Join our expert tutor, Zohaib as he provides you with Biology IB-Mock Revision Tuition. See our detailed Curriculum breakdown below.

Day 1:

Being able to distinguish prokaryotes and eukaryotes. Membrane models and transport mechanisms are thoroughly discussed. Students will understand differences in micro and macromolecules with a focus on water properties. Condensation reactions and hydrolysis mechanisms among a few molecules are discussed. DNA structure and processes like translation, transcription is detailed in length. Students will have simulations and diagrammatical tasks to write structure. Going deeper into nuclear knowledge will discuss further mitosis and meiosis. How genes and alleles have a role in inheritance and how mutations can cause abnormalities. DNA technologies like profiling, sequencing, and recombination will be elaborated.

We will review P1 and P2 style questions tests for all core chapters
