    I wanted to know how many experiments do we have to know for the whole spec, by experiments i mean the PAGS aswell as the experiments within like the content.

    Also can you tell me like what do we have to know about these experiments, do we have to know how to do the experiment or...?

    Also for the exam how many marks will be based on experiments?

    There will be 2 papers. Breadth and Depth
    Breadth: 2 sections A and B. section A will be short questions e.g. multiple choice. Section B will be 1-6 mark questions, maybe one 7 or 8 marker.
    Depth: Long answer questions, these are more likely to have the processes in them. e.g. "Explain the process of cell division" and it also is likely to have more experiment related stuff.

    But don't count anything out ofc.

    Pretty much any biological process, experiment or biological test can come up. We also dont have any idea what could be in the exam as its a new spec.
