    Me!! Did it in 45 minutes. I thought it was quite easy and I reckon ive got at least an B possibly a A. Although I forgot to revise the watson and Crick thing so I lost marks but only 2. What answers did you get?

    I was partially finished within a half hour, went back and filled in some blanks. I believe I got the starch molecule question wrong, I just drew the glucose hexagon inside the enzyme. I think it should have been several glucose held together by bonds. Forgot to write lymphocytes for the white blood cell question, wrote antibodies though. Didn't write the urea was toxic, only that it has to be removed due to excess amino acid buildup. So that's probably a few marks lost. Overall I found it went well. I wrote Watson for double helix and different base shapes and Wilkins for X-ray model

    You likely done better than you think, chemistry will probably be bad for me. Havent looked at it in months.

    Aw crap I did the exact same thing as you for the molecule? Were was that in the textbook, I don't recall ever doing that. I also wrote antibodies aswell, I think i'll probably get 4 marks though. For the Urea one I just wrote that It was poisonous. I'm a bit worried now. The one that will bring me down is chemistry just because No matter how much I revise I always make a mistake.

    Hopefully, I can't stop thinking about it lool
    We have a bit of time to look over chemistry though

    I'm just guessing for the starch one. Isn't starch made up of many glucose cells combined? Oh well only 2 marks if we did do it wrong.

    Wish I had to have written urea is poisonous/toxic, too late now! :P

    Chemistry isn't good for me, I've glimpsed at papers and they are keen on colours and observations; ill have to learn those well.

    That simple our chemistry teacher gave us a formula to remember it.

    Group 1-3 Solids are Colourless.
    Groups 1-3 Solutions are white
    Copper salts in solution are blue
    Anhydrous Copper sulphate is white
    Hydrated Copper sulphate is blue.

    Thats all you really need to know for colours.

    I assume you mixed solids and liquids up in your post above. That's quite helpful, never noticed that before. Any other useful tricks for chemistry or even physics?

    Not really, you just have to learn it all. Although for Balancing I used to be crap at it but now I'm ok, If you draw wee circles below each element then that can help you.

    Then for Metals and acids reactions there is a acronym MASH which stands for

    Metal + Acid --- Metal Salt + Hydrogen.

    Physics is easy all you really do is learn the equations and the electricity things. I think you could get a B without learning anything but equations.

    If you look in the mark scheme for transpiration all you had to do was write that except change it for temperature. Well at least thats what I did. I messed it up though.

    I don't remember this one at all. Was it the the (tomato?) question on photosynthesis?

    No it was the question on plant transpiration and how it is affected by Temperature. Maybe you did the modular one?
