GCSE Biology Revision
At Skipton tutors we aid students with maths, English and science related subjects. This week we are focussing our efforts on GCSE biology revision. Some students really enjoy Biology but others seem to struggle. There’s a lot of information to memorize but less of the mathematical aspect in Biology compared to the other sciences. The key to passing GCSE biology is to ensure as a student you are well organised and have notes and access to the best resources. At Skipton Tutors we support students with preparing for their biology exams through the provision of 1-on-1 tuition but also recommending the best GCSE biology revision materials.
There is a huge amount of biology material out there and it can be a task in itself to find which ones will be the most advantageous. Multiple factors can feed into which revisional resources are the best at any given time. To start your learning journey it is best to begin with revising the subject itself, this may consist of working through our revision guide or online revision notes, like those on MME. Once you have a clear picture of a topic, the best way to under-pin the knowledge is to undertake practice questions and practice retrieving the information as this helps to embed the understanding. Once a student has completed a number of questions and gains a sense of comfort in a topic it is then time to proceed onto exam style questions where the use of what you’ve learned is then tested. This is where contextualised questions involving different scenarios occur and you have to work out what the question is actually asking and what knowledge it is testing. The final step of your GCSE biology revision journey is to move onto the biology past papers.
