    But you got 87UMS?:O

    Yea, all my exams were very different in january

    That's what really worries me about summer

    I think the exam boards are really doing there best to make exams as different as possible from past papers from some absurd reasons

    It really sucks ass
    I didn't get 87 UMS I got around 60, which means if I go up 3 or so marks it pushes me up to a B, my technique was wrong in the exam, teachers said I had the knowledge, but I didn't apply the technique. They found 3-5 marks though when they marked my script so hopefully it will go up. I used the OCR book for that January exam and I reckon that's where I dropped my grade, the way it explains stuff in that book is silly. The CGP book is the way forward.

    We should ask each other questions based on revision for F211 and F212

    Prophase, Metaphase, Anaphase, Telophase (PMAT)

    Correct

    • It provides support for the xylem vessels so that they don't collapse inwards.

    • It keeps the xylem vessels waterproofed, this stops any water leaking out.

    • Lignin kills the xylem cells, this allows for an uninterrupted flow of water through the xylem vessels.

    I think that's right

    Explain why the movement of water in the xylem stops if the leaves of a plant are removed. [4 marks]

    I do about 2 hours every evening after i come home from school, but my first exam isn't till the 21'st May and i only have 3!
    I did this for my January modules as i had the same 3 and got all A's, so i guess its not about cramming in lots of revision last minute, but more about doing bits of revision everyday over a period of 6-7 weeks
