Me too! A closed book exam does not appeal to me at all.
That and the amount of essays and courseworks to do :rant:

Alas, AS English Literature wasn't what I anticipated it to be

Edit: I blame Dead Poets Society, I watched it before enrolment

I'm quite tempted to watch the latest episode of Game of Thrones, but I really shouldn't
Sky Atlantic tonight, will be awesome . When I do something after 8pm I don't feel so guilty that I'm not revising aha.

Have you looked at Solomon papers?
They're really good, they seem to pick the hardest type of questions you could get. It's the best preparation for C1 and C2 where I'm getting a bit complacent. FP1 tho... Not so much

Especially when the two exams were 2 days apart. In the second exam I had to be a little creative with my choice of quotations and basically did 80% of the essay using the passage they gave for an earlier part of the question

Attention all natsci applicants !Help !Why is it that animals with large surface area to volume ratios tend to have their oxygen dissociation curves to the right ?

Solomon papers have done a good job of keeping me on a leash .I think I will make less mistakes in the C1 exam.

Larger SA: vol ratio = more rapid heat loss from animal
To compensate for the heat loss, the animal has a high metabolic rate (to maintain its temp) which demands the rapid and efficient delivery of oxygen. Their dissociation curves are shifted to the right because their haemoglobins have a lower affinity for oxygen (because they need it more for their higher metabolic rate ). Hope this helps

Sup guys

I got a questions

You know for chemistry/biology exams, do you use proper sentences or do you miss out words? Do you use bullet points?

For example, if a question was "why is CO formed instead of CO2", i would just write insufficient oxygen

Is this ok. It saves time you know

It is accepted, but for clarity I would still write in full sentences otherwise you may get a dodgy examiner who can't make sense of your half-crafted sentences.

Not really. I'm slightly worried that I'll be at a disadvantage with only 3 full A Levels though

But all the mark schemes have improper sentences :unimpressed::hmmm:

I will just get the key points across and cut out unnecessary connectives and waffle

Saves time and hand pain :yes:
