Look at biology in a new light young man -you will not only pass, you will excel - I promise you - check out the tactics in the links below which I use in my own students (numerous students of mine who were predicted Ds and Es have ended up with As and A*s)

No i am in my first year doing A-Level biology but have a mock exam at the end of the year. But i have been failing for most of the year and i like you have no idea where i am going wrong because i make so much notes and spend so much time looking over information but i just cant get any good grades.

I'd recommend CGP books- they have exactly the right detail and so close to the specification so super useful. The Oxford AQA books are useful if you really don't understand a topic (however they are a bit pricey just to use now and again!)

Try making flashcards/mindmaps to actually memorise the information, but first you need to understand the content. Try to do this by asking teachers, asking your friends or watching online videos. My favourite resource for biology has been the Tailored Tutors website, it's a paid thing but super useful- message me if you'd like the link to it
