    Is this the W2 paper? Just bang out the papers and study the mark schemes. That's the only way! It most certainly is not an easy paper as there often aren't definite answers. For the data question, you do need to look up the basics of the statistical tests (see syllabus). Try and get your teacher to help you through a paper or two, or perhaps go through it in a group. That got me started off anyway.

    Are they called the W2 papers? Im really not to sure. My teacher just calls them the practical papers. But thank you for the advice. I tried doing some and got most marks for each of them.I guess i just need lots of practice
    The only things that haunts me is when they ask you to plan an investigation. I can barely understand the question they give us.its so detailed. but like i said, Ill probably just practice lotss
    Thanks =D

    Definatly learn the stats. There is a link in the ultimate biology resource thread for advice on w2 papers.

    Last year I don't think I did amazingly well on this paper but because the synoptic tends to be quite straightforward it balances out the markto give you a decent grade.

    Look through mark schemes and you should notice a trend in answers they expect e.g. limitations, further work. As long as you try to be a logical as possible you'll be fine.
