As many students view the Leaving Cert Biology course as very long and challenging, our videos and notes help you manage the information much better and make revising and conquering the course more achievable.  We will show you how to achieve a H1 standard through interpreting exam questions correctly and by identifying the keywords. We will demonstrate the importance of understanding how marking schemes can benefit you.

You will receive exam-focused Biology notes containing all past exam questions and solutions at the end of each topic. You will also get a booklet containing all experiment notes worth at least 15% and a booklet containing all definitions worth at least 20% of the Biology exam paper. These notes always help you gain confidence as they condense the syllabus by focusing on essential material to achieve that high grade.
