    Someone else has been doing the specimen papers then!
    Yep, they were so bad though, the specimen paper 1's were majority filled with topic 1.
    Yet in this one it was mainly Topic 2, I did SOOOO much work on viruses and not one question

    I'm gutted too- just simply ran out of time so couldn't answer the last question in detail and couldn't go back to questions I had missed out. Already lost a total of 10 marks AT LEAST. Introducing a new spec is hard enough but edexcel putting that much of time pressure on us is a joke...

    I am glad I am not the only one who found this exam very hard! Has anyone created an unofficial mark scheme or does anyone remember their answers? Seems like hardly anyone sat biologyB, most people seemed to do AQA

    It would take a force of 72 dynes to break a surface film of water 1 cm long. Hope this helps.

    Guys, we are all confusing two papers! Both were sat today, at the same time, the question with the hole in septum was new spec biology, and the more maths related stuff was old spec biology.
