Welcome to the Biology section of CramNow, a collection of hundreds of FREE, self marking, AQA A Level Biology multiple choice questions. Although they are organised following the AQA A Level Biology Specification, there will obviously be a lot of overlap in content with the other exam boards such as OCR.
You'll need to sign up for an account to access the questions.
A Level Biology Students
There is significant evidence that the best way to learn is to answer A Level Biology questions from memory. These quizzes are designed to help you recall your A Level Biology, in quick, multichoice quizzes. You need to register, then you can start completing the quizzes, On completion of each A Level Biology quiz, you will receive an email with your score, and details of incorrect answers. Before you start please be aware:
- The quizzes are around 20 - 25 questions each.
- They are challenging: there is no point only testing easy content you know.
- They are timed : You only have 12mins 30 seconds per quiz.
- You can only complete each quiz once a week. This limit will be lifted over summer, so you can maximise your revision prior to the exams in September this year.
- Your feedback email will contain grade boundaries. These are based on the average grade distribution of Y13 at the point of their A Level Biology exam, and are therefore aspirational.
If you forget your login details there are password reset and ‘username reset’ options at the bottom of the login page : https://biology.cramnow.com/login
A Level Biology Teachers
SELF MARKING HOMEWORK: These challenging multiple choice quizzes generate an email with a mark and a grade which is sent to the student. This results email can then be forwarded to their A Level Biology teacher. This means that they can also be set as self-marking, graded HOMEWORK, during lockdown as evidence that they have completed their independent study.
PLENARIES / STARTERS: A Level Biology class sizes are growing nationally, and many classes now have over 20 students. These quizzes can be projected onto the board, then students can take it in turns to answer verbally and there are enough to go around everyone and show progress for all students.
SIGNING UP STUDENTS INDEPENDENTLY: There are instructions that show how to do this under ‘Getting Started’ on the top right of the above tool bar. Students will need an email address, from which they can forward their results email to teachers. Their school email is the obvious choice for this, but as cramnow.com is a new website, you may need to contact your IT Administrators to allow the results emails through the spam filter as it is undoubtedly set to ‘Unbelievably High’.
SIGNING UP STUDENTS WHEN AT SCHOOL: We envision at the start of the next school year ( whenever that is), that we will get students to register en-mass during their first lesson. The log-in page has ‘password reset’ and ‘username reset’ functions at the bottom for when they forget.
Please note that this is a work in progress. We are adding new quizzes all the time so please check back regularly.
