    Our teachers have said NADA to us about the article - I even had biology today and they didn't mention it ><
    The edexcel website only allows teachers to download the article, urghhh. This Honest, what do you make of the article? Is it 17 pages long like the last one? :|

    Hey guys,

    the article is 8 pages and a bit.
    I haven't read it yet... can't be arsed... it's so long :sigh:
    The main idea is about using your own body fat to make you thin.
    - having a brief overview, it's about health/fitness/obesity stuff like that...this can be linked heavily with unit 1 :sigh:

    yeah I'm doing unit 5. My teacher has not mentioned having the article yet but I'm not sure I want it if it's about boring stuff about obesity and health :/.

    plus we're not even nearly through our topics. haven't even finished respiration .

    I really like respiration but my teacher goes through it so incredibly slowly :/ almost every module this happens and we end up running out of time to learn everything :confused:

    We've been told by our teacher to read it once every week to beat the information into us :sigh:

    If the article is linked to unit 1, that's good for me as I am retaking it in the summer. Last years article was about the 2012 Olympics, I don't get why they didn't do that this year...

    Hi all,

    I just had a end of topic 7 test and it went really badly, so I'm starting to get a bit worried. Does anyone have an revision tips for Topic 7?
    Notes summarising the 4 stages of repiration would be great?
    Or the process of controlling ventilation?
    I just don't get the full process and the stages we need to know :'(
    Thanks alot, all help would be great!

    ew. lovely. Atleast this is 30 marks i should pick up fairly easily. There hasn't been a year in the past 10 where the bio department hasn't guessed the exact/ similar questions to the ones which came up.

    Reading it now, so far it's mentioned obesity, brown adipose tissue, white adipose tissue, cultural and social issues about weight, it's also mentioning brain activity about fMRI scanners being used to analyse sub-conscious feelings about body image.

    So I think learning Unit one and Unit eight are a must
