For OCR A level biology, topic 12 communicable diseases, do we have to memorise pathogen names? Like what bacteria causes meningitis, TB, or like fungi that causes this disease etc?

yes
from the spec:

"the different types of pathogen that can cause
communicable diseases in plants and animals
To include,
• bacteria – tuberculosis (TB), bacterial
meningitis, ring rot (potatoes, tomatoes)
• viruses – HIV/AIDS (human), influenza
(animals), Tobacco Mosaic Virus (plants)
• protoctista – malaria, potato/tomato late
blight
• fungi – black sigatoka (bananas), ringworm
(cattle), athlete’s foot (humans)."


"the means of transmission of animal and plant
communicable pathogens
To include direct and indirect transmission,
reference to vectors, spores and living conditions
– e.g. climate, social factors (no detail of the
symptoms of specific diseases is required)."
