This is my mindmap of the AQA 8461 GCSE specification. Use it as you will. I did it for myself when the new spec. 9-1 levels came out. It was my way of identifying how this spec. was structured. It can also be used for the Biology section of Trilogy although the numbers may not match the headings will. If a section is in higher tier only it is labelled with (H) and if it is only on the Biology and not the Trilogy it is labelled with (B).
I keep one for each class I teach and just tick them off as I finish. I’ve found it extremely useful for keeping track of my overall progress through the spec. Also useful for certain students who wanted to see what was going to be on each paper. Sections 1-4 provide the content for paper 1, sections 5-7 paper 2.
I then took each section and did a separate mindmap for each. Although I did this primarily for myself, some of my colleagues are also using them and when I left my folder open on the desk I found students asking me for copies. I do not claim that they would suit everyone but if you have that sort of need for a complete overview in a non-linear format it might suit you.
If you would like to see the more detailed versions of each section they can be found in my TES Biolojolly’s shop. These also contain the keywords and their definitions that now need to be learned in the relevant sections.
