My schools has covered 17 of the total 21 chapters (AQA).
Try to finish the content ASAP and get onto smashing out the practice questions, or you'll find the new exams very difficult.

In school covered everyone from section 1-5 and 7 and homeostasis which is a part of section 6. Aqa

In terms of revision for mocks- I made flashcards all the way through yr12 for section 1 and 2. So I going to flick through those and do blurt mindmaps.
This week I did my exchange flashcards and yesterday I went through mass transport flash cards not all there 60 in totla is such a big topic and dense.

Today I read through section 4 in the textbook I was planning on doing fc and I will but biology can be so dense sometimes i can’t do it, my mind wonders.

We recently completed photosynthesis and respiration and ecosystem in school and I know that pretty well - no fc for this topic, just tailored tutors notes. I’m just going to do blurt mindmaps for that and fill in my gaps. I’ll probably do fc for this after mocks.

I had tailored tutors for a bit and their notes are really good, so for those topics I’m not really making fc. Might read through but the textbook and pick out key points don’t know yet.

I feel like last year I knew how to revise but we had end of years late April early May and after that I feel as tho I’ve forgotten how to revise. This week well the 3 days left I’m trying to rejig my memory with all the content and next week I’m just doing questions. Same for chemistry, go over fc do a blurt mindmap in the evening or the next day and then questions next week.

Sorry for the long comment just told you my whole lifestory but hope you find it helpful.

And have yet to do:
-Most of Module 5 (we’ve done Respiration (5.7) and Photosynthesis (5.6))
- And 6.1, 6.2, and 6.3 from Module 6
How much of AS have you done so far?

Do a mock test or two. You can check which area you are worst in that way. Then do more practice questions in your weak area, but do not neglect your strengths too .

Best website for questions is physics and maths tutor.

What grades do you in class test out of interest using tailored tutors (I use it too and want to know if it's effective or not?)

Roahhh that's amazing you've covered so much, we've only covered 3-4 chapters and my teacher thinks we're going really fast, how ironic. You're very right; do you think I should learn ahead the content because my bio teacher thinks we're gonna finish the content by april in which I WILL NOT have time for PP and I need to hit those PP seeing how hard that 2018 bio paper was.

You're correct- it's unlikely that your school will finish it in time.
It's best that you work ahead of the class so that school becomes a 'revision session' for the content you would have already memorised by then.

What subjects do you out of interest? I will need to learn ahead for Bio because I'm planning on starting all the past papers for all my subjects very early on. I'm currently learning ahead for Maths because I love the subject so much (want to do IB and need to make sure I get a high grade for this seeing as Bio and Chem aren't relevant). How much have you content have you covered for your other subjects?

We share a lot in common! I do Maths, Bio and Chem with the goal of IB!
I'm taking a gap year before uni to get a lot of work experience to hopefully make me stand out for the Spring Weeks

For Maths we've done 16/21 Chapters
For Chemistry we've covered 24/32 chapters. But some of the chapters we have left are very short. Still, my school are a bit behind on this subject.

I am also taking a gap year hopefully; hoping to either apply for CS/maths or economics (looking at Cambridge and UCL). I will try to get work experience too in my gap year. We are very similar lol, are you also very competitive like me academically wise
My word, you have covered alot for maths and chemistry, you guys must fly through the spec lol. But that's really good because you have more time for PP which are crucial for those A*s
