Just replying so I can watch this thread, I think there will be a genetic cross question at least and probably one or two definitions in inheritance (like population, community etc)

I reckon there is a high chance of a 6 marker on variation, what do you think? Also maybe a bit of the geography side of it - carbon cyle, biodiversity etc.

It’s gonna be a tough paper due to the sheer amount of content and I do honestly believe there will be a 6 marker on either the eye or brain and like others are saying plant hormones due to the lack of bioenergrtics on paper 1

I agree, also The Eye has moved from Physics / A level bio recently so AQA will want to test to see if we have been taught it

These 3 topics are here: https://app.senecalearning.com/class...5-53995c3110f0 It comes with lots and lots of practice questions, so may help to revise everything in a short time and be prepared for whatever questions show up
