By and large GCSE students like puzzles, and as such offering puzzles which are related to the syllabus can stimulate and motivate students who might be less stimulated by traditional test formats.
Better still, if the puzzles cover much of the course, they can be used throughout the two years of GCSE study.
It is with these thoughts in mind that the GCSE Puzzler: Biology was produced. It contains some fifty puzzles divided into seven groups: cell biology, classification, human biology, human diseases, plant biology, variation, inheritance and evolution, and finally environment.
As the puzzles all come in copiable format (meaning they can be photocopied or put on the school learning platform) and can be used over and over again. A complete set of answers is provided separately.
As a result this book complements the more traditional tests, as well as providing a varied approach to in-course revision for GCSE students.
GCSE Puzzler: Biology covers all the main areas of GCSE biology up to the standard of A* grade level. There is also a medical emphasis within some of the tests, and it will thus be of particular benefit to those who wish to pursue a career in medicine or other health-related professions.
