    This exam was awful! Really unfair I think, way too many problem solving questions and not enough on knowledge. I've been getting A's all year AND and in all of the past papers I've done (all of them since 2001). An A in higher biology was my condition to my first choice university but I think this exam has sent that right down the drain. :/

    Does anybody have the question paper they could scan?
    I didn't have enough time to check over my answers so that would really put my mind at ease.

    I was going to put that, but then I put something about a good food supply so they'd eat more and store it as fat for energy when they migrate. The reason I decided against putting it was cause I thought they layed eggs, but I don't know...

    This is correct = you could also say it increases the humidity inside the curled leaf which reduces transpiration rate.
    I simply put reduced air movements which reduced wind speed thus transpiration rate lowered and less water lost.. does that suffice?

    people were putting traps layer of air which i remember being correct, was mine also?

    For the succession essays and then monitoring wild populations, was indicator species, endangered species, food and raw materials and pest species all relevant?

    it didn't make sense to me, it was like the top bit was it inhibited alot and at the beginning it wasn't but no answer seemed to fit, they all seemed wrong.

    i guessed A at the end as it was better than leaving it out, that biology teacher seems to think thats right

    What was it being inhibited? I don't remember what the question was at all, but I put B and I think that's wrong

    It's so frustrating, I feel like I've mucked up all up super hard work I know, that would be really helpful. Hope someone puts the answers up soon...
