    it's doable , the enzyme question in the breadth paper was easy. Some of the maths stuff is weird , but if you do A level maths you should be fine. there's more multiple choice questions...

    Oh wow. Thanks

    Is there answers?
    There is but there is no free preview http://www.biozone.co.uk/products/oc...model-answers/

    Are you talking about the practise questions at the end of each topic or the summary questions at the end of each page
    Each topic but when learning do the summary questions

    I find WJEC (Eduqas) really difficult :/
    I get A's and B's in class tests but then I get C's and U's on the mocks

    does anyone know where to find the 2015 specimen papers for this module?

    My teacher has made us look at CIE exam papers (because there's no chance we'd be getting anymore new OCR papers)
    - they're so similar to the new OCR specification, you should try them; they have a lot on practicals and statistical tests- and the structured is good to look at as well.

    We did mocks in breadth and depth and everyone in my class got U apart from 3 who got E even though we're all quite confident with the content, the multiple choice on breadth are impossible all the answers are the same hope the grade boundries will be lower this year??
