Tues 2 April

Category: Tags: , ,


This ticket gives your child access to a full day of live and interactive GCSE Biology revision. The sessions will be taught informally on bitpaper allowing for novel links to be made between many areas of Biology – this is particularly important for the types of question that appear on Paper 2.

Cameras will be enabled for those that wish to use them, as will microphones and the chat function.

The day will be focused on four key areas of Edexcel’s IGCSE Biology specification (which will also apply to most other specifications). An indication of content to be covered is below but the sessions will adapt to questions raised by students in the group so exact content may vary.

Each ticket enables the student to come and go as they please ie they could attend sessions 1, 2, 4 and 5 if they had other commitments during session 3. Please make sure the student’s Zoom name matches that on the purchased ticket to ensure access. Tickets are non-transferable and non-refundable.

Schedule (all UK times):

Session 1: 10-10.45am Exam explainer and intro to Biology: Brief explanation of how the exams work, top tips on exam technique, variety of life, Kingdoms, Cells, Molecular movement (Osmosis, diffusion and active transport) (Units: 1, 2a, b, d)
