    If you were aiming for an A/B, is it time to start revising properly for it every day?

    From personal experience, don't start intensive revision until much nearer the time. you will wear yourself out and then not do as well as you could. just revise a little now, a bit more in December and the few weeks before the exam do intense revision.

    Also, i know this isn't exactly the best attitude but theres plenty of opportunities to resit this first paper so even if it goes worse than expected don't worry too much.

    Light revision now - make sure you understand the basic concepts of what's going on (flowcharts might help).

    Picture the processes in your head. Flashcards are good for biology

    I'd class light revision as writing up notes in the class, while going over them at the same time. Try to do that as much possible or each time you've just had that lesson.

    1 - 2 hours of biology per day? Or 1 - 2 hours including all your subjects? 1 - 2 hours for just biology is way more than light. You just need to grasp the concept of each topic first. But if you feel like doing 1 - 2 hours a day then it's nobodies choice but your own.

    Your friends sound like the competitive type. This kind of person is only driven to do well by the prospect of being 'top of the class'

    I revise Biology differently.
    I like speninding some time looking through the textbook/notes before I sleep. My knowledge of Biology sort of accumulates through time.

    For other subjets, i usually revise 1-2 weeks before exams
