I’m offering these notes free for a limited time to help students in light of school closures. 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 Model answers and annotations for 2018 AS Paper 1: https://www.tes.com/teaching-resource/2018-as-biology-aqa-paper-1-a-model-answers-and-annotations-exam-technique-12305611 Website: www.biologywitholivia.co.uk YouTube channel for A Level Biology tutorials, including past paper walk throughs: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCbt--SeFjS_B7ZgrWOqSUmA

www.biologywitholivia.co.uk I have put together a 35 page document of exam questions and mark schemes for the topic ‘gene expression and cancer’. Some of the content is new to the 2015 specification so I have also sourced some exam questions that are relevant from the old AQA biology and human biology spec. This booklet could be worked through during class time, as homework, or simply used by students for revision.

4 steps to getting the most out of your revision using past papers: Do the paper under exam conditions Self-mark the paper (be harsh) and focus on analysing your answers and shaping them into model answers Document what you’ve learned from that paper. Think about the bigger picture, particularly for application / practical / data analysis questions. This will help you develop your exam technique. Create an action plan and follow this up before you try another paper. Try and keep your action plans small and manageable e.g. 25 minutes creating flashcards for carbohydrates because you dropped the marks on that exam question Track your marks using this past paper progress tracker!
