    When are you allowed to put the answers up cause someone needs to do it already!! I need a B as I have a conditional to do Podiatry and I have absolutely no idea how it went! HELP!
    Last year you could drop 58 marks out of 130 and still get a B and that was an easy paper! So this year maybe you could drop even 60, and that's almost half! I'm sure you've got it

    Overall the paper could have been a little worse :s

    BUT I did notice a few things, where was the usual SAN & AVN node heart question?Nothing on infertility which I dont think has came up in ages! Nothing about RBC...

    And the Q1 for the essays was good but the part 2 was hell itself! D: I attempted the meosis one and the liver one. For the liver I wrote about deamination, detoxification, gave brief descriptions of both, bile acting as an emulsifier...any of that sound right?
    Also what did people write for the one about the gran and baby being more vunerable to hypothermia?

    If its the one I'm thinking about it was below the diagram and it asked you to name Y (or something) which I put down seminal vesicles, then for a function of it I put down fructose and that it provides enegry needed for the sperm to swim. I think you could also put down about prostaglands and how that helps the uters was walls contract (or something like that) hope that is of some help to you
    Yeah I wrote about prostaglandins as I didn't know whether the seminal vesicle was a structure on its own :lol:

    Thanks.

    I'm so glad you've said about your first essay because that's exactly what I wrote! did you say anything about rbcs?
    and the baby has a larger sa:vol ratio so loses heat more quickly and the elderly persons temperature regulating mechanisms are not very effective, sound about right?

    There weren't that many calculations either :s

    haha the gran and baby picture made me giggle a bit, I put her metabolism won't be as high so she won't generate as much heat, you?

    Considering you need last year 68% for an A and 78% + for an A*. This year, my teacher said that he questions were worded weird and unexpecting but overall she said it should've been easy. But by seeing all the feedback from everyone that sat it yesterday. It didn't seem to straight forward and easy therefore I think and hope that the SQA will maybe drop the pass mark for an A this year.

    If you get a B this year they might offer you conditions for an A! I thought the kidney essay woulda been better but i did the liver one and I'm not sure if it was right! what did you do for the first essay?
