    Thanks. I found it but was just correcting my original post. On Question 7, what did you mean by 1+3 marks? I left that as 3 marks and made the rib cage question (Q2) 4 marks. I remember it being 4 marks...

    Anyway, I editing the original post. Only two questions left! I've made them bold...
    Why is water taken up by osmosis in the plant and why are ions taken up by active transport (4 marks)
    Answer:
    Higher conc of water in soil than in root, osmosis works along a conc gradient so can be used to transport water in this case.
    Higher conc of ions in roots, (therefore no diffusion as diffusion only works along conc gradient), instead active transport is needed as active transport can work against a conc gradient.

    a) Graph question (3 marks)

    On the second graph there was a 1 marker- (why it was lower I think), and a 3 marker about glucagon
    I thought the rib cage question was 3 marks, not sure though...

    Thanks! I've edited it in. What about the one explaining the graph/equation?

    What was the maths explanation question about? I think this might of only been 1 mark?

    I'm going to going to bed soon.

    Let me know if I need to edit anything. PM me if possible- I wouldn't be able to check through everything since I've got exams coming up and I'm revising for those...

    Hi, this is keeping me awake. In my previous exams I got:

    Unit 1: 92
    Unit 2: 93
    ISA : 36/50

    I completely mind blanked during B3 and looking at the mark scheme I have got around 30/60. Was wondering what I would need to get to get an A?

    Considering that Your ISA UMS is 72 - Just double the mark - no one is aware of the definite mark scheme - but hopefully it is higher.

    Your total at the moment is 257

    You need 320 for an A

    SO... 320-257 is 63

    So you need 63+ for an A

    No problem! I'm pretty sure we'll get it done soon. We've only got one question left if we're not missing any...

    I understand that, just any idea of raw mark needed for 63+?

    Bear in mind that this mark scheme doesn't include all the marking points and additional guidance that the official one will, so you probably got more than 30

    Whether it is oxygenated or deoxygenated
