Need help with revision?

Over the next month I will be posting various resources to help you revise for your exams. This will include hints, tips, videos, summaries, tests and planners. Once they have been posted you will also be able to find them on the relevant pages.

IGCSE Biology Revision

OCR AS Biology Revision

OCR A2 Biology Revision

The first resource, available to download now, is a revision tracker. It can be used for any subject but is particularly useful when revising for a factual subject such as Biology. Every time you complete a test or a past paper question, you should write down anything you get wrong on the tracker. This will allow you to keep a note of your weakest topics and help you to focus your revision in the weeks leading up to your exam or test.

I have also posted an IGCSE revision quiz for the whole of Section B: Human Physiology. The quiz takes about 30 minutes to complete and I’d recommend doing it several times as it’s a really effective way to improve your factual recall. I wrote the the quiz using the Edexcel textbook so all the answers can be found there.

Please write in the comments below if you’ve found these helpful, or if there are any other revision resources that you’d like me to create.


Suffering from a broken heart?

heartIt’s Valentine’s day! A day to celebrate being in love. However, not everyone has that someone special. Maybe you’re suffering from a broken heart. The good news is that it can’t be as badly broken as the sheep’s heart I recently dissected.

You can view my dissection, which demonstrates the major structures found in the heart, on my YouTube channel. Or maybe try my ‘flipped’ lesson on TED-Ed.

I will be posting my next dissection, a pig eye, in a few weeks time!
