How to improve your grade up to an A*! playlist

Learning about the skills you need and how to improve them

This set of 2 comprehensive videos takes you through the skills that the exam boards themselves say that you need to have to access all the marks on any A level biology exam paper, how you can work out which skills you are missing and practical steps that you can take to build those skills.

They include:

  • what skills A level biology tests
  • where your 'skills shortage' is i.e. those that are causing you to lose marks
  • which skills you should prioritise to get the fastest increase in marks
  • what the command words in a question mean
  • how to unlock the marks in questions that ask you to explain, evaluate and draw conclusions

If you are 'stuck' at a particular grade and want to go higher and you are prepared to be honest with yourself (🙂) and put in the work, then these videos WILL help you.

Your Teacher


I'm a qualified biology teacher and online tutor who makes videos on A level biology topics which are clear in their explanations, straightforward in their format and mark-earning in their exam question hints.

I LOVE my subject! But I also know that many A level students want to 'know what they need to know' and need help to unlock the marks in the exams, so I have formatted my videos to be straightforward, clear and pacy. They may not be 'beautiful' (I am no techy!) but the content is high quality.
