    I hope not! im hoping that because its the last year and they know we cant resit they will be nice! but I doubt that because I feel like the exams are getting harder and harder!

    Thanks, I'm also scared that grade boundaries will be very high cos only A2 students are taking the exam. 😭

    Thanks so much man!
    Yeah i thought some of these might come up, thanks again!
    You're welcome but I can't guarantee anything lol

    For F212 resitters I'd pay attention on smoking as we didn't get any last year and also evolution/natural selection (e.g. how a population of resistant bacteria develops) and plenty on enzymes. Also properties of water and possibly use of microorganisms in food i.e. pros and cons But F212 is so difficult to predict, it seems like everything comes up in that exam.

    My teacher's predictions and she's generally very accurate:
    mitosis, yeast budding, stem cells
    blood vessels
    hydrostatic pressure graph, lymph, tissue fluid table
    microscopes
    apoplast/sympast pathways
    xerophytes
    prokaryotic/eukaryotic cells
    cytoskeleton
    wow! thanks for these! has your teacher made any predictions for the a2 papers?

    nah she wants us to revise everything and then like a week or so before the exam she'll do it
    all i can tell you for F214 so far is that we're not getting kidneys because last year there was a huge question on that and the examiner report seems to say it was answered well overall
    and i haven't seen much of respiration in 2015 paper but can't really think of that before F211 and F212 are out of the way ://

    Seriously I am expecting a nasty calculation like in January 2013 with calculating scar surface of yeast cells or something
    There's always a calculation somewhere in there but I think we can expect much more this year because the new specification is all about mathematical concepts in Biology and they might want to test us on that to see how we get on I don't even do maths btw

    I made predictions for all my exams last year and surprisingly got them all right. I will be posting new my predictions for this year exam for ocr biology soon. Also if anyone can post the F211 2015 paper online would be much appreciated.
    (Original post by nkh123)
    you have the 2015 f211 & f212 papers?
    (Original post by bakedbeans247)
    Aww man no one is replying! :*( I need them too.

    Have you got the 2015 paper? If i could get my hands on that i could make some predictions, I was pretty good/accurate at it last year.

    Half of the paper was okay the other half was just complete crap, i also ran out of time as i struggled to understand some of the questions. Usually when doing them i only take about 40 minutes :/
