Do practice papers of HL Biology help for the IB exams?

Recommended Posts

Hey guys!

I am retaking my exams next month (November) and I just needed some advice. The thing is I have been studying Biology for the last 2 months and still I don't understand a thing. But that's not the only thing, it is more about the Past Papers... I have been solving paper 1 till now. And I just wanted to know whether it will help or not? Also is there anything else I can do? Please help!

i don't do bio but past papers always help. just 2 months of bio then exams? how are you going to manage that? when you practice papers,, look at mark scheme answers and maybe then things will make sense to you? :S anyway, work hard and good luck

since you are short on time, the only suggestion i would give is memorizing or atleast knowing the markscheme for paper 2. This is EXTREMELY IMPORTANT!

Though i am only taking Biology SL, i have been getting 7's using this trick, (of course with some studying aswell).

Back to your question, "Pastpapers help?"

My answer is definitely yes, focus on them.

hope this helps.

Past papers for Bio HL helped me a lot. You get used to how they phrase the questions, you can look at the markschemes to further develop your understanding, and sometimes they repeat questions or use very similar questions. I would recommend doing as many of them as you can, for all 3 papers.
