Here is where you will find all my Biology GCSE SLOP booklets.
I’ve taken the excellent work done by a large group of biology teachers and updated them to include:
- More questions (over 100 in each booklet)
- More maths in biology (graphs, percentage increases, standard form etc..)
- More literacy support (refutation texts , graphic organisers)
- Interleaving from prior knowledge
As far as sequencing these follow the AQA spec. Even though there are times when the sequencing might be better another way I have kept to the spec to ensure coverage. I wont be offended if you cut and paste until your heart is content to suite your route through.
If the content is broadly similar for the Combined and Biology you will find one booklet with HT content and triple identified. When there are large differences I have made two versions of the booklet.
They are far from perfect but this V1.0 is my starting point for this year. I will aim to review and extend them as the year progresses.
Feel free to download and use. If you spot a mistake please let me know. I would think the formatting might need to be checked if you use a different version of word or google docs as, in my experience, things seem to move about a bit.
I haven’t got any answers completed yet. So if you write some please let me have a copy.

A huge thanks to the amazing teachers who I have proudly stolen from:
