    These might come up because I have never seen a question on them:

    1) state that metabolic poisons may be enzyme inhibitors and describe the action of one named poison

    2) state that some medicinal drugs work by inhibiting the activity of enzymes

    Just did the 2015 paper from last year, still as baffling as ever. Perfect.
    Where did you find the paper. Could you link me the file if possible? Thanks x

    This is so true ... Tbh you can know the whole book inside out.. Have done all of the papers .. Learnt all the mark schemes and still not get a high grade just because of the amount of application based questions and difficulty of the questions under such a strict time limit . It's impossible to predict what kind of questions they're gonna ask and impossible to make guesses as to what's worth a mark or not when you're answering questions

    That being said - not to make people scared now .. I really doubt they're gonna give us anything harder than last year seeing as it is the last year sitting this paper .

    Hi all!
    I've attached my own personal answers to the entire specification, it's VERY condensed but hopefully someone will benefit from it;
    Day before the exam, wish you all the best!

    I always manage to avoid every mark in the "describe the data" questions. I guess the best bet is to just state the obvious first and then write as much as you can... then guess the rest😂
