Six long questions – answer four – 240 marks (60%)
The Biology course is really diverse and covers everything from Cell Biology to the Human Body to Ecology and Plants. Make sure you know your definitions when studying Biology. They can often make up 25% of the questions on the exam. There are only 22 experiments to be learned and these often make up over 20% of the marks. Also, for each experiment be able to draw a diagram of the setup and know all of the steps and the reasons for taking these steps. Many students decide to leave out whole sections of the course such as Plants or Ecology. Be careful doing this as you will have to answer at least a few questions in the short questions and it’s a risky strategy if difficult questions come up in your chosen topics. Therefore it is recommended you cover the entire course
In addition to these notes, we are constantly trying to expand our selection of notes to include more traditional subjects, such as Leaving Cert Higher Level Maths. Therefore, keep an eye out on the site and our socials to see when we come out with these too!
