in first year of A level biology but our teacher was going over respiration. It was just so technical and I was sitting there like... what the f is going on :0

Although this is A2 - there is not much that really stands out as difficult in AS probably trying to remember it all and get the marks in the exam I suppose.
Also the amount on organelles, it's so much

Not really - it mainly remembering and applying that you'll need to focus on. Although there is a topic on synapses, muscle contraction and homeostasis which is pretty content heavy.

Other than that it is a memory & past paper game.

Gr88. Legit everywhere is like, 'past papers are your best friends' but as bad as this sounds I just cannot be asked to sit down and do them. It's so much effort ! :eek:
