i did both b2 and b3, b2 was harder than b3 as the graphs and sankey diagrams were impossible to interpet, i am getting the paper we did this morning later this afternoon ( my dad is a exam officer) and i will post the questions and answers, pm or quote me if you want the questions and the correct answers
Oscar
Could you send me the correct answers for B3 please?

Didn't think it was too bad!

I thought that the milk question about enzymes was brilliant - loads of marks to be gained and relatively easy

But those graphs were stupid.

It was fine actually, I'm sure I lost a few marks here and there though.
Oh, and guess which retard wrote "spontaneous generation" . . . OOPSY.

I did the Unit 2 retake too and that was fine, I don't think I could have lost any more that 5-7 marks : )

For the carbon cycle question i put D and B (might have messed up)
But every other question was fairly straightforward
Hopefully I could get 40+ so i can negate my ISA mark (32) and get an A*

Found that pretty difficult... hardly anything about enzymes in industry and genetic disorders which I revised loads...
Anyone else put Chlorophyll as one of the carbon compounds? It's got 'C' in the formula so I'm guessing it's an accepted answer... put Protein as the other one, which kinda makes sense, but probably too vague.

Was anyone else pissed off when they spent hours revising genetic diagrams and punnet squares, only to find it had not even been MENTIONED.

******.
That was pointless.

I found both units quite challenging (lots of random questions popping up everywhere), but I personally put down glucose and starch for the carbon compounds - since they have different structures I'm hoping both answers will be accepted. On the other hand, I really hated the question about biofuels - I haven't learnt about any enzymes being used but I guessed amylase... Could someone explain that to me please?

Are you talking about B3? I only took that paper but everyone said they got stumped on the question where you had to mention the name of the enzyme. I wrote carbohydrases.

Yeah, I'm talking about B3 - amylase is a carbohydrase but I think it asked for a specific one - I only guessed amylase as it would break down the starch in the plant material into simple sugars for respiration...
