    I said it took time for the cell to be repolarised so that V-G calcium channels would stay open for longer so there would be more exocytosis of insulin vesicles

    Oh Mann! Good luck!
    Thanks, I think it will be difficult but not impossible. It doesn't even matter what I do, I just have to do my best and its the grade boundaries that will decide. I don't need the A* for uni, but I think I've worked my butt off and deserve it for myself!

    Good luck to you too!

    I wrote kupffer cells; location: liver
    I wrote that then changed it to stem cells; bone marrow right at the end. Kupffer cells break them down, not make them.[/QUOTE]

    I wrote the same but without the corrections (((

    I don't think it was +ve feed back becuase the beta cells are not a target tissue of insulin. I thought it was a subtle hint at the refractory period in action potentials so said it took time for calcium ions to be pumped out of the membrane and potassium ions to re-establish the resting p.d.
    ohhh yeah i think you're right actually, why didn't i think of that

    Pathogen causes fever, which is increase in body temperature.

    Why does fever cause shivering.

    Now shivering increases body temperature further so that's not the reason. This question was so difficult! I put shivering means increased respiration to produce more ATP to for protein synthesis to produce antibodies to destroy pathogen. Was really unsure about this.

    hi thanks, i put that (from previous q) that fever causes increased sweating which could make u colder etc so you shiver to generate energy and increasy body temp? do u reckon it'd be okay

    That exam was so easy! Ocr please make exams harder so they're actually a challenge, and at least test on stuff which we won't know about lol!

    Said no one ever.

    After that I've waved goodbye to any hopes and dreams I had of a medical career.

    Ps: anyone who is a genius, don't make an unofficial markscheme. It will kill me even more.

    That's exactly what I put because I remember a past paper question where it spoke about b/T lymphocytes requiring atp

    I'm similar! I don't need it but I want it! Feel like I can do it after 100% GCSE and 93% AS too! Obv A2 is a lot harder but still I'm gonna try thank you!

    I also put that glucose is hydrolysed by glycolysis, my teacher said it would have been 'oxidised' but as I put by glycolysis I would probably get the mark

    Ahh yes that's a good point actually. I'm not sure, I think it depends what mood the examiners are in when writing the mark scheme for the answers to these suggest questions if I'm honest.

    Anyone know why peritoneal has to be done 4 times a day and haemodilaysis 3 a week?


    Posted from TSR Mobile
    Well the fluid reaches equilibrium with the body as there is no counter current system, so I think its because not all of the toxic chemicals are removed, in haemo they are all filtered out but in peri it has to be done repeatedly as concentrations decrease steadily. Its basically far less efficient and they lied, its being phased out as they think it might be dangerous!

    What cells make red blood cell and the location.
    I wrote kupffer cells; location: liver[/QUOTE]

    I wrote this as well. Most people in my class wrote hepatocytes and the liver but apparently it's stem cells and bone marrow, which makes sense!

    Thats not even in F214, and I don't think that its in AS in a big way either, thats just a biology thing, how were we supposed to know it would come up! Luckily I knew about the bone marrow from other reading but still it was really unfair even if it was only 1 mark.
    Yeah, I keep telling myself it was only one mark.

    I can't believe how little there was of the actual F214 content though. I was all prepared to be writing 6 markers on the loop of Henle and photophosphorylation!
