"Trioses: (e.g. glyceraldehydes), intermediates in respiration and photosynthesis.

Tetroses: rare.

Pentoses: (e.g. ribose, ribulose), used in the synthesis of nucleic acids (RNA and DNA), co-enzymes (NAD, NADP, FAD) and ATP.

Hexoses: (e.g. glucose, fructose), used as a source of energy in respiration and as building blocks for larger molecules.

All but one carbon atom have an alcohol (OH) group attached. The remaining carbon atom has an aldehyde or ketone group attached."

Check your exam boards specification, from their website; this information is something that's good to know and helps build a deeper understanding on other things.

I just checked AQA's specification.. it seems really vague and doesn't mentin much about ANY topic - I can't imagine that the specification is just what we need to learn.

The specification just tells you what you could be tested on, if its not mentioned then you won't be asked about it. I'm doing OCR myself so I have no idea if you need to know it. It's best to ask your teacher.
