Welcome to our free-to-use Q&A hub, where students post questions and get help from other students and tutors.

Follow the trail of responses and if you have anything to add please sign up or sign in.

You can ask your own question or look at similar Biology questions.


Use the past papers and check the marking scheme. Since the syllabus is vast, follow the important topics as per the previous year papers more thoroughly. 

Hi Habiba. My top tip for IGCSE biology is first, make sure you understand everything, and then - questions, questions and more questions. Do every past paper and example question you can get your hands on as the mark schemes are recycled year after year. 

In what capacity? In terms of exam style IGCSE is more geared towards high end questions, and like the new style GCSE, you have no coursework component but will have to answer questions that test your practical knowledge and ability to interpret experimental data (your teachers should cover the relevant experiments with you in your lessons).

Hope this helps, but feel free to ask further questions!

Hi, i will send you a revision support booklet to help you. IGCSE goes into more detail than AQA and OCR exam boards, there are several topics that have a greater overlap with A-level compared with the other two examination boards. Make sure that you download and complete past paper questions. use the mark schemes as a basis for making revision notes from, as they are concise. Hope this helps Karrie

Well first of all you need to know that the key to Biology is very simply to properly understand it and relate it to your everyday life. Never hesitate to ask to search for answers to your questions. Also spend more time solving than studying, that will help you memorize way easier. If you need any extra help I'm available, I am currently a fifth year medical student and I studied Biology OL and AL in IGCSE and scored A*. I hope this was helpful and good luck :) 

Hello! Let me do it. Feel free to ask anything. Thank you!
