Have you covered all the content? If not, how much do you have left? If yes, have you started revising? (Is it in-depth revision or are you still getting to understand the content?)

I’m REALLY struggling tbh, we haven’t finished everything yet (just 5.2 (excretion/kidneys) left two do, we’re doing OCR) we expect to finish everything this week. I’m literally only confident in a few topics (nucleotides, homeostasis, osmoregulation, ecosystem and ecology). Everything else is a blur and I feel like I’ve left it too late.

If you have any revision tips and know how to condense notes (specifically to the spec), help a girl outttttt and let me know, hopefully others can find use in them as well, thank you!!! You got this!! I definitely haven’t, but you will have!!

we have finished the content, so now in lesson we pick subject were not confident in and our teacher teaches it to us in depth. I feel like for me the best way to revise biology is reading a paragraph on a page, shut the book and recall everything you have remembered on paper. I also recommend making your own notes and do past paper questions

The thing that p*sses me off about ocr biology is that the questions are just application questions. Oh can memorise the spec but if you can’t apply it to the question , forget it 💔💔😭

That’s what I do when I try to revise for in-class assessments and mocks, seems to help me memorize the content but doesn’t help so much with applying the knowledge, so I use past papers if I can. Thanks )

When is your bio exam? And so did I but just try to get as much content done. We’ve still got a lot of time when we get back to do past papers, don’t worry

Same!! Are you ocr? What board for chem? And yeah I think try your best to understand the concepts thoroughly rather than rushing into past papers which you can always do later
