Since stating that I achieved an A in OCR biology by making and using ANKI decks, many people have been asking me to share them.

Firstly, I would like to say that I used my anki cards with past papers, and overall past papers are still the best way to prepare for the exams.

Secondly, I'm not sure if you will get as much use out of just using my cards as opposed to making your own cards.

Thirdly, I don't think the cards are exhaustive. I didn't include everything from the OCR textbook.

I also made a past paper tracker for old spec papers(also in the folder).

Here's the link to my ANKI decks and my past paper tracker: https://drive.google.com/drive/folde...3F?usp=sharing

Below is a quote on how another student achieved an A* which some might find useful.

Hi, I managed to get an A* for OCR Bio A2 this year for the new spec. I got 192/270 (176 or something is the A* borderline). As for advice,

1. A level Biology is VERY memory orientated, so make sure you keep checking through your textbook / notes that you UNDERSTAND near enough all of the content (it isn't as hard as you think). The reason why I capitalised 'understand' is because it makes it so much easier to understand the biology in order to remember things.

2. When faced with an exam question, if it isn't pure data analysis, then it will ALWAYS reference at least one part of the syllabus that you would have learned. If you find in a paper that a question is particularly tricky / vague, think of any area of your knowledge that links to the question and reference that in your answer.

3. With calculation questions, it just comes with practice. Ask your teacher for some improvised calculation questions that are in a similar style to what you might find in an exam. Do every calculation question that you can do in the practice / sample / past papers, understand where you went wrong if you get questions wrong, and fix the misunderstanding.

4. Do all of the past / practice / specimen papers that you can for the new syllabus, and do your best to understand the 'vibe' of the mark scheme to the questions; i.e what examiners look for in answers to score marks.

Good luck! Hope this helps.
