    You're welcome!
    I'm not too sure about F212 bc I only resat F211. But I remember my teacher mentioning smoking and diseases (and antibody response) probably will come up. Not sure about the rest, sorry!

    Hi there,

    If you dont mind me asking, when you say these are based partly on what your teachers have said and then your own personal ideas. Where do you get your own ideas, is it from looking at what has come up recently?

    Mainly based on what has come up recently and in previous years and how exams generally follow a trend in what they ask. Also, this is the last year for out exam board so they are likely to ask stuff that hasn't come up much before. Again, these predictions are based on rough ideas, but I tend to find they are generally true. I found the stuff that came up last year was quite well predicted, especially for F212

    Maybe go over the F211 module briefly. I don't think they will ask you much on it though

    She said it had a strong possibility of coming up, but don't focus on it too much
    Ah ok thanks! I've knuckled down the important bits like the l*pir^2 and how it works in my head, maybe i won't sit down a memorize the steps like i was planning then haha. Thanks.

    f215:

    cellular control:
    - mutations (advantageous/non advantageous)
    - body plans (most likely a long, application question)
    - translation/transcription
    - epistasis
    - hardy-weinberg calculation (my teacher said this had a very strong chance of coming up)

    biotechnology:
    - cloning animals (embryo splitting/nuclear transfer)
    - asepsis
    - pcr
    - gene therapy
    - use of bacteria in biotechnology


    ecosystems:
    - improving productivity
    - succession (application)
    - nitrogen cycle (detailed)
    - conservation and the galapagos

    response:

    - apical dominance
    -sympathetic/parasympathetic pathways
    - muscles (almost certain) & sliding filament model
    - dopamine and its effects
    thank you

    Not that I know of at the moment.

    Quick question about coenzymes. Do we need to know what they're made of? For example how NAD is made of 2 phosphoryl groups, 2 ribose sugars, nitrogenous base, adenine and nicotinamide ring? I haven't seen questions come up on this but I'm still unsure about leaving it because it's in the textbook.

    On the question about ornithine cycle, is the two answers meant to be water. Surely one must be CO2

    Thank you for this list, has helped me to make one of my own Though, surely anaerobic respiration is fairly unlikely to come up as there was a 5 marker in last year's paper?

    Not sure if this was directed at me, but I thought I'd share my list anyway! It's mainly just a guess from what came up last year and the year before that (and I happened to guess fairly accurately for the F212 exam on Tuesday so hopefully my luck will continue haha). I've split the list into two sections, one being topics/questions that came up last year and therefore might be unlikely come up again, and topics that didn't come up so may be in this years paper. Ideally you should revise everything, but with only about a week to the exam, you kind of have to prioritise topics (or at least I do anyway):

    F214 - Topics that came up in 2015:
    Structure and how adaptations relate to functionality of chloroplasts
    Limiting factors of photosynthesis
    Adrenaline
    Insulin secretion
    Where reactions happen within the mitochondria
    Anaerobic vs Aerobic respiration
    Dialysis
    Motor Neurone structure vs Sensory Neurone structure
    Homeostasis

    F214 - What could come up this year:
    Action potentials and depolarisation
    Synapses
    Ornithine cycle
    Osmoregulation
    General kidney function
    1st/2nd messengers
    Control of heart rate
    Structure of liver lobules
    Oxidative phosphorylation and respiration in general (as wasn't in last years exam)
    Diabetes - causes of, treatments etc
    The pancreas - glucose regulation with insulin and glucagon etc.

    Those are just what I'll personally be cramming before the exam, but OCR seem to like catching people out with unlikely questions on topics... so best to cover everything the best you can!

    I've talked about this before with other people, but I'm still not sure. I don't think they would ask us to draw the whole structure of the bat, but it may be included in some kind of application question. I would suggest breifly going over it, but I don't think we would have to completely memorise it. Maybe just mention it breifly in your notes/flashcards.
