Biology

We do more than revise key theory and solve past exam questions.

Each session also includes:

  • finer points of exam preparation
  • how to decode unusual exam questions
  • how to answer questions to the marker’s requirements for maximum marks.

To revise the whole Biology course, you should attend all the seminars listed below. However, this is not compulsory and you may choose any combination of sessions.
