Looking for WACE Biology past papers to practice your skills and apply your knowledge? You’ve come to the right place.
In Unit 3 of your WACE Biology course you learned about the Continuity of species. In Unit 4 you learned about – Surviving in a changing environment.
It’s never too early to get ready for your final assessment. In fact, it’s important that you learn to develop your examination technique, including answering questions effectively, eradicating careless errors, and using the correct terminology. We’ve got WACE Biology past papers from 2016 onwards to help you develop your exam technique. Remember that depending on when the syllabus is updated, not all past exam papers will reflect the requirements of the most up to date syllabus.
We’ve organised the past papers by course and year, naming the links as accurately as possible. If you find any errors, please let us know.
The table usually shows each question and the criteria with each mark or mark range. Marking guides also contain sample answers.
3 Tips to Help you Prepare for Your WACE Biology Exam
- Learn how to write in-depth answers to questions. Use your Biology syllabus and practise writing in-depth responses to questions about the life cycle, impact, mode of transmission, spread and management for all of the pathogens/diseases listed in the syllabus.
- Break your revision down into bite-sized pieces. A good way to do this is with index cards. For example, write a term like mitochondria or the name of a process on one side of the card and then the definition, process steps or explanation on the back. You’ll probably have a lot of cards but just a bite-sized piece of information on each.
- Practise decoding questions. Complete past exam papers and lots of typical exam-styled questions so you get practise at determining exactly what has been asked.
3 Tips to Help you Ace Your WACE Biology Exam
- Read the question carefully. Make sure that you answer the question asked, according to the instructional verb in the question (e.g. state, define, discuss, explain).
- Communicate clearly in your written answers. Use formal and precise language and scientific terminology. Make certain information is logically organised, connects different points and demonstrates your understanding of key concepts
- Include units with quantitative data. For example, when reporting data from a graph or table.
