I got chemistry (F335) the next day too.
Although chem has been going better than biology (strange, as i find chem harder). But im so desperate to get AAB, im with the rest of you. Im so fearful of this exam its unreal. Thank god itll be over soon, ive been so stressed about this forever!!!

I imagine the grade boundaries will be quite low for this exam though, because of the large amount of content

What do you reckon about the genetics stuff. I'am finding it difficult to get my head around that atm and for some reason I'm struggling with Meiosis as well. The nature stuff's piss though- I hope loads of that comes up.

i have seen in a mark schemes; credit correct marking points from diagrams.

Does that mean you get a mark.

What does AVP mean in mark schemes, i have been doing some questions and i have seen that sign. What does it mean.

AVP is usually Aliens Vs Predator, but in marking terms it means Any Valid Point, :eek3:

Yeo but im doing Germany, Kaiser to Fuhrer. Now i know why people dont do both biology and history a levels, the amount of stuff to learn is immense!

Falcon91 - I find chemistry harder but dont have to revise as much as i do for biology to get a decent grade
Thanx TSR STAR ooh thats almost as bad as mine 3 exams in a row. Good luck to you too.
At least I have 7 days to revise for the retake :woo:
