    Hi, sorry for the late reply!

    Just been doing lots and lots of past papers at this moment, content has all been cemented (i think).

    How about you?

    Hiya, I am doing the same How are you revising from past papers? What marks are you getting on the specimens and the 2017?

    Hi all!

    Has anyone got any predictions as to what kind of topics could come up? My teacher has made separate predictions for each of the papers if anyone wants me to post them?

    Hello again!

    From a look at the papers i can almost guarantee the Heart and the Kidneys coming up!

    I've been doing the old spec papers and the BYB/BYA (very old spec papers) and just doing specimen now and some OCR ones. Have gotten around 70-80% on specimen's and got 201/258 on the 2017 one we did as a mock.

    Aiming for an A*, hopefully!

    Hello again!

    From a look at the papers i can almost guarantee the Heart and the Kidneys coming up!
    Hello! It's really good to hear from you again!

    Alright- here are my predictions. As paper 3 is a combination of both AS and A2 content, I don't have any specific predictions for what could come up on it.

    Paper 1;

    Calibration curves
    Biological molecules- specifically lipids
    Dilution series (e.g. calculation)
    Membrane structure (e.g. Fluid Mosaic Model)
    ELISA test and HIV
    Enzyme inhibitors
    DNA replication
    Ultracentrifugation
    Chromatography
    The immune system (T-Cells, monoclonal antibodies)
    Gas exchange (in fish, in humans)*
    Digestion (carbohydrates)
    Meiosis

    Paper 2;

    Anaerobic respiration
    Kidneys
    Changes in sarcomere length during contraction/relaxation
    Negative and positive feedback
    Secondary messenger model
    Sex linkage/dihybrid crosses
    Autosomal linkage
    Farming practices
    Eutrophication
    Nitrogen cycle
    Chi-squared
    Regulation of gene expression (methylation/acetylation)
    VNTRs and genetic fingerprinting


    * =questions that might be data analysis
    BOLD= very likely to appear in some context!

    JUST A REMINDER that these are only PREDICTIONS!

    If anyone has any predictions regarding which practicals might come up, please let me know!

    Wow that is amazing. I am aiming for an A* too but getting A's consistently in papers so hopefully I can push it up to an A* in the exam. Are you still going over the content or just past papers?

    Hey, thank you! Right now it is just past paper frenzy. I managed to get all content revised and sorted at the start of April and have been working away at papers every day like a machine.(I've killed about 100 trees! : )

    How about you?

    This is amazing! Did your teacher base their predictions on the topics which did/didnt come up last year? Or is this just the favourites that always come up?

    Thank you again! My teacher hasnt gone through any predictions. Im still reviewing some content, I was so busy with re-sits

    I'm glad you've found these useful!

    It's a little bit of both, really. My teacher took last years paper into consideration, as well as topics that come up time and time again (i.e. lipids/food tests).

    Is biology your first A2 exam, or do you have some before that?

    Me too, past papers and occasional content here and there Are you doing both old spec and new spec questions?

    How are you doing the past papers,are you just learning the mark schemes or going over the content for topics you got wrong?
