    What did everyone get for the milk/bile question? I made so many stupid errors like for the what is the function of mitochondria I said it made energy for the cell and later on after the exam I realised it was oxygen....oh well. Does anyone have any good revision techniques for the chemistry exam because it's one of my worst subjects and i'm scared of failing.. Also does anyone watch myGCSEscience on YouTube? He makes pretty useful videos, not much for additional but he has huge playlists for b1, p1 and c1.
    For the milk bile question I put 'Because Lipase was present in both so fats would have been digested by the lipase into Fatty Acids - lowering the pH'

    Mitochondria do provide energy - released from glucose through Aerobic Respiration

    As for chem find a mate who you can test and be tested by - it helps me no end

    Anyone think they know what the grade boundaries might be? Apparently 40/60 is an A*?

    Very likely
    I'd say this exam was harder than the previous years

    b2 was sooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo oooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo ooooooooooooooooooooo freaking easy, in my opinion the first questions were the hardest. I am kinda shocked because most people on twitter are crying about the b2 exam being too "mathsy" and more geography, now think about, if the exam was more biology based people would be more pis*ed..

    The milk/bile question it dropped to an alkaline not acid because it when to ph nuetural because bile nutralises stomach acid and emilsifies fat..

    Did you do further additional science or gcse biology because the lungs question was on the BL3HP, whereas the FAS1HP people had an egg question instead...

    The 6 mark questions were also slightly different - human and cow valves for BL3 and human vs artificial valves for FAS1

    Do you remember the pH range on the side of the graph?? Didn't look and regretting it now 😂😂 I put both dropped because the fatty acids are still being produced in both beakers (or whatever the test was in!) because both contained the lactase enzymes doing the digestion - still think this is right because of they were asking about neutralising it they wouldn't be asking about both! And anyway you can't drop the pH to alkaline - if you drop the pH the substance is becoming less alkaline and more towards the acidic side

    Not much really - in terms of the exams they just change one or two questsions so that they can call it a different paper- the rest of both papers were the same - probably to get more money or something

    Anyway our school had to do it because we all sat our unit 1s last year and the government made a new rule that once you start on a 'pathway' you have to stay on it otherwise the school can't count our results towards their league tables , and science a, additional science and then further additional science was our 'pathway'
