HEEEEEEEYYYYYYYYY, i am having my biology exam (cie paper 6) today!!! IN 4.5 hours! YEY! I I have read the whole revision guide twice and i've done approximately 15 past papers of paper 6. What do you suggest i do now....
honestly, just rest up :) sleep early, and just read through your notes just quickly before bed, then you’re ready :) good luck!!
things that would most likely come up in paper 6? and, are your notes in order? cos im taking down some and don't know how to order them up in diff chapters!
i did edexcel triple bio, so im not sure how cie goes, sorry :S mine are in the order of the edexcel book, so im not sure how the cie books go :S but i don’t think the order really matters, just as long as you know it :)
Paper 6 biology- boards tomorrow. I need a confidence boost. Im blanking out! what should I do?
have you revised? :) its normal to blank out a little, if youve drilled yourself hard enough and you know most of the stuff, it will naturally come to you when youre in the exam hall :) good luck!! all the best :)
Hello i'm Christie and I'm having my cambridge IGCSE Biology Paper 6 exam tmr afternoon and I havnen't start revising!!! (Stupid, I know). What should I do? I don't know what I'm supposed to knor for Paper 6 and how do i revise it in less than 24 hours?!
i think just read through some revision notes, if you haven’t made them, just make some quickly. look at your text book then take quick notes for each chapter that you feel are important :) make them colourful too, so you’ll want to look at them :) good luck!!
I'm happy your done with them coz my exams r this upcoming november & im a homeschooled girl so its quit hard for me :( do you have advice for me which might help me in my exam ?!
aww well good luck :) oh really, youre homeschooled?? thats so cool :) i would say, if you have any questions at all, ask someone that would be able to help you, don’t skip the things that you think you know, because there’s a chance you won’t remember them by the time you enter the exam, but do prioritize which subjects you feel least confident with, so you have more time with them :) all the best of luck :) let me know how they go :)

Changes that take place in the eye that allow you to see objects at different distances are called accommodation. Accommodation is a special process that involves focussing light to achieve a sharp image.
About 70% of light rays are refracted as they pass through the cornea. The lens however, makes the final adjustment by changing its shape so that light coming from far or near objects can be focussed. Therefore the lens accommodates.
The eye contains special muscles and ligaments that work together to:
change the amount of light that can pass into the eye
change the shape of the lens to focus the light (accommodation)
Some plants are given genes that provide resistance to pests. BT corn is an example.
The BT gene is cut out of the enzyme and is inserted into the genes of the corn and the placed into a vector and is multiplied in bacteria. It’s then inserted into the corn cell genome and then GM corn is made.
3 other examples of GM plants:
cereals to allow nitrogen fixing nodules. Able to receive nitrogen without fertilizers
golden rice, added vitamin A
soybeans, producing antibodies against range of diseases
