    Wasn't too bad. Last essay question no PCR vs bac was bit dodgy though.

    Cant believe there was nothing on succession, protein synthesis, punit grid etc

    That question and the energy contents questions caught me off guard other than that, was all goooood
    For the lactose question about carbohydrates, one before the lac operon question what did u put?

    I think maybe about 69/100 for 80UMS imo

    About why yogurt can be eaten by lactose intolerant people??
    Think i said the bacteria respires the lactose sugar in the milk so it doesnt effect them :confused:

    oh i put the use of a respiratory substrate reduces the concentration of cAMP so doesnt and acts as a tran something control thing lol and i wrote something else

    Ehm for some reason I wrote grasshoppers 0.o im craazy haha those questions really put me off, so im looking at around 65/100 to 72/100

    Yup same, last question on behaviour was cool, muscle questions were good, brain question was alright, pcr vs gene cloning was annoyng :/ 5 marks to say what enzyme etc was greeat! sigmoid curve was ok ehmmm thats it i guess

    i definetly lost marks on the energy questions put me off, but ehm for the farm question it did ask for reasons so i think they were all valid as long as u had a valid explanation

    The ammonia put me off with the lactose and penicillin.

    How does ammonia and the Penicillium relate?

    didn't mention ammonia as being a waste product, but hopefully that wouldn't be a mark, pcr/in vivo thing confused me a bit, but i reckon i scraped 5-6-7 marks on it, how did everyone find that then? could have been much worse

    the fungus uses lactose as a respiratory and uses ammonia as a source of nitrogen to synthesise amino acids and general protein synthesis

    pcr/vivo was *******s, couldnt think of enough things to say apart from obvious crap like, increased DNA amplification with PCR in the same given time as vivo, reduced costs with pcr since its automated, less labour intensive, requires skilled staff :/

    dont know how it went, it felt like a blag

    Ahhh I failed to say ammonia was used as a nitrogen source. I think I only scrapped 2 or 3 marks on the PCR rest seemed ok though

    Compared to the june 2010 paper, would you say it was harder or easier, or the same difficulty?

    I think it was easier, not much mind. I was better prepared this time though.
