    I did the same, sure if the enzyme becomes denatured then the acetyl choline can't be broken down and no more AP is transmitted? ah well I'll probs retake and hope they give a proper exam this time
    I'll probably have to retake too, and yeah, hopefully nothing more will be asked about seals :').

    I suppose both papers this year are meant to be synoptic so thats how they justify it, but it did seem to miss out huge chunks of the course. Althought that might be cause there was really to much content for it to be covered in an hour exam.

    Okay, just come out from Biology and can confirm a couple of answers, while giving views on others;

    - The tissue lining the PCT was epithelial.
    - The vessels for dialysis were Renal Artery to Renal Vein...so some of you can take your arteriole-ventricular artificials and shunt it! :P Still, no sign of it in the Heinemann textbook...
    - The reason for the counter-current was to keep a constant diffusion gradient.
    - The teacher got the percentage as 17.9%

    Eh, the last one was the two-mark question, and I at least got that right...

    The other four girls in the class (that's how many turned up, excluding me) were too busy ranting on about how the seal was stupid to produce a discussion. However, I did hear him say that he'd have answered by referring to myogloblin/heamogloblin buffering, so I'm pretty sure thermoregulation didn't come into it.


    And the AQA Facebook thing is already on the news. :O

    Yeah, well he does have something like twenty years experience, so I think he'd know a thermoregulation question if he saw one. Besides, he knew what buffering was without needing to look on page 95, question 5.

    This is the truth:

    this exam required minimal revision. OCR penalised the people who actually revised. **** OCR.

    I want to see the AQA paper now. Big question... which one was the worst? I'm guessing AQA, based on the replies to that exam's thread, BBC article, etc. Still...
