You have to mention the advantages of statins ( reduces likelyhood of heart attacks), advantages of cholesterol blockers, disadvantages of statins, disadvantages of cholesterol blockers and form your own opinion/conclude which one you thought is the better drug.
I think i made a mistake with putting a general conclusion as i wrote something along the lines of 'using drugs such as 'statins....blockers' are better than not taking drugs as the benefits outweigh the health risks' which is prob 1-2 marks dropped.

I reckon the grade boundaries are going to be quite high, 52+ ish for A*. I personally found it quite easy and many people in my school did too.
What did you guys put for 'name an organ that produces hormones?'
I put pituitary gland but thats not a organ
The pituitary gland IS an organ, and the question was to EVALUATE when you evaluate you have to come to a general CONCLUSION. putting something as short as, using ... far outweights the risks of taking ...
Like your going to get 6 marks with something as short as that, i think you need to do some aqa specimen papers! evaluation answers must include 'pros' (advantages), 'cons' (disadvantages) and a conclusion!
