    probly hard to make a bio unofficial mark schem as the questions can have so many different answers and they are very hard to remember

    Oh! Thanks for the info. I'm taking 2 gap years though so I won't be needing any offers from universities in the next 3 years. By that time I would have finished my a levels and they will be using my a level grades as a reference not my predicted grades. My teachers also have already done our predicted grades for next year based on all our mocks we've done and will only change them if our as results are horrific

    it doesn't say anywhere in the new spec that we need to know about cholera specifically like the past specification. But i think it'll be good go gather a bit of knowledge on it just in case.

    Debatable - The paper might be easy (in terms of the questions) however the mark scheme can be extremely harsh when it comes to the usage of keywords. I was marked down for saying "amino acid sequence" rather than "specific amino acid sequence" in a question.

    Also, some have argued that because this is the new specification, the board might lower boundaries to make the spec more appealing, I highly doubt that however as I don't think it will sit well with Ofqual!.


    so like easy papers can also have low-grade boundaries ?! is this hat ur trying to say ?if this is the case i still have hope for scoring at least a B on my biology paper 3 .
