Year 12 Biology Exam

Year 12 students will have a two-hour Public Preparation Exam for Biology on Thursday February 6th

The following topics will be covered: Chapters 1-4 and up to Chapter 5.1-5.5 and Chapter 6.1-6.6

Folder checks will be on the following dates to ensure the completion of B5 and B6 4-part revision:

  • 12C- B5 and B6 –January 27th
  • 12A- B5 and B6 –  January 27th

Please note that all pupils have access to the following resources, which I would strongly encourage them to utilise:


4-Part Revision Resources students have access to 4-Part Revision Resources designed to build their knowledge and exam technique. Students are encouraged to follow the revision timeline to aid in revision for the upcoming exam.

Students have access to Past Exam Questions and Exampro packs for the following topics on FROG in the Mastercopy folder.

Text books are available for students to be use for homework and aid in their revision, and regularly practice exam questions. Students have access to the online version of the textbook which has more supporting resources as well. The website can be accessed at If pupils are unable to access they should to speak to their class teachers or myself.

We would like to remind pupils that they are expected to be working for a minimum of 1 hour a day on Biology outside of lessons; this will include set homework, but should also include their own independent study. At this point students should be revising by doing practise exam questions in timed and exam conditions (closed book) as well as making a second attempt at the more challenging exam questions.
