For question 2, why are you getting D as you have to multiply 0.8micrometres by 1000 to convert to milimetres?
Hey, I thought the Data Interpretation (1st question of section B) Was really difficult! Then it kinda got ok, a lot of it i thought was ok!
Multiple choice question 13 was C im sure! Anyone will to do the paper and upload answers? hehe

Yeah something like that, I got A like you, but its definately D

No, but it can't be cos a micrometer is 1x10-6 metres and a millimetre is 1x10-3 metres so it's got to be 0.8x1000 = 800. can someone explain how it can be 0.0008?
Can anyone tell me what kinda stuff they wrote about for the first essay question?

I discussed:

Niche/Realised Niche/ Fundamental Niche.

Competion definition/"-/-"/Exploitation Competition/Resource Partitioning/Interspecific/Intraspecific/

I forgot the name of "interference competiion" but just described it.

I also made up examples, hopefully the markers are told "any appropiate"
I am such a dumb f**k, i read question 5 wrong, even though it said STRUCTURAL for C I thought it said STORAGE and then thought why are C and D the same?, F**K sake

What one was it? C or D?
I thought it was divide by 1000?
There is 1000 micrometres in a millimetre, right?

So 0.8 micrometres would only be 0.0008 millimetres.

Well 0.8um is the same as 0.0008 mm because you divide by 1000 not multiply. It can't be 800mm because 800mm is 80cm

I put D but i'm not sure if I was right or not
Ok, thanks guys. I was thinking about it the wrong way round.

These are my multiple choice answers, but I've probably got quite a few wrong:

BDDBDCABABCDCABABCDCBDACB

But I was pretty unsure with a few like 4, 5, 9, 13, 14, 15, 16... never mind, you get the point
I'm pretty sure q8 is C because if 24/80 are thymine. This means 30% are T and 30% are A so 20% are C and G.
An q14 is C because you need to 100+67=167kj
And I think the rest are correct.

What did everyone put for the DMD question? The individual did have it or didn't?

I said they had it because the fragment was lighter and moved further than the control. Also, the moving further than the control meant it was lighter, and DMD is when there is deletion so this would be lighter

What did you put? And what did you say to the question, "HOw are specific gene fragments identified in this procedure?"
I said the the individual did have DMD
