    Does anybody have any revision notes or sites to use to revise for B3, as I'm finding it literally impossible to find anything online which helps me revise.
    I prefer having text but having to answer questions as you go along.
    I'd usually use Sam Learning but they only have B3 revision for bio-technology and its very bland at that
    Thanks.

    I had to guess the swan question and the cool water one

    apparently the swan one was: to make sure they realise it is a member of the same species, and to make sure it was a suitable/healthy male of which they can pass their genes onto healthy offspring

    Proper reckon I failed that exam.
    It didn't seem much like B3 though, it seemed more like B2 but with a bit of common knowledge afterwards!

    i think i put something stupid like: they are monogamous; therefore they have to show off their best features in order to attract a fit female, so that when they mate, the offspring can obtain the best genes.
    i think the point i was trying to make was that they only have one partner, and if the partner didn't have good genes then the majority of offspring will also have these 'un-useful' genes. i don't know :/ just a good old guess
    I only liked the bio-technology questions

    Um grade boundaries will really depend on how well everyone did this year..I'm guessing around 50/60 for an A* (plus or minus a couple of marks). P3 was quite hard, C3 was ridiculously easy!
