Guys im doing biology unit 4 in like 4 days and i still haven’t revised because i had so much exams. What advices do you give me ?? What can i do in 4 days besides doing past papers? I didn’t even learn the spec at the start and im just relying on my half ass understanding😭.
Also if anyone has notes they can share please do. Im so clueless and anxious. I need an A in biology because im applying for medicine (i got A in as level) and i always studied biology alot but this year i never studied it. My issue is i have p3 test on January 14 which is a day after my biology test so I can’t revise biology only. Im also really terrible in math and all i did was memorize the formulas , I didn’t do any paper until now. I really think il fail both of the exams this time. Please give me any tips , notes , advices. Im literally so lost and i feel like suiciding.

this will help u for biology

https://www.physicsandmathstutor.com...l-edexcel-ial/

revise how u see fit - whether revsion notes, then flashcards [ that's what i'd do]
or whatever, just make sure you know it all

last day test urself with a lil test, most important thing

for maths

also do an exam, to see where ur at - link just underneath
only thing u can do is see how well u do -

for the topics u struggle with,
https://www.examsolutions.net/intern...exams/edexcel/

find the right tutorial, and usually he has practice questions within the vids
excellent source - very reliable, 5 stars from me

but if u feel u need more practise on the topic - https://www.physicsandmathstutor.com/maths-revision/
has plenty more

hope it helps

if u need more help with maths, like a question, or anything else feel free to message me

work hard, u got this

Good luck!

HURRY!

Get to the playlist section of this channel and look for the UNIT 4 FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS PLAYLIST.
It will literally help you quite significantly!
WATCH ALL unit 4 vids!

If you don't have time, solve 2019 and 2020 ALL PAPERS including october 2020 OLD AND NEW SYLLABUS as well the SPECIMEN paper WHILE SEEING THE MARK SCHEME without a timer. This will get you to know the common marking points in the mark schemes.

However, make sure you understand ALL content.


REALLY, don't ever memorize. UNDERSTAND THE CONTENT and you'll surely do very well on your exam.


Please reply to this message if you need further help.

Hi! I’m also doing Bio and p3 next week. I would revise using the physics and maths tutor notes, and when u see u know everything, go do two or three past papers. Honestly, with Bio, it all depends on the mark scheme... that’s why the grade boundaries are relatively low (compared to chemistry for example)
for p3 you really have to identify you weak topics and do as many examples as you can.
I wish you good luck, and I would love to hear how it went afterwards (for bio and p3) , cause not many people do bio in my school. If u r in Europe, I believe our exams start at the same time.
good luck !!

Hey how do u think of the bio exam ? It was terrible the worst I’ve ever done in bio and even worst i studied so much barely slept and it wasn’t worth it at all. The paper was just analytical and they didn’t test our knowledge at all. I memorized and understood for nothing. And tomorrow is my p3 test I didn’t even study math to do well in it and it was still *****y af.

Hi! Sorry I forgot to reply. Overall, Bio was terrible. I hated the beetles question and the last question. I hated the whole exam. It was really hard, and I need more time. I’m hoping for a nice mark scheme and nice grade boundaries.P3 went fine. Didn’t struggle with anything specific. Just hoping I didn’t make too many silly mistakes. Hope we all get some great results tomorrow !
