Is it good to revise solely based on the AQA Science specifications?

I will be sitting my unit 2 modules at the end of this month. Doing my unit 1 modules, I realised that a lot of "application" questions were put in that were not in the specification. So how can i revise properly for these application questions? I'm sitting Biology Unit 2 and Physics Unit 2 on the 21st and 30th May respectively under the AQA new specification.

Tahira hey babe!! Well my view would be that you do exactly what is on the specification because that is what they are going to ask you. But I would probably tell u to try n c if u can link things like equations together (well be seen much more in physics). This is because it comes under the application of physics principles.

Furthermore, don't limit yourself too much on just the specifictation especially in biology. The reason is that to fully be able to comprehend a statement may require you to goin further a bit so you can refine your definition.

This could be an example:

Your syllabus may say sumethin like "know that the heart can create a pulse" but not actually tell you how and why. You don't have to do that however make sure you know your content (lol as if you could teach the class instead of your teacher!!) and keep practicing exam stlye q's. Also if you have revision books use them as they are most likely to have revision notes as well as exam q's including the answers. Finally my key point would be summarise each subject into a few notes, make sure you know your definitions for each subject and practice practice practice.....

I know you'll do well !!!

Gud luk babe!!!!   ;)
