I used these notes alongside practice exam questions and managed to achieve an A* in A Level Biology in 2017.

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.
