    Was a pretty good/ok paper imo, dropped maybe 10 marks I reckon, really odd last question though, didn't realise they expected us to know about that kind of thing.

    I put the cell would burst due to there being no cell wall?

    I explained water will enter down water pot grad, from high to low via osmosis..

    then I talked about the adhesion/cohesion of water molecules as they are pulled up Xylem under pressure gradient, high to low under tension - jus the transpiration process

    I'm glad everyone else found that relatively hard too. I hope the other 3 papers aren't like that one

    It was actually quite good except for the Stem cell and last heart question. I think i should have gotten at least a c/b IJN

    Personally I'd say it was easier, just they threw in more curveballs this year which made it hard to know what to put eg the last question 😑
