    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.

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:
