    what is clonal selection
    clonal selection is the monoclonal antobodies that bind to the same antigens. antibodies that are produced from a single group of genetically identical b-cells.

    guys not gonna lie but these specimin papers are slightly easier than the old spec papers i mean there are less graphs which is good but go over old papers as nearlly half the questions from spec papers are based of old papers,

    for example
    visking tube question
    enzymes in capsule question
    mitosis and meiosis comparison etc

    Guys I am finishing unit 2 and 4 tonight, and don't have time to go over unit 3B - past haemoglobin (the heart and transport systems in plants xylem and phloem) do you think i will be at a disadvantage? As i've already completed unit 1, 2ISH and hopefully 4 throughly by tonight.

    and how much max marks do you think I may lose if I avoid the heart, xylem and phloem?

    Magnification=size of image/actual size of cell
    I remember it as an AIM triangle

    . I
    A M

    I = image
    A= actual size
    M = magnification.

    Using this as a platform for people to input topics remembered from the exam on the 26th. this should single out some topics worth thoroughly revising for the 7th.

    not entirely sure on the extent of the marks you would loose but from past experiences with biology papers, the heart questions rack up big marks as it is a complex subject so i would advise going over it.
