    6/20 or 12/20?

    Surely if you are bad at essays then you would be bad at the entire knowledge side of the course? Essays are just writing any facts that you can remember...

    80/110 rounds up to 73% which is normally an A. Unless the grade boundaries move up a bit, that's an A

    God what a disaster this exam was for me, I ended up just leaving it before the essays. Felt like death.

    Just as I was about to leave the house for the exam (and I was already running late) my dog started squealing, so I had to make sure that he was ok before I left (he damaged a ligament in his leg). I ended up running for half an hour to get to school, went into the exam 10 minutes late with sweat dripping off me (it was so warm outside). When I sat down I was so tired and loaded with hay fever I couldn't even think about anything and I ended up missing out half of the questions and the essays.

    I've had A's in both prelims and in every class test, then in the final exam I completely blew it and I don't even think I'll get a C.

    Damn Biology.

    For 21, the last 4 months is 5 - 9. At 9 months it is 400 and at 5 it is 250 so the difference is 150. You then divide than by the 250 at the start of the 4 month period and times by 100 to get 60% which was B.
    for that questions i ended up with 63%...but i worked backwards to find which answer was closest to the 250 difference...and it was 60 so yay

    My stm must be above average because for the 48 hours after I'm read my notes its almost as if I have the word documents as pictures in my brain. :P

    You too. (I'm assuming you're doing it, unless you're just trolling those poor people who have exams.)
    yeah i did higher human biology...i always seem to end up on the normal biology thread though:/

    Probably not, unless it was a 2 mark question where you'll get 1 mark

    Yeah, you could say crossing over or random assortment.

    Despite its morbid nature, do you think it would be acceptable to answer the control question with identical experiment with a dead snail ?

    with no snail/dead snail/glass beads/plasticene
