These exams are AS.

I am a private candidate for both of these exams and am getting confused about the layout.

Will the first paper contain multiple choice questions or not? Has the layout changed?
Does anyone have access to the 2017 papers?

If anyone is doing these exams, how is revision going and what are you finding to be useful?

For Chemistry Revision is fine. Literally past papers old spec and new spec will prepare you. I made predictions on what might come up in one of my posts if you click my profile and check my posts you might see it. Biology im stressing. So much context. Biology Literally anything can come up.

I reckon you're right about the topics because I haven't seen much coverage of them. Biology literally just has too much content, Chemistry is okay but I'm going to start past papers from tomorrow. Is there anything else you're doing?
I'm trying to get through some pieces of Biology done by tonight.

Wow I feel for you, balancing those three together is going to be a challenge but I'm sure you'll make it work. Good luck for Maths!
I just have Biology and Chemistry to revise for but I still think all the revision in the world won't be enough.

Have your school given you any resources for Biology or Chemistry.

Well no, I haven't gotten any past papers and my private teacher is saying he doesn't have access to them.
I'm just using the OCR book and guide they are helpful, so is physicsandmathstutor how about you?
