Biology Past GCSE Papers

14th March 2019

Dear Parents/Guardians

In preparation for the forthcoming GCSE in biology, it would be very beneficial for your daughter to complete some past papers. They are available online from two trustworthy websites.

Mark schemes are also available for your daughter to check what she has written and see how it compares to what the examiners would like to see written. I suggest that your daughter works through the papers with no help, then uses books and resources (in a different pen) to add more information, finally checking the mark scheme and making amendments. Please note that as the current GCSE is a new structure, the past papers beyond 12 months ago have a slightly different format and combination of questions, but they are still extremely useful – biology is biology after all! Good luck.
