in year 12 at the moment, and when it comes to revision, i know the content but i find that a level is more application of knowledge than memorising like in gcses and I'm finding the transition a bit difficult. any tips on how to improve coz my previous two tests haven't gone so well due to the application part and in my sixth form they base our predicted grades on the eoy exams and tests

i think the key to doing well is EXAM PRACTICE
that'll help you apply the knowledge instead of just memorizing it.

exam questions but doing exam questions for revision all the time gets boring. What you should do is try to link everything together because essentially everything in biology exists and work together. Like when talking about ultrastructures also bring in the biological molecules involved in some of these

how do you do questions and not get disheartened by getting the wrong answer?

good luck in your exams too

Definitely. What I do is after I've written all the detailed notes for a chapter I'd make a summary page of the most important, key points (it should all fit in one paper at most)
