    I put down DNA base sequence and Protein synthesis, I'm not sure about embryology since it was based on molecular evidence and for the diff species one I'll probs get 1 mark for it coz all I said was mate them and see for infertile offspring
    embryology is molecular there was same question on June 2010 paper

    Don't think anyone has the paper but the page before on this thread has all the questions in the exam and the marks they were written in a comment by me, should substitute for it, lol

    That should be a solid A, personally I found the exam alright but I know lots who struggled and maybe others in the country did so hopefully the A boundary will be in the mid 60's

    I think for an A it will be from 63-65, it was a challenging paper with a lot of unfamiliar like situations which I think would have caught people. A lot of people have even said it was the hardest f212 paper (I was kind of surprise with that seeing as there wasn't a lot of ecology).

    F211 is difficult to say, that too had A LOT of application as well but a lot of people found it doable, saying that I think an A will be 43-44.

    Hmm i cant remember the questions specifically, but when I did January 2011 as practise, supposedly the hardest paper, I didn't need to think much about what I was writing, it felt like a regurgitation of what I learnt lol. For this paper I definetly had to stop and think about some questions and link different areas of the syllabus a lot more. I think I got around 79 to 83 in this and about 46 to 49 in F211. Hate biology to be honest :/ Need an A overall but my practical scores are awful so need about 135-150ums in F212 and about 75-90 ums in f211, have f214 but only have a day left to finish the syllabus ://

    Yeah, that's the question which I wrote 'Suitable Control' for and tbh Biology isn't like Chem or Maths it's hard to make a mark scheme for it, people can write so many different answers to the same question

    Hey, I'm fine thanks, how about you?

    That question was weird, I think it was along the lines of the enzyme not being able to be used for medical purposes or maybe research purposes, I wrote research but I think medicines would be more likely to be correct. Don't think your answer would be right if you just wrote 'loss of metabolic process' alone.
