I don't enjoy biology that much, it's my weakest of the three sciences, and for January I revised for the unit 1 exam like the world was going to end, and I still didn't get the grade I wanted!

However,  I retook it in June and hardly revised, and got full 100 UMS marks!!! actually really happy xD

ohh, it's really annoying how each answer is placed in order of votes, I don't know if people are talking to me or not!

but well done all of you on your result.

@Layan<3 I guess you should try doing as many exam questions as possible, and structure long answers with bullet points, so it's easier to gain marks. look at mark schemes and read what points get the actual marks, so try to be concise with your answers and sort of learn the mark scheme?

i found biology great and even though the is a lot of content it still seems easy but i found that i didn't study very hard and i still got an A* which was a real shock. but a relief because now i don't have to retake in yr10

Although I have got all A*'s in my biology so far I do find that it is quite hard because instead of hard calculations in physics and equations in chemistry everything is really detailed and they give you a lot of content. They also expect you to know a lot of scientifical keywords.

I'm the opposite, I didn't really enjoy Biology but apparently I got A* in the exam, which I don't get but, I'm happy with it obviously :)
