    Did anyone sit the revised human biology exam? It was horrendous. I have never felt so bad after an exam. I felt like I barely revised even though I done loads of revision.
    I didn't do that but yeah that's exactly how i feel and all that studying and revising for nothing & every question that i didnt want to come up just had to appear.

    A good answer for the function of the nucleus of a neuron could be to contain the genetic material needed to encode for the proteins required for neurotransmitters!
    Although it's important to note that there's a difference between "proteins required for neurotransmitters" and "neurotransmitters" - you'd be getting into shaky territory with the latter!

    It was 1:4

    there was like 10% of one of them so that means 20% was with its pair (i think it was adenine and thymine i cant remember which one it told you) which makes 80% left over and you half that because theres cytosine and guanine and it gives you 40% giving you a 1:4 ratio

    I know, everyone is all panicky and scared. I just want to go through the paper to reassure them and tell them it'll all be fine.

    Everyone is stressing out so much, you tried your hardest in the exam and that's all anyone can ask you for!
    Last year the grade boundries were pretty reasonable:

    A1 - 78%
    A- 67%
    B - 55%
    C - 45%
    D - 39%

    So I would expect they would be pretty much the same this year xo

    The left eye is controlled by the right side of the brain. As the right side has control over the left arm the man can show the object he has read with the left eye by pointing or lifting. The right eye is controlled by the left side of the brain. As the man sees the word spoon with the right eye and the language production centre is on the left side of the brain the man is able to say the word spoon.


    ^ something like that im not sure if i have them the right way around but you know what i mean!
