    Mitosis one crucial difference between animal is at the end of telophase(how cytokines is accomplished) plant cells divide the cytoplasm between the
    2 new nuclei by forming a cell plate rather than cleavage

    I suppose that it could have been worse. I still don't feel too confident about how I did but I don't think I could have done as worse as I did last time. I had no idea about that stuff about the cytoskeleton big question one...not the one about the two functions the other one. Or the one about histamine or the one about the cut shoot and steam. Oh well I suppose I'll just have to wait now and see. When do we get the results?

    I didn't put either of them. I put something about a cell wall and then something about the number of chromosomes (but I recon that one will be wrong anyway...I needed a second point).

    I put: "plant cell does not undergo cytokinesis


    - Plant cell plate"

    Do you think ill get 2 marks? lol
    last part was a guess

    I wrote in animal cells cytokinesis starts from the outside and with plant cells it starts with the formation of cell plates where the spindle equator was. In animals most cells a capable of mitosis and cytokinesis in plants only meristem cells divide in this way.

    Finished with about 20 minutes to spare, spent about 12 checking through... and then I saw the last page!

    Peed me off big time but I just about scribbled (quite literally) it all down.

    Struggled a bit with Neutrophil one, but bs'd some stuff with Unit 2 knowledge. They didnt ask enough about the heart though! damn them

    for the 5 mark que about transpiration did u have to mention things like cohesion, root pressure, cappillary action, adhesion and transpiration pull etc.. ?????

    I know I wanted a nice longish question on the heart and the hearthbeat but not about the electrocardiogram. The neutrophil one I didn't get either, put something about it not covering the whole cell and therefore meaning it is given strength but can move (?) Biology is not my strong point and this proved it.

    I only mentioned transpiration pull and then cohesion but I think I did it wrong because I was talking about how the water molecules are attached to each other. I think I only put them because it was asking about how transpiration affected it. However I probably have doen this wrong as most of the things I put have been proved wrong on here since. Maybe coming on here wasn't the best thing to do to build up my confidence. I feel worse now than when I first did the exam.

    for the histamine one did u have to talk about the receptor site having a complementary shape to a trigger and triggering a chemical response inside the cell ????????

    for the A or B question i put A was the brochiole and B was the alveoli (or the other way round can't remember :L) and talked about the adaptions of alveoli, what do people think the grade boundaries will be this year?

    I put the part where the airway split (part a I believe) as Bronchus, and part b was alveoli of course.
    I think I've done relatively well on this test, but it didn't have any questions on the heart or bohr shift (if you don't include the fill in the gaps question) which is what I revised...
