    haha no..... ours was not easier, they may me liked topics but were NOT nice questions. I feel our papers were of equal difficulty
    I'm sorry I didn't mean to imply there was any difference in the difficulty of the papers only that I would have liked for those topics to come up xx

    Same! Those were my favourite topics. I found the last diversity question threw me a bit. They gave an index of 10.24 but I thought it couldn't exceed one 😕 but the essay question wasn't too bad though

    Me too , I put my answer saying that it's incorrect because diversity index can only range between 0 and 1 , not sure if that's what they wanted though

    I said that as well but said otherwise the biodiversity was higher. I'm glad that I'm not the only one who got thrown by that question

    I said the same but because it was worth 2 marks I wasn't sure if that classed at 2 points

    It was the banded snails one ; it was a 3 marker. No one in my school understood what the hell was going on

    Oh yeah, honestly I have no idea the whole thing is a blur now, I just know I answered the monkey aids wrong and the last question wrong.
    The maths questions were nice though

    It's quite ironic how the "what conclusions can be drawn" questions have become as/more difficult than the science questions.

    I had those, I got confused when it said t 3 sig figs so I just guessed 5310 instead of 5312
