AQA A-level Biology | Year 1 Summary

I’ve been meaning to do this for so long and kept putting it off…but finally, here they are: my A-level Biology 1-page summary notes for the year 1 content!

Each topic is summarised on a single side of A4. These notes are specifically for the AQA new spec exam board, but certain topics may be applicable to other boards as well.

Feel free to revise from them, print them…or simply use them as inspiration to create your own!


The above image shows a sample of the notes.

Due to the incredibly high demand for the notes, both the year 1 and year 2 notes are now available here!

The remaining topics covered include:

  • Cells
  • Biological Molecules
  • Enzymes
  • ATP, Water & Ions
  • Membranes & Transport
  • Digestion & Absorption
  • The Immune System
  • Heart & Blood Vessels
  • Gas Exchange
  • Oxygen Dissociation
  • DNA
  • Natural Selection
  • Genetic Diversity
  • Biodiversity
  • Mass Transport
