    I put root cell? Would I get the mark..or?
    I'm pretty sure it was a root hair cell...I don't think it would have been as obvious as the epidermal cell as that was in the question!

    So glad I'm not the only one who found Higher Biology horrible. No chance of an A now 😩😰 Was it just me or did anyone think this paper was completely different from other past papers? There were so many problem solving questions?!

    For recombinants I ticked the middle two as well! The meiosis one was a complete guess, kept on scoring them out!
