I’ve condensed the whole A Level Biology AQA course into a series of topic by topic guides. I used these notes alongside practice exam questions and managed to achieve an A* in A Level Biology in 2017. Doing well in biology isn’t all about being ‘clever’, it’s about being strategic and working smart (as well as hard work, of course). I truly believe anyone can do well.

I hope that these notes will not just help students understand biology, but also understand exactly what the examiners are looking for.

  • Easy to learn, concise, bullet point revision notes
  • Covers every point on the AQA specification - no more, no less
  • Based on the analysis of 10+ years of past papers and mark schemes (we all know how specific biology mark schemes are)
  • Some example exam data/application questions and model answers to make sure students are fully equipped for the exam

Topics included:
New specification AQA A Level Biology, Topic 8:

  • 3.8.1 Alteration of the sequences of bases in DNA can alter the structure of proteins (mutations)
  • Most of a cell’s DNA is not translated (stem cells)
  • Regulation of transcription and translation (transcription factors, oestrogen, epigenetics, RNA interference)
  • Gene expression and cancer
  • 3.8.3 Using genome projects
  • Recombinant DNA technology

Note - DNA probes and medical diagnosis, as well as Genetic fingerprinting, are not yet included in the booklet.
