Erm, well when i did B2 During January 2011..It was basically all about Photosynthesis/DNA (Mitosis/Meosis),And Mainly How Science Works questions?
It was a really hard paper, but i think that examiners will try to make the may paper less hard, as a lot of people complained.

And I've been revising B3 and looking at past papers, learn how the kidney works as well as dialysis and everything, as they are worth a lot of marks. Moreover, there is questions related to graphs..So try revising How Science works. And finally Understanding biofuel/biogas is key as it always comes up on papers!
I hope i helped!
And good luck for your exam!(s)
