    LEAK FROM AQA
    Business Studies GCSE to feature questions on Cloning, Vaccination and the Carbon Cycle instead of usual questions regarding independent companies. Industry experts are unsure as to why this bizarre change in policy has occurred, with some parties citing a gust of wind at AQA HQ accidentally swapping the subject headers.

    I didn't think it was too hard however they did miss alot out of the specification which was rather frustrating

    I thought the exam was easy, next to no science knowledge needed. I'm very annoyed that a lot of the syllabus was not on the exam. Cloning, Fertilisation, Menstrual cycle. I could go on.
    There was just something about this years exam; It felt really dumbed down yet oddly worded.

    The question about less than 90% of the energy being passed on to the thrush from the snail:

    The answer why it was only 66% of the energy lost is because snails do not use energy for warmth as they are cold-blooded so less energy is lost. Additionally, most of the snail is edible so there are no bones or inedible parts (apart from the shell). This means that, while a mammals bones contain energy which can't be passed on through the food chain as they are not consumed, almost all parts of a snail are eaten so almost a lot more energy is passed on. Hence only 66% of the energy is lost instead of the normal 90%

    Also, what did you get for the independent company? I just wrote it was a company not linked to others to avoid bias and cheating.
