Hi, I got an A in biology these are what I used when I did OCR A 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/

8) A level Biology Tutor

9) A* Biology

Concise and condensed notes but don't rely on it as it misses quite a bit of information

10) Maths made easy

Fact recall questions

11) S-cool
https://www.s-cool.co.uk/a-level/biology

12) Tailored Tutors

13) Bio Rach

16) CrashCourse

17) Quizlet- It helped me with my fact recall

18) CGP books and workbooks are a livesaver


You have to learn the pattern of the mark scheme and what's in bold so ''cell membrane'' has to be ''cell surface membrane''
