    Do you have some more essay questions?
    try these:-

    -The Causes of Variation and its biological importance

    -How Microscopes have contributed to our understanding of living organisms

    -The Factors which influence the concentration of glucose in the blood

    We couldn't, it doesn't cover the specification broadly enough so wouldn't be an essay question.

    We've got section 3.5.8 to go and we're done wooooo

    Only the EMPA and revision to go soon
    :eek: We've done a whole two topics (although I have one terrible teacher, we spent last lesson learning about cystic fibrosis and not for gene therapy and the one before redoing some Biol 1 for no reason. )

    I think it's probably because we only took a week off learning unit 5 in january to revise lol

    it is horrible essay question i've to admit, it was one of the P/P questions
    if we had this essay we need to dig deep and try to make LINKS from different angles on the spec.
    this is how i'll approach it
    -describe the structures and functions of light and electron microscope.
    -describe the structures and function of different organelles produced from electron microscope,
    -choose an organelle such as mitochondria explain Glycolysis--> Link Reaction--> ETC.
    -Nuclei-DNA, Trnscription--> Translation--> Ribosomes-->formation of protein
    -Chloroplast-light dependent and independent
    -Neurones-Describe both neurones, How Resting Potential is maintained, AP, How impulse is transmitted both non & myelinated sheath, across synapse, Neuromascular Junction.

    you can go on & on, without microscope we'll never had this info.

    What do you need help with?

    I was supposed to do an essay (1000 words) on the ethics of using animals for recombinant DNA technology, and ended up writing 1100 words on Diabetes and insulin
    I was suppose to give a 3 minute presentation on diabetes and insulin, ended up spending 30 minutes on my presentation.

    Half of that stuff you listed is so indirectly related to microscopes, I can't see how it would score many marks. It seems we can just write anything from any of units.

    thats how essays are, if you don't comprehend the title try to make connections across the spec rather than leaving empty.I would be happy if you chip in and correct my mistakes.
