    So here are some resources I found online:

    Past papers:
    http://www.physicsandmathstutor.com/...dexcel-unit-2/

    Good notes with exam pointers and topical questions:
    http://www.physicsandmathstutor.com/...el-ial/unit-2/

    A 3 part video series on frequently asked questions in the exam:
    https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=Ld8qJbBsj7g

    We technically have 8 full days to prepare, so I'm just planning to read through the textbook, print out the notes/topical papers from the above link and do some past papers.

    Also, one tip I found helpful was to go through the specification and tick off topics as you revise them to make sure you've covered everything.

    Any predictions, guys?

    Hey! Thanks so much for the links, will definitely check them out! Yep i'm just planning to read through the textbook and my notes, do some past papers and read through the unit two experiments. I haven't done many so i'm not sure about predictions but i think topic 3 is a big one. From topic 4 they normally like to ask about selection and not so much about 4.2 (the wood, plastic etc) but i'd still revise everything! I'd say going through the spec is a great idea just to make sure you're covering everything. Good luck guys!!

    Try to as much as past papers as you can. I know it's stressful to do bio past papers specially with the amount of writing needed per question but trust me it's gonna be worth it because in bio, every past paper is more or less of a repeat with a twist to the questions. Even if you can't answer all , just go through every past paper and try to answer it mentally. If you find something that ur stuck with, study the mark scheme answer and make a few revision notes of all the questions that u keep getting wrong and use this as a source of revision on the day before exams. And you're good to go for ur exam Good luck

    try solving as many past papers as you can exam style. go through them and make a list of the most repeated questions. Make sure you have the mark scheme answer for the most repeated questions.

    unit 1 went really good, it's easier too in a way. Like you know for a fact that replication and protein synthesis questions always repeat and usually carry good marks. questions and concepts are very repititive in unit 1.
    I'm expecting 60 or 62 for the grade boundry.

    the best way to get maximum marks in the long questions is referring to the mark scheme. memorize these answers because they are perfect and answers similar to them will be bound to score marks.
