### What to expect.

As a student, grades matter. And GCSEs? They matter even more. Flyp Academy helps you get the GCSE Biology grade you want with your friends, so you can get on with being the person you want to be. Our Free AQA Biology GCSE Resources are designed to be as accessible and easy-to-use as possible. Just create your account, select ‘GCSE Biology – AQA‘ as a course to enrol in, and get started with our videos, notes, quizzes and practice exams.

## Frequently Asked Questions

If you have any further questions, please reach out to us at support@flyp.academy

GCSE Biology is an exam usually taken at the end of Year 11 in the UK. It consists of two papers sectioned by topic, and tests a variety of valuable biological concepts.

Although Biology is often thought to be a tough subject, with proper preparation you can no doubt be very successful on the final exams. It is marked as a totally objective subject, meaning that you can track your revision progress very easily.

The Biology GCSE course covers a variety of topics, focusing on cell biology, organisation, infection and response, bioenergetics, homeostasis and response, inheritance, variation, evolution and ecology.

Everyone can succeed with different preparation styles and revision methods. We recommend going through our videos on Flyp Academy alongside the syllabus, and then testing yourself immediately afterwards. After doing this consistently, go through some past papers!

Don’t worry! You can always retake the exam, or you can move on and study something else. Failing an exam is never the end of the world – but if you don’t want to fail, get through our course!

As many as you’d like, or as many as you need to succeed! Don’t stress over not receiving the grades that you’d like to have initially.

You can resit it again, of course! Depending on which application you’re sending results to, you are generally asked to provide your highest scores. This means you can keep your initial score if you miss your targets later.

Resits cost in the region of £30 to £50 pounds, varying across the AQA, Edexcel, OCR, CIE and other boards.
