Q. How much time should be spent on one question on average?

Most of the questions in the biology portion of the test are simply textbook lines and are quite easy. So you should spend no more than 20 seconds, on average, on each question in this portion and save time for the rest of the paper.

Q. Do I strictly need to stick to the UHS syllabus and not do the extra topics given in textbook?

Yes, stick to the topics given in the UHS syllabus and learn them in the best possible way. But it’s better if you just give a read to the UHS-Syllabus related extra topics and highlight the important points so you might not need to read those extra topics again and again.

Q. The multiple choice questions given at the end of the chapter are important or not?

Yes, they are important. Do give them a read at least once and note down the important points in the chapter along with the related topic so you’ll not need to go through the exercise questions again and again.

Q. Are some of the MCQs in Biology portion are unseen or from A-levels?

Not really. The difficult thing about Biology is that the syllabus is very lengthy. The MCQs are not that tough if you know the textbook stuff well enough. On your exam day, you need to have the material of all your 6 textbooks (2 for Biology, Physics, and chemistry each), vocabulary words and English grammar; all in your mind at the same time. So the actual issue is not that the MCQs are out of syllabus, it’s just that the syllabus for the test is too lengthy to be retained in mind altogether.

Q. Is book reading sufficient for Biology portion?

Yes. But remember quality>quantity. You can rely on your textbooks only but that is when you have left no stone unturned to cram your textbooks. However, it would be even better if you practice past paper MCQs as well.

Q. How many days should be given to Biology preparation?

Considering the amount of syllabus of Biology and the importance of textbook materials, you should give almost one month to Biology preparation. Do give at least one day to each chapter, since you guys have sufficient time at this point.
