Revising for A-Level Biology Watch
Any recommended resources?
Make detailed notes from the textbook and then do as many past paper questions as you can. The mark scheme is stupidly specific for A-Level Biology and so you must learn the key mark scheme words that get you the marks in each topic.
For AQA, I made PowerPoints in great detail of every single topic and some off spec knowledge (for the synoptic essay). Once I knew everything by heart on the topic, I’d do as many past paper questions as possible. The trick to biology is knowing how to answer questions so once you know everything you really need to do past paper after past paper.
Thank you!! Do you recommend any books/websites that have helped with your revision?
- study using the syllabus (I swear if you type that out in the search box, you'll see that I have been giving this advice A LOT)
- ALWAYS make notes using the syllabus objectives and then keep studying those notes plus use them whilst doing past papers. These notes should be like an "answer" to all the bullet points / objectives in the syllabus
• students must know the value of pi
your note should be:
- pi has the value of 3.14159...
