Here are my 1 page summaries for the year 2 content in A-level Biology! Hope you find them helpful!

The topics are spilt up according to the way my college went through them, so it’s not in the exact same order as they are listed in the specification, but everything is on here (apart from Gene Technology, as we finished it so close to the exam that I didn’t have time to make one for it! 😬) 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 use them, save them, print them, share them…or simply use them as inspiration to create your own!

(I apologise for some letters being cut off at the edge of the page…I tried my ultimate best to make them it fit when scanning it! Luckily, it’s just a few letters or numbers for steps so you should be able to still make sense of it.)

  1. Love your notes! My son in taking an WEMT training course this October, he is really looking forward to this wilderness medical training. It may turn into more of a career for him then just additional training-we will have to see😊

      1. Nope, a classical clarinetist rock climbing guide! How is that for a combo?
        He is finishing his BMus this semester and has been a rock climbing instructor for 8 years (started when he was 14). Now he wants to spend some time outdoors, guiding professionally so he is working on a variety of certifications. The WEMT being one of the more demanding ones. It will be interesting to see where he goes with all of this💕


  2. Thank you so much for these! Do you think you would be able to upload this onto google drive or something so we can download it in bulk? Thank you again!


      1. Hey,
        It would be great if you could send me a link to these and any other resources you have for AQA new spec biology, OCR A chemistry and edexcel maths plus your checklist for resources


  3. Hi,

    Is it possible to have a copy of the notes for AS/A2 Biology please your notes are insane!
    And I was wondering if you had chemistry ones as well by any chance?

    Thanks! 🙂


  4. Hello!! I don’t know if it’s just me but my downloads of the Biology summary notes have disappeared and the dropbox link is no longer working. Could you please email them to me again? Thank you x


  5. Hiya, your notes are beautiful, I love them! Just wondering if you made notes gene technologies (e.g electrophoresis)?


    1. Hi, as I explained above, I unfortunately did not create a summary sheet for gene tech because we finished covering the topic just a week before the exam so I didn’t have time
