The only book written for the new (first sitting 2017) AQA Biology exam. This book gives clear, concise and updated advice for every title found in the last 20 years and complete A* essays for 25 of them. On top of this are example paragraphs, key tips and how to organise your essay to get the most marks. This book has evolved over a period of years. I am fortunate to have had a number of truly excellent students (Oxbridge and full UMS). Over the years I have ordered the transcript of all our school's A* papers and collated the essays. Where there were gaps I gave these students the past-paper essay titles and mark schemes and paid them to write 'model essays'. Then, as a trained marker, I edited them all to make sure they were written to an A* standard. A colleague of mine, who has also marked for AQA, then went through them as a third independent determination of their grade. We have used this collection of essays in our school for a number of years with fantastic results. With the advent of the new specification, I have revisited them and made changes to reflect the new content. Topics that are no longer at A-level have been removed and new content added, which has meant a number of particular large changes in the field of Ecology. This has been a surprisingly onerous undertaking, but I am very proud of the result. Someone then suggested to me that I should publish my work and this is the product - an analysis of over 40 titles and 25 A* essays.
