    I did this too, it seemed too much of a small number. I think we would get 1/2 marks.
    I'm pretty sure it was a 1 marker...

    I just realised I messed up on the percentage question; for some reason I put 67% instead of 0.67%...
    same stupid mistake...

    It is 67% mate! You divided 2x10tothepower6 / 3x10thepower8 and then times the result by 100 for a percentage which gives you two thirds
    It isn't 67% at all. It is 0.67%

    I'm 99.9% it was 2 because I remember contemplating to change my answer to 67% and I knew I would get 1 of the 2 marks. I may be wrong but I'm pretty sure this is the case

    I went got 6.6% but wrote the fraction 1/150 x 100 would i get the mark?

    Also what on earth was that paper? Half of it wasn't even factual bio- so many 1 markers and suggest took up more time which meant we had less time on others. This is unfair especially considering how easy papers were in 2010-14. This paper in general was very weird to say the least :/

    Do you think lichens and pollution would get me the mark although they were asking for an animal didn't read the question properly

    No the answer was 0.67% (I made the mistake of writing 67% too)

    2 000 000/300 000 000 x 100 = 0.67%

    Guess that's down to the mark scheme, I'd say you'd get one

    I'm pretty sure it asked for a living organism, and a Lichen is a living organism, so it should be correct
