Not expecting many replies to this thread lol. Human Biology threads are normally empty :l..
I though it went quite well. Tbh, I found it easier than the past papers; they had some hard synoptic questions in those. Most of the stuff that came up I managed to revise properly aha. How'd you find it?
this exam was pretty straightforward, shame there were no questions on ADH or TRH. loads of suggest questions though like why do alcohol deaths decrease with age for driving accidents - think i put something like older people drink less, or alcohol doesn't affect them as much, or older people don't drink and drive as they are more experienced. Loved the section about colourblindness as i am colourblind lol

Loved the 7 marker on light hitting the rod cells!! I learnt that so thoroughly the night before.... Think it went ok... Has everyone got a rough grade for their extended investigation off teachers??
I got 37/40 pre-moderation. I'm just hoping they don't reduce it :/

Yehh i didnt think it was too difficult. Anyone know roughly how many UMS 28/40 will be for the coursework? and which questions did people find most difficult?
According to last years grade boundaries, 28 would have given you a B grade (27 for B) and an A would require 30/40. The ones that I know I lost marks in was in the synoptic questions *facepalm* .. the one where Pyruvate>Glucose (Im guessing I got only 1/2 marks) and the Calcium ions in muscle contraction question (1/2 again).
