Yeah, I'd say an A would easily be in the 50s.

that's what I got too, no idea how people are getting crazy decimal numbers
I think people did what I did because I did 60/8 = 7.5
Then I added the time it took for the process as well as the preperation which equated to 10 seconds.

60/10 makes more sense than 60/8. =l

The distance between each grade has to be the same, with the cap being 2x the distance of each grade plus what the A is, so 74 from what you're saying.
It was 60 for an A in jan and that paper was alot easier i thought

From my memory:
I wrote down centromere for the first answer, and its function to combine two sister chromatids together (It was two marks so im puzzled)

I got a number of 6.6667 for some spiracle movement per minute question

I got a number around of 350% percentage increase

(I have a really bad memory)

Heres a question:
Would I get the mark for putting down, species of snakes and that all snakes are adults (so they are all sexually active) for question 9 when its talking about the control variables??

I think it was actually a reasonably straightforward paper in hindsight, so an A might be low 60's maybe 62/63.

I took it this way aswell and said how cell wall would be damaged preventing the replication of the cells. I think it was specifically asking how it could prevent growth and not asking about destroying,
depends how anal they are about it though
I know,I just put the antibiotics caused chemicals to destroy bacterial cell wall

The overall mark would probably be 0, unless sometimes the wrong answer may be stated to be 'neutral' in which case you would get the mark.

I think.

Jan's paper was pretty straight forward.
I got 120/140 UMS after trying it at home.
Wish I had done that paper.

neutral means half of a mark. if you get two neutrals in one paper then you get one mark added.
