    new specification
    It's all on the science lab aqa website
    There are specimen papers

    They also give you hints and tips with Quality of Written Communication as well as samples.
    If anyone's worrying about the 6mark question have a look at some of the sample answers and marks awarded for the continuous prose questions (6mark) .
    Hope this helps!!!
    I've been doing some papers, and I was wondering if 45/60(75%) is a good mark on the C1 Specimen paper? Is that an A? :confused:

    I'm panicking for tomorrow :/ :eek:

    Lol 45/60 depends on how hard the test tomorrow is gonna be. If it is hard the A* boundary may drop to even 44-45 which in this case Biology most likely will. If it is easy it will ussualy stay around 47-48-49 for an A*.

    if I'm not mistaken it's a reduction reaction because carbon displaces the oxygen in the iron oxide compound, leaving iron

    Well, a monomer is smaller and make a polymer through polymerisation
    sounds complicated but basically loads of the small molecules, monomers, join togther to form longer chains called polymers. The double bond 'opens up' or breaks to form the polymer
    Hope it helps, and have you got any tips for remebering everything because i am so nervous i will forget everything! Also, what do you think the 6 mark question will be on?? Thanks

    I sat the AQA Geography today and just like the biology, the majority of the questions where focused on minor parts of the syllabus & hey were also ambiguous. So, I'm dreading if they do the same with this exam :/

    LjWol, btw for the previous question its better if you say displacement reaction since this is what happens in general (my opinion). And the difference between a monomer and a polymer is like this. Imagine each monomer is a paperclip, by chaining all the paperclips (monomers) up we can make a polymer (a chain of paperclips) which can be used for plastics. A monomer in general is just the same as an alkene (nothing different *but only use the word monomer when talking about polymers). When we chain up monomers/alkenes in a polymerisation reaction we create a polymer with many of the monomers. I hope this kind of introduction helped. But realistically you should have know this from January already

    I am actually really confident that the 6 mark question is either going to be about continental drift/earthquakes or crude oil, biodiesel, cracking, ethanol etc.

    Don't worry about the 6 mark question, you will get the mark if you use specialist and appropriate language with good punctuation throughout. The same 6 mark question could be 3 marks in another past paper so don't worry about it but double check if you answered it correct at the end!

    I have no idea about the 6 mark, but I'm thinking that something to do with bioleaching & photomining will come up!
