hey i take biology, psychology and english literature for my alevels and i am looking for some advice for improving my grades in english and biology as a the moment i am mainly working at a C level for english and C/D in biology , and i need at least a B for both in summer

I am struggling mainly with revising for biology , do any other biology students have tips? i currently do notes then past papers but i struggle with understanding the wording of the exam questions or knowing where to actually apply my knowledge i think

i do aqa for biology if that helps

For biology, make flashcards to learn the content. Then do a load of past papers to get used to the questions that typically come up

Try watching some YouTube videos on the topics that your struggling with. Crash course is a great channel but depends on your style on learning tbf.

Struggling to understand the questions
- Look at the amount of marks you gain from the questions- this will shine on ow much content you'd need to put into the question
- highlight the key points and terminology of the question- it'll help you to be more concise and form a layout.
- If your really struggling take a peak at the answers and create an how to answer layout- leave the question for abit and come back to it once you've forgotten (helps to quiz your knowledge).

I'm a non-Biology student but I hope that helped!!
