In this resource megaguide, we’ve listed a whole heap of resources you might find useful in your HSC Biology revision. 💯

If you’re keen to subscribe to our regular HSC newsletter and stay on top of all of our HSC resources, your best bet is to make an ATAR Notes account:





A great place to start for HSC study is our range of free notes! Generously uploaded by those who have come before you, these notes are by students, for students.

For HSC Biology notes specifically, go here. Note that you will need to be logged in to your ATAR Notes account to download the notes – otherwise you’ll just be met with a blank screen!

When the time comes, it would be amazing if you could upload your own notes, too – even through the year!



Also uploaded to our free notes section are all of our HSC Biology lecture slides from previous free lectures. These lectures are specifically designed to not only provide an overview of the course material, but also give tips and tricks from a recent graduate high-achiever.

To download the Biology lecture slides, go here (and remember, you need to be logged in!).



If you’re keen on study videos, you’re in luck! We also have a series of excellent revision videos on concepts you can brush up on. Here’s the very first video in the series:

But you can find the full series – plus videos for lots of other HSC subjects – on our free videos page. If you like, you can also subscribe to our YouTube channel to make sure you’re the first to know about new videos – we’re uploading new content all the time!



We have a dedicated section on the ATAR Notes Forums for HSC Biology discussion, where you can get help for any content or questions you’re struggling with. Free help from current and past students – we really recommend using this as much as you can!

Join the community, get involved, and see your marks improve. 📈  The forum also has a heap of useful content guides and discussions, such as (note that some may be from previous syllabuses):

 HSC Biology questions thread
 HSC Biology resources thread
 How to get a Band 6 in HSC Biology
 HSC Biology question bank – new syllabus
 How to go about studying for any science
 80 hours until Biology: the final gameplan
 HSC Bio guide 1: maintaining a balance
 HSC Bio guide 2: blueprint of life
 HSC Bio guide 3: the search for better health
 The night before Biology
 My approach to answering higher order questions (with an example)


We’re always publishing new HSC articles for you to sink your teeth into. Here are some of our favourite HSC Biology-related articles from time gone by:

→ What to expect in HSC Biology
→ HSC Biology – how to get a Band 6
→ HSC Biology: how to ace the 8 marker questions

We recommend checking out our HSC study guides for a range of subjects, but particularly for HSC Biology if you’re looking for a helping hand!

Our HSC Biology Complete Course Notes contain everything you need to know for your assessment tasks and exams, written from the perspective of a past high-achieving student.

With a summary of key concepts, and clear explanations of every section of the syllabus, this book focuses on clarifying your understanding of all the examinable material, so you can focus on maximising your marks.

Our HSC Biology Topic Tests contain both originally-written practice questions, as well as questions sources from past NESA exams. Each of these questions also has an accompanying solution rich with detail and specifically designed to help improve performance in exam-style questions.
