Key Terms Glossaries
Use these free glossaries to refer to as you are learning or revising a topic – don’t try to learn them off by heart!
If you notice any spelling mistakes in these A-Level biology revision notes please get in touch – I work on my own so I might have missed one here and there.
Please note that these packs should be used with other resources such as past papers, flashcards and workbooks. A huge part of A-Level biology is the ability to interpret data and use maths skills, which takes practise. Active revision and testing yourself is key to achieving those higher grades.
Can you fo revision note for all the topics please
Hi Anna, I’m sure I will do some more notes soon! Unfortunately I think it will be a long time before I get through every topic because I do these in my own time for free so it’s not something I can do quickly. I’m glad you like these ones though, thanks for visiting!
i’m so grateful for these notes. literally saved my ass these past years. <3
Hi, what do you use to make these notes?
Hey! Hope you are doing well. Please let me know if the Year 1 OCR A notes are fully updated and when are the OCR A Year 2 notes going to be available. Thank you so much 😊
Hi! I last reviewed the OCR notes last summer. I will be doing another review this summer to add any extra detail I can pick out from the 2021 mark schemes which have been released since. I will also start working on more OCR notes over the summer and will gradually release them over the following months whenever I get each topic completed.
Thanks for the notes, they are very detailed and amazing. Let me know when the OCR notes for Module 5 and 6 are going to be available.
Really glad you like them 😊 I will start working on more OCR notes over the summer so stay tuned!
Will you make more edexcel notes in the future? x
Yes I will be doing more Edexcel notes 🙂
I’m loving these, thank you so much. They’re so useful!
Thank you, I’m glad you like them! I have just updated the Molecules in Biology ones to today so make sure to download the latest version – just a couple of minor changes.
this is perfection. i really appreciate what you’re doing here 🙂 ❤️
Thanks for the lovely comment!
Thank you so much !! so kind of you :))
Thanks for the lovely comment, great to have you here! A new set of notes will be coming before the start of the next school year!

We will be really appreciate if you make math’s notes on important topic
For basics 🤕😞😊💜
May God bless you
Only A-Level biology notes at the moment. I’m glad you like them.
I absolutely love these, i like to look back on them from time to time to help me revise since some of these are what i have already learnt but need to practice more on so i could remember it for next school year, and the ones i didn’t do will help me keep ahead.
That’s great 😊 I’m so glad they are useful for you!
Hi have you got notes for any more of the topics?
Hi, everything I currently have is available here. Working on more currently. Don’t forget to click on the topics page to look through my articles as well.
Thank you so much!!! You’re able to help a lot of people and we’re grateful ❤
Thank you so much for all your hard work in producing this valuable resource.
Can you please write notes up for topic 5 if possible please x
Hi, I would love to make some more notes in the future but I need to start getting a little financial support for the huge amount of time I spend doing it – if you can, support me at https://www.buymeacoffee.com/zhtutorials to help me reach my first goal. I’m so glad you like them.
Can you plz write notes up for topic 4 if possible xx , I am struggling so badly on it 😫 ❤❤
Hi Anna, I hope to be able to write more notes in the future but I need to start getting a little financial support for the huge amount of time I spend doing it – if you can, support me at https://www.buymeacoffee.com/zhtutorials to help me reach my first goal! I have also written quite a few articles which relate to topic 4 – check out the ‘genes to proteins’ series under the topics tab.
Your a life saver! these notes are incredible!!, thank you for doing what your doing, its great help!
Can you do for CIE exam board please, very difficult to find good revision notes. Than you in advance.😊
Thanks for your comment. I don’t currently tutor anyone doing the CIE exam board, so I don’t have enough knowledge of the mark schemes etc to do that yet. Maybe one day though 🙂 The content is probably quite similar though so hopefully the existing ones will help with your understanding.
Hi, I’m Anna. Thank you so much for these amazing notes. You are wonderful! God bless you! Have a good day ahead and keep safe!
Hello, I paid £20 today and I would be willing to pay more if you could do complete notes for A Level Biology OCR notes. My daughter loves them 🙂
Thank you for your very generous contribution, it is much appreciated. I think it will be a while until I complete a full set of notes but I will definitely be working on some more soon!
How long would it take for your to do topic 4/5/6 OCR A because I’m gonna fail without your notes 😫
Probably not this year I’m afraid! You definitely don’t need them to pass though – make sure you do lots of past paper questions to get familiar with what the mark schemes are after.
your notes are awesomeeeee👌👌👌👌 can u do notes for chemistry as well.
Thanks, I’m glad you like them. I hope to do chemistry as well one day but I need to build up a bit more financial support for the time I spend on it first. More biology ones to come fairly soon though I hope, when I reach my first goal on buymeacoffee.com 🙂
are you not making anymore notes
Hi, um yes? The latest topic 4 key terms glossary was uploaded only 3 weeks ago. I do plan to continue making them but it is very time consuming for me to do and I only have my own time during evenings and weekends to do them. That is why I am hoping to reach my first donation goal at buymeacoffee.com/zhtutorials before working on the next ones. Please consider making a small donation if you like the notes and would like to see more.
these are amazing exactly what I needed as my notes werent upto scratch and I needed to revise!!!! Pleaseeee get all of the topics of AQA alevel bio done if possible as the ones right now are really good and would be very helpful if more topics were on thanks
Hi John, glad you like them, definitely planning to do more as support comes in. Follow me on buymeacoffee.com/zhtutorials to keep up to date with what I’m working on!
Could you do on A-Level biology Edexcel The heart, circulatory system etc. please
Thank you so much!!! Your notes are a lifesaver. Can you please do some on biodiversity and classification. 🙏🏻🙏🏻
Glad you like them! I will eventually get to the biodiversity topic but cells and the immune system is next on the list.
These notes are great thank you for sharing them!
Thanks for the comment, glad you like the notes.
I would just like to ask you when new notes are coming? They are amazing!
I’m glad you like them. I am hoping to have another lot done around Easter time, so keep your eyes out on my social media!
Thank you soooooo much for these lovely notes. They are very helpful
i love your notes! I am currently doing Edexcel exam board, do you know when more of these notes will be uploaded?
Hi, glad you like them. My next set will be released some time after Easter but probably only AQA and OCR. But then I promise I will work on an Edexcel set. The topics are so mixed up and different compared to the others so I have to do them separately to make full topic packs.
I beg you to come out with all the OCR A topics. Because I’m struggling to find notes that are like these. ( They’re amazing)
So glad you like them! Hoping to have another topic out ahead of this year’s exams.
HEY R u able to do Edexcel B biology notes pls
Hi, I don’t currently tutor the Edexcel B spec I’m afraid, so unlikely I’ll be doing them soon.
would you be able to make revision notes for all topics? I am extremely grateful for the ones you’ve provided us with as they are so helpful with revision. Thank you so much
I will eventually – it takes me a long time! Keep your eyes peeled for another set coming soon though.
Wow! This can be one particular of the most useful blogs We have ever arrive across on this subject.
Great content material and great layout. Your website deserves all of the positive feedback it’s been getting.
i was just browsing along and came upon your blog. just wanted to say good blog and this article really helped me.
Can you please do module 5 and 6 for OCR
You are a legend for doing all of AQA! Notes for Sections 1-4 were so helpful for end of Y12 exams last year, the work you’ve done has helped so many people.
Hello, love your notes. Do you have OCR A LEVEL biology year 2 notes and do you do OCR A LEVEL Chemistry notes
I don’t have either of these just yet. I will hopefully start on OCR year 2 over the summer. Chemistry will be a while off I think, but I’ll get there one day 🙂 Wish I had more time to work on them!
