    The paper was pretty weird right? I sat it too and I think I did ok but I could have done better. If you want to know how well you did, there's an unofficial mark scheme for the F211 Retake already lurking on here. I'll give it to you if you want? I'm sure you've done better than you think , you gotta give it your all for F212!

    What are your coursework grades? You don't need many marks to get an E. I think it's 46/100 on F212 for an E.

    our teacher just decided to skip alot of food/health/biodiversity out! i read through the text book and it was like every other page we hadnt done haha hopeless!! i think biodiversity has some easy bits though and i think i prefer that to food and health :/
    biological molecules is the best

    although if the f211 exam yesterday is a reflection of how hard this exam is going to be... we are all doomed
    I doubt it will be that hard, I think the reason why F211 was hard because it was the last year for retakes and exam boards knew that everyone retaking was going to 'go-for-it' so they made them harder!

    You can cover food and health and biodiversity by yourself! Using these sheets - http://asbiology101.wordpress.com/downloads/
    Just scroll down to Unit 4/5!

    Don't put yourself down, the mark scheme isn't 100% accurate. The mark scheme might say you have 20 marks when you might well get higher.

    What's your idea of a 'pass'?

    I think you need to aim for 55/100 on F212 to get an A overall.
    You need 170/300 to get an E overall at AS

    B in coursework is 42 UMS and assuming you got 20 marks in F211 you would get around 22 UMS that is 64 UMS - 120 UMS = 56 UMS in unit 2 which is around 45 marks out of 100. Hope this help

    Crammer reporting in. I have ~4 days to I through all of unit 2 before I have to dedicate some time to psychology (which I've previously gone over already) and chemistry (my best subject) before I can come back to bio. Do you guys think its possible for me to come out with an A? I have a generally good understanding of the material and I've got my revision technique down (I think), just a matter of remembering it all.
