    Hi everyone,

    I was wondering if anyone had any thoughts on particular topics that are likely to come up, given the past trend?

    Well the apoplastic/symplastic pathway hasn't come up yet so that maybe one to look out for. Also maybe a six marker on meiosis.

    Know your How Science Works stuff. Easy marks to gain or drop.
    Have a feeling that Fish Gills will come up.
    I also have a feeling that there will be heavy marks on DNA stuff including Hybridisation and/or Meiosis.
    Just do as many past paper questions as you can and you should do well

    There's always one about how mutations can make a non functional protein...
    I reckon there's going to be one about index of diversity

    Doing papers that aren't related to the current specification won't help, might want to try and sort your grammar out though for a few extra marks
