    I put biodiversity in a habitat, and then biodiversity on a world scale. Not sure tbh
    Yeah I put a habitat and then an ecosystem, one of my friends put locally and worldwide, and another put species richness and evenness, everyone I've spoken to has put something different 😂

    That question was hard. I was writing everything about organic and inorganic cofactors and how they help to increase the rate of enzyme reaction... That question was so hard. Also the question were you had to write how you would carry out the investigation for the water lily plant was really difficult my hopes of getting an A in this paper are gone

    oh my god that question I left it to answer at the end but the invigilator said put your pens down😩 wouldn't have got it right anyways. There were loads of questions that required you to read the question really carefully and ocr is so specific is well which makes it so much worse.

    What does everyone think grade boundaries will be? I dont think they'll change much as they havent done so in the previous years
    Last two years 68 has been an A... I don't think they'll change much unless everyone has done terribly. I also think they'll be inclined to keep them high as we are competing with this years new AS syllabus which is meant to be harder..

    I had no idea for this one, I put local and international!! I looked it up on the internet and I think it was more or less asking you to put genetic diversity/ species diversity/ ecosystem diversity..

    I think it was any from ecosystem/habitat diversity, genetic diversity and species diversity as far as I know those are the 3 levels of biodiversity.

    What was it wanting when asking about the two levels you can assess/measure (I can't remember, something like that) biodiversity?
    I have no idea but I put in situ and ex situ conservation

    Did it ask for advantages or reasons? because I think I wrote reasons :confused:
    I think I went for reasons...

    I said that it more accurately represents the origins of bacteria and archaea, recognises that archaea and bacteria are distinctly different and that prokaryotes are distinctly different from eurkaryotes.. although protoctists are anomalies there
