  • An easy-to-set, yet valuable homework
  • Requires minimal preparation and interaction from the teacher – great for cover lessons!
  • Result! Revision notes – with full spec coverage!

Cross-referenced to approved textbooks for new spec:

  • AQA Biology, A Level Year 1 and AS (Oxford, 2015)
  • AQA A-Level Biology, Year 1 and AS (Hodder, 2015)
  • AQA Biology, A Level Year 2 (Oxford, 2015)
  • AQA A-Level Biology, Year 2 (Hodder, 2015)

Includes key skills for practicals and Maths

Excellent… really useful for weaker students as it helps them to pull out key ideas without missing the level of detail necessary to understand the concept at A level. – L. Marsh, Assistant Head of Science & Independent Reviewer
