3 Tips to Help you Prepare for Your QCE Biology Exam
- Make use of the syllabus. Exam questions often require you to integrate knowledge from separate parts of the syllabus. If you know the syllabus well you’ll more easily be able to quickly identify that topics that questions relate to in the syllabus.
- Think application versus memorisation. Instead of memorising facts, think about what the facts mean in terms of the bigger picture. Learn how to use what you know to answer questions you will be well ahead of those students memorising steps word for word.
- Practice Answering Questions. Be very familiar with recent past papers. Also, do practice papers from your school. Make sure someone marks your papers. You need someone else to look over your work to point out areas that need improving.
3 Tips to Help you Ace Your QCE Biology Exam
- Answer questions in full. You must demonstrate a depth of understanding in your responses. Address all parts of a question which clearly shows you are able to make links, revealing meaningful interrelationships. Read all parts of the question fully before attempting their answer. This ensures that you provide all the information being asked for
- Use Biological terminology in short responses. With short response questions use relevant biological terminology, particularly when conveying your understanding of the interrelationships between biological ideas.
- Extended responses require a planned structure. A retelling of all the information gathered and a statement of the conclusion is not sufficient. Include a clearly stated decision, paragraphs to support the decision, backed up by relevant facts, a consideration of alternatives and an explanation of why they are supported or not. Lastly, your summary must bring together the main points succinctly to reaffirm the decision.
