Hi,
Hope whoever’s reading this is okay. Would a 6/7 in biology gcse be okay to do biology A Level, and get good grades? If not, does anyone have any methods in how I can improve and get top grades? I’m doing AQA if that helps.
Thank you for your time

Ideally a 7 is needed but you still have lots of time to revise and get even higher. Some tips I used for biology GCSE is to make flash cards but make sure the info is ACCURATE and which will get you marks on the exams. Print out the spec and make your note according to the spec. Use mark schemes from past papers to write your notes so you know what the answer they want is. Usually they use the same questions every few years or change it slightly so looking and writing your notes from mark schemes is a good idea. WRITE YOUR NOTES NOW, so you don’t have to do them later giving you more time to revise. Also bbc bite size is a good resource as they have dedicated gcse biology revision for all exam boards .Good luck!

Hi, I got a 9 in aqa gcse bio and my key tip is to make flashcards because then you have a certain space to condense notes e.g. one flashcard about eukaryotic cells. also make sure you understand what your teacher is explaining in lesson and if you don't understand then watch some YouTube videos about that topic. I am doing biology a level right now and it is a huge jump from GCSE (difficulty and content wise) so be sure if you want to do it for a level.

Thanks so much for your help! In terms of YouTube, who would you recommend watching? I’ve heard of primrose kitten, and I’ve watched a couple videos by free science lessons, but would you suggest any more YouTube channels?

I recommend both of them and my school subscribed to mygcsescience.com which had useful videos and quizzes for all aqa GCSE science I really recommend subscribing to it (sorry but idk the cost but it will be on the website).

Thank you! I’ve heard of this page before, I don’t remember it being that expensive so I’ll definitely try investing in it! Thank you!
