Hi, can anyone who is familiar with the Singaporean Biology O level, advise if the new Biology Higher GCSE, done here in the UK, is easier or harder than your o level. Please look at the Specimen Higher Paper only. The URL is below:

Hi,

From my experience, O level Biology (Spa) is definitely harder than GCSE papers, although both test on similar topics. Hope this reply helps.

Thanks for taking the time to reply. If you compare the Nov biology O Level against the URL in my earlier post, are you sure yours is still harder.

It is the Higher GCSE papers I am alluding to: http://www.aqa.org.uk/subjects/science/ ... -resources

Hi,
I saw the higher GCSE question paper 1 & 2, which some of the topics we don't do at O levels. But in comparison to the similar topics in both paper such as digestion, Bio O level seems harder, to me.

Thanks for checking. The general consensus is that GCSEs will be as hard as they were in the 50s. We are moving to applied Sciences. A lot of the theory is covered in ages 11 to 14, hence why I value the o level questions for practice. They will come in useful for my 12 year old son's physics, chemistry and biology exams next month.

Btw, I checked your website, and wondered if I could purchase resources from you electronically. Please advise if it is possible.
