    Does anybody have any advice for writing Biology Paper II's? Even though it is basically "data-analysis" and just knowing how to read a graph, I often seem to leave out lavish amounts of information, and my marks on each question suffer as a result. (Very unfortunate, no?)

    Always support what you're saying with figures. "from the graph we can that the temperature is rising as it goes from 25 to 32", etc etc.

    you really need to concentrate on "Action Verbs", i think they call it like that... describe, discuss, compare etc. They are in syllabi, and there they explain what do they want from us when asking a question.

    my main advice is when you get "compare" kind of questions, always say what is similar and what is different.
