Biology B1 Revision In our department we would consider the points on these knowledge documents as the fundamentals on what students NEED to know for this topic. It does involve a lot of rotate learning from the pupil; but they can be creative in how they revise with this information. Teachers can then follow up with recall and application questions. These documents are a great success with our students. Hope they help your students.

Students must fill in the keywords that are missing on the ‘student version’ ppt. There is answers on the ‘answer’ ppt. that accompanies the student version and there is a help sheet, this displays the keywords for students. Please note triple concepts are not included in these summaries (I usually get my triples to do up their own slide on the triple concept that is missing.)

Students (especially the lower ability) find these revision sheets very helpful and they form the backbone of their revision.

AQA Past exam questions (Paper 1,2 and 3)

This is an excellent assessment resource that my department used for internal examination with our Year 13’s - It was their December mock examination. I created all three papers using past examination papers dating back to the 2006 specification. My reasoning for creating these assessments from old material a) my students had completed all the current AQA papers and the majority had completed the specification before this. The 2006 - 2011 spec. questions posed a new challenge for my students even the meticulous students. **Student feedback: ** My meticulous students were so thankful for these questions as it really challenged them especially the Paper 3. My weaker ability students found it very challenging but it served as a great indicator for students needing further intervention support. *The resources: * A Powerpoint with the paper 1, 2 and 3 mark scheme; on slides 2, 20 and 38 you will see the papers question breakdown. I printed these for my students and got they to record their marks per question. At the end of the marking students analysed areas of strength and weakness. Paper 1 - students need to have studied Chapters 1 - 10 to answer these 7 questions - time allowed 55mins Paper 2 - students need to have studied Chapter 11 - 21 to answer these 6 questions - time allowed 55mins Paper 3 - students need to have completed core practicals, completed past exam questions on practicals to complete this paper - time allowed 55 mins
