    what i think might come up:
    biochemical tests for molecules
    dna
    enzymes
    smoking (health and disease and all that)
    evolution, adaptation, classification & biodiversity (as there was barely any in jan 2013)

    just my predictions

    I can't remember anything about the immune system or biodiversity or classification. Seriously, for me it's so boring; it won't stay in my head. I prefer the biochemistry stuff much, much more (probably because I do chemistry too).

    I find that stuff boring too! My teacher was really vague going through it too so I'm having to practically teach myself it all again.

    Does anyone know if there's ever been a question on the evidence for DNA semi-conservative replication? We learnt about it in class but its so confusing, and there's nothing about it on the spec so wondering if i need to go over it?

    I know - that's what I've been doing, teaching myself it all again. One of my teachers (who we have the food and health and biodiveristy stuff with) just barks the bloody information at us, gives us a handout of the presentation slides (which the text is too small to read anyway) and dismisses us.

    Evidence for DNA semi-conservative replication? Never heard anything about evidence for it, just the actual process. If it's not on the spec. I don't think the exam boards can ask you about it anyway

    That's not a fair way of teaching, revision should be going over things, not teaching yourself all over again!

    Well she explains it so fast and misses out a lot of important information that I might as well teach it all again *shrug* Had to do it for Unit 1 with the mitosis and everything

    Sounds like she doesn't go into enough detail, and doesn't have a great way of teaching. My teacher is lovely, but a bit too lovely. He sidetracks quite a bit and doesn't go into the specifics of the markscheme enough. I'm basically preparing to resit f212 next year, it was really rushed.

    Yeah, the quality of the biology teachers we have aren't great, really: everyone pretty much complains about the quality of teaching for the science department :/ My other biology teacher however, is amazing and he teaches us the biochemistry part thank god.

    And oh no Yeah, F212 is so much to remember. I wonder how people do it

    Then the students can't be blamed! Good luck anyway, I'm trying my best for now but I reckon I'll end up resitting. It's tonnes to remember like you said, but the markschemes are so specific too it's nearly impossible!

    Can anyone hazard a guess at what mark I would need in F212 considering I got 32/40 for my practical mark, and around 40 for F211 to get a C overall?

    Sure!
    I can sure give it a go..

    In respect to UMS...
    F211: Cells, Exchange and Transport - 64UMS.
    F213: Practical Skills in Biology 1 - 34 UMS.

    TOTAL: 98 UMS.

    So... For a C grade to be awarded, you'll need the bare, bare minimum of:

    F212: Molecules, Biodiversity, Food and Health: 82/150UMS.
    That is a modular grade of a D, with a modular C grade being 90UMS.

    You're sorted if you get those marks or MORE!
