Interpreting your Biology A level pre-release materials

What is the Advanced Information

The main aim is to help you use your revision time effectively. In the case of Biology, you will see that the advice consists of a list of topics which will be the “major focus” of questions in your exams. The nearer the top of the list, the more likely something is to come up, so our guess would be that you can expect questions on gas exchange and the detection of light by mammals, for instance.

For Paper 3, you should focus your attention on the Core Practicals 1, 4, 8, 10, 12 and 16. If time is limited, you should spend less time on the other core practicals.

Study the Whole Course

If a topic is not on the list, it does not mean you can ignore it. Every topic on the specification may be relevant to the answer of some question or the focus of a question with a smaller number of marks.

Our general advice is to complete all lessons but to keep this list of topics close to hand during the revision process and make sure you are particularly well prepared to answer questions on all these named topics.

Key Takeaways

  • If a topic is not on the list, it does not mean you can ignore it
