    They did this with AS this year aswell. F211 was weird contained stupid stuff like holes in babies heart and half was plants, F212 was more spec based, overall very good paper. F214 was not too nice, so hopefully F215 will follow the F212 trend

    can chloroplasts actually be positioned nearer to the surface in order to capture the light available for shaded leaves or do chloroplasts not move.??
    They don't move exactly but the cells will have a larger vacuole which pushes the chloroplasts right to the edge of the cell as the vacuole is taking up most of the space

    Tbh I should've expected massive gaps of content in this exam with OCR, last year i remember there being absolutely nothing about the heart in the whole exam, so maybe this year they just decided not to include the liver either!

    i put that the leaf adaptation was less tomato on their underside since leaves in the sunlight would have more stomata - going by what it says on the internet, this looks to be correct

    You could look it up, my guess is that the cytoskeleton can move it but I don't think this makes a difference tot the amount of light received (or very little) again not 100% sure, maybe look it up or ask a biologist in a thread.

    For the question on mitochondria were you meant to use the letters or give the actual names?

    Okay so that mark scheme has made me feel a little better as well as worse, how can I be stupid enough to mess up the damn mitochondria quesiton! Ran out of time to go and correct it, 3 easy marks wiped out which could mean a whole grade

    This all seems incredibly correct my mind blanked on the blood Q though -.- anywho i think with the sweating one I could be wrong but I'm pretty sure they'll want the use of the word negative feedback in the answer
    Also for the alcohol i said it stops fats from turning into glucose via gluconeogensis, and this process produces more heat than drinking alcohol and would cause the hypothermia to become worse.. do you think thats a valid answer...Anyway thank you for this its amazing
    I'm not too sure since they mentioned vasodilation in the question, I think they wanted you to talk about that, but its up to the examiners to decide!
