Here is a practice paper for Combined Science Higher Biology Paper 1. This is an invaluable resource prior to the exam on 15/5/18.

The lack of papers is evident so here is one to get your teeth into.

There is a mark scheme and grade boundaries included as well for your help.

The paper is out of 70 and I would appreciate any feedback. If it is positive, I will create more free papers.

Good feedback will be the grade you achieved and how easy/hard it was for you.

Enjoy and happy revising.

Not yet but this will still be good practice. If I get helpful feedback, I'll make a triple version.

This is excellent man, you should definitely create more if you can as it’s highly beneficial to many of us. Btw, are these grades boundaries accurate coz I got 41/75 and in my mock at school I got that and ended up with a grade 5 lmao

Thank you so much for the feedback! If you don't mind me asking, how many marks did you get on this paper? I am happy to create a few more before Tuesday, hopefully 2 more papers and some Chemistry, Physics and Biology Paper 2 papers.

The grade boundaries are guesses so just take them with a pinch of salt.

By the way, on recent practice papers, AQA have got rid of the line where they tell you which questions need good English.
