I'm currently in Y12, but we've completed all of Module 2 except Cell Division, Cell Diversity and Cellular Organisation and all of Module 3 except Transport in Plants. We've also completed the relavent PAGs in those Modules

What about you?

Hey this looks like an amazing exam thread!

Usually we find that it is easier the closer you get to exams to have the exams threads split out by paper. If you want to make the three split out threads we can get them promoted for you, get them busy and get everyone helping each other out for the next few months!

Let me know

EH

I’ve got no topics left to cover, I just need to do all of the past papers.
The hardest topic would have to be 6.3 - Manipulating genomes.

I try using the OCR PAG sheets for practicals, but often my teachers condense it into readable notes (this is for OCR A Chemistry though)
Other than that, i'm not really sure.

Physics and Maths Tutor are supposed to be good at those kinda notes.
