    seriously how did people flop on the seal question it was so simple and easy. Only you had to say was:

    1) thick coat - prevents heat loss by radiation

    2) no hairs on the skin - so no layer of insulating air is trapped.

    3) Increased metabolism.

    What?

    Are you on about how it is adapted to regulate body temp? Because I'm pretty sure the question was about how it is adapted to spend long periods of time underwater..

    he didnt write podocytes though hence my answer. but youre also right.
    He said he nearly wrote podocytes, yes I know he didn't write it.

    Well some people interpreted differently and didn't find it "piss easy". I guess we are not all as clever as you.

    Who knows! The question said the tissue lining the PCT. So some people (inc. me) thought it meant the surrounding tissue, and others thought it was the epithelia.
    maybe its one of those q's where theres mutliple acceptable answers. it was only a one marker werent it?

    i cocked up on that last question cos i ran out of time.

    I didn't realise it was the synoptic question and explained it through ECT and more oxygen for electron acceptors. I hope I get at least one mark though.

    It was one mark, so I simply put down counter current mechanism.

    I like to write too much in exams. Thats why I put about 5 things for the seal question, they can't take marks away on questions like those, so increase my chance of getting marks.

    Thats what I thought. The question was DEF about long time underwater.

    the way i felt after walking out of this exam was similar to the way i felt after that crappy F212 back in june. apparently this years jan paper for F212 was piss easy.
    F212 resit was 80% chemistry- easy if you happen to do chemistry...

    the question is obviously saying how can the seal survive under the cold water submersed for long hours.

    I swear some of that stuffs not in the specification!

    Like how does temp affect transmission speed - that is NOT in the specification. I checked

    But I just said speeds up diffusion basically
