go over the content, apply it to questions. you should be able to find groups of questions on the same topic online. I also found video lectures to be extremely helpful, they often explain things in a different way

Biology is truly one of the hardest A Levels to pick, but if you enjoy it's great. I know that the work load is a massive, but there are ways to overcome this. Personally, my way of revising for Biology is creating notes, and I'm not talking about little sentences for each unit. I mean, like detailed notes including what you need (your exam board should have a spec book), along with diagrams and stuff. But, after this, I'd record myself repeating what my notes said. So, I could listen to them on my phone, during free lessons, on the bus or any other time. And to finish it off, do a BUNCH of past papers, seriously. The transition from GCSE questions to A Level is huge, and many people don't realise what the question is actually asking for. I'd advise reading articles or suggestions on the internet, and maybe a lesson dedicated to just answering specific questions. No matter what though, find a revision schedule for you, find a technique that works for you, and revise revise revise! Good luck, I'm sure you'll do amazing, and remember, beginning is always the hardest bit.

No problem, seriously now though, Biology to begin with is awful for some (including myself), and great for others. But, when finish the course, all the work links in with each other, and it gets much easier. So again, don't worry.

I started year 12 getting Cs and Ds in every test , but am now predicted an A* in year 13! so it is possible, but with biology you just need to be consistent with your knowledge and make sure you understand everything, especially long concepts and important topics , so when it comes to revision in year 13- all you need to do is slightly recap everything!
