Hi, these are what I used when I did OCR biology and I am going to put my favourite ones in bold:


1) MCQs- https://www.ocr.org.uk/qualification...-and-teaching/
I was terrible at multiple choice questions so these helped me

2) PPQs- https://www.ocr.org.uk/qualification...15/assessment/

3) Biology in maths- https://www.ocr.org.uk/subjects/biol...h420-from-2015
Info from OCR themselves about maths in bio which is important as 10 percent of the paper is maths

4) Old spec PPQs- https://www.physicsandmathstutor.com...level-biology/
Even though it's not used some of the questions are useful

5) Miss Miller’s Blog
https://mrsmillersblog.wordpress.com/a2-biology/
Contains PPQs by topic, powerpoints and flashcard style powerpoints

6) A Hammond Biology
http://ahammondbiology.weebly.com/
Worksheets, powerpoints, PPQs

7) P+M tutor (new spec)
https://www.physicsandmathstutor.com...a-level-ocr-a/
I'm going to put this in bold as this was defo my favourite resource

8) A level Biology Tutor
https://www.alevelbiologytutor.com

9) A* Biology
http://astarbiology.com/a-level/ocr/notes/
Concise and condensed notes but don't rely on it as it misses quite a bit of information

10) Maths made easy
https://mathsmadeeasy.co.uk/a-level-...c-infobox-kjra
Fact recall questions

11) S-cool
https://www.s-cool.co.uk/a-level/biology
Concise and condensed notes but like A star biology don't rely on it

12) Tailored Tutors
https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCb1...bkGkv2L23oa44g
Has some free OCR specific videos to view

13) Bio Rach
https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCEF...WN-6psYhFsQWuA
Made for OCR exam board students with concise videos and one of my favourite things to use for extra notes

14) MrBioTom1
https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCpu...u9N-gZB6PGVhag

15) Ryan Toal
https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC5b...vgqYWUR9IKi4TQ
In depth per topic videos. He got an A* in the end.

16) CrashCourse
https://www.youtube.com/user/crashcourse
Simplifies biological concepts


17) Quizlet- It helped me with my fact recall

I don't know what CGP books you had but I had the year 1 and year 2 ones which condensed the information. I also had the big OCR book but don't rely on it as it has quite a few mistakes. However, I used to do the questions in there. I also recommend getting the CGP practice workbook if you haven't because I found that I was doing every single paper I was running out of questions. Best of luck

Okay so The CGP revision guide is the one that is A4 in size (it isnt the short but thicker ones)
I find the book useful but would you say the other one is better?
