AQA Biology 1-9 Paper 2 revision quiz

AQA Biology 1-9 Paper 2 revision quiz

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. This could also be used a pre-exam rev up; getting the students ready for the exam. The one I devised for paper 1 was a great hit with students and other users too. There are two versions; version 1 has the questions followed by the answers and Version 2 has the entire topic questions followed by the answers after all questions have been given. Please do leave feedback. Enjoy the quiz. All feedback would be appreciated. A great resources for a last minute revision session. The previous one got over 100 downloads in the first few hours of upload. Great resource.

Photosynthesis A Level Biology  A3 Overview revision diagram

Photosynthesis A Level Biology A3 Overview revision diagram

Large diagram of the process of photosynthesis inside a cell without any labeling whatsoever. Opportunity for students to annotate the structures inside a chloroplast, as well as the location of light dependent and light independent stages of photosynthesis. A full z scheme for non cyclic phosphorylation is included, as well as a diagram for cyclic and a diagram showing the membrane layout of the photosystems. Below there is an outline of the calvin cycle with just the number of carbon atoms represented at each stage so more revision opportunity here as well. The unbalanced formula tops the page with outlined letters - for further application the students can colour co-ordinate in the diagrams by colouring the different components of the forumla and relating that back to the different stages. Would also work well laminated for revision in class
