Which exam board are you doing? If you look at the specification it should say in the first few pages what each paper consists of

It’ll also be in your textbooks

Specification...

Content is split into six teaching modules:
• Module 1 – Development of practical skills in biology
• Module 2 – Foundations in biology
• Module 3 – Exchange and transport
• Module 4 – Biodiversity, evolution and disease
• Module 5 – Communication, homeostasis and energy
• Module 6 – Genetics, evolution and ecosystems
Component 01 assesses content from modules 1, 2, 3 and 5.
Component 02 assesses content from modules 1, 2, 4 and 6.
Component 03 assesses content from all modules (1 to 6).

Component 01 assesses content from modules 1, 2, 3 and 5.
Component 02 assesses content from modules 1, 2, 4 and 6.
Component 03 assesses content from all modules (1 to 6).
Exactly. You have 6 modules.

So paper one has: Development of practical skills in Biology, Foundations in Biology, Exchange and transport and Communication, homeostasis and Energy.

Paper two has: Development of practical skills in Biology, Foundations in Biology, Biodiversity, evolution and disease, Genetics, evolution and ecosystems.

And paper three has all of them.

Hiya,

what exam board are you doing?
for a level biology there are 3 papers.

my best bet is to download the spesification from your exam boards website and use that. Not only will it tell you everything you need to know but also give you a break down of every exam, the weighting each exam holds and what will be covered on each paper.
