Designed as a quick overview of some of the key topics covered for the AQA Biology triology paper 2 specification. With extra notes for seperate biology GCSE. A knowledge based quiz devised to fill any last minute knowledge gaps and to help students recognise areas of weakness prior to exam.

Epistatis OCR A Level Year 2 lesson power point

I put this lesson together as my students had read the notes from the text book and just didn’t understand the concept, so I put this together for my mixed ability set and they said they found it easy to follow and it clarified the topic for them and they found the evidence in the worked through examples helpful.
