I’m running an online course covering the fundamentals of A Level Biology: www.crowdcast.io/biologywitholivia - teachers feel free to contact me at biologywitholivia@gmail.com if you’d like to arrange places for your students at a discount (I’m DBS checked).

I have created this paper which can be used as another ‘specimen paper’. All questions are taken from old exam papers, with a large majority from the 6416 specification. I have made sure that they are all completely relevant to the new specification and included many that cover the new content, which I suspect is what many students need/want to practice most.

This paper is in the same format as the AS exam (paper 1) which will be taken at the end of the course. Hence, the maximum mark for the paper is 91 and 2 hours is allowed.

I have also included a summary table of the topics that are covered in this paper.
