For A level biology, in order to get an A, should I have to memorise the textbook? Watch
To get a good mark in an a level biology exam, do I have to memorise everything in the textbook (especially the bullet points). I'm asking this because im worried that the textbook will go far too in depth and there may be some stuff that I dont need to know (some bullet points may be for my understanding). I tried to use the spec, but in my opinion it is very vauge. after i memorise a topic ill do pat paper questions. I'm just not sure if i should skip some parts of the textook out.
Did that for AS and didn’t work well. Memorising the book will probably get you a C or a possibly a B but not anything higher. To access the A and A* you need to do past papers and you should spend the bulk of your time on those after you memorised everything
