I learn the content from https://www.thestudentroom.co.uk/sho....php?t=5062288 first and check if it covers all the content from my textbook. I add some more detail to it (the 'HowScienceWorks' boxes that we all skip ) and then learn that too.

After doing that, all I do is PRACTICE QUESTIONS as I believe that this is the key to Biology as there are soo many application questions. I write down the questions that I got wrong and memorise them to prevent me from making that mistake in the future.
I memorise the Mark Scheme for as many questions as possible, as similar questions in biology will have an overlapping mark scheme which expects certain key words and won't give you the marks unless you state those 'exact words'.
I once lost marks for describing some equipment as 'accurate' but I got it wrong because the mark scheme only accepted the word 'precise'.

Where I get my Biology practice questions:
• Past and Specimen Papers for all AQA, OCR and Edexcel
• Physics&MathsTutor
• SaveMyExams
• Ask your teachers for more questions
• pxs biology

My advices would be to understand, focus on practicals, mathematics question and start analysing random graphs.

Specifically for OCR: Do not bother revising from textbooks. Buy the CGP guide or any other revision guide. The exam is going to be application anyway.
