    I'm pretty sure it asked for a living organism, and a Lichen is a living organism, so it should be correct
    I really do hope so, thanks

    It was 66.6% recurring or 67%. Either would get you the mark
    100/3*10^8 * 2*10^6 = 0.67

    i thought overall it was pretty easy but some questions were really confusing especially the "what is meant by an independent company" swear ive never been taught that, I'm so hoping the grade boundaries are low

    lichens
    Apparently lichen is wrong because it's technically plant? I'm not sure and I will be happy to be corrected if wrong but I put sludge worm for water pollution.

    I found it okay actually, I didn't put calcium into the 6 marker which I'm annoyed about now but I put in vitamins and everything else in :/. The very last question over a different way of using an indicator was hard :/ what's an indicator you can use for sulfur dioxide/air pollution? Does anyone know??
    I said Lichen for the first named example and then used tubifex worms.. another biological indicator but surely they can't ignore that as they are used to test for pollution....

    I thought it was difficult since it had no easy question topics, no infectious disease, menstral cycle, mmr...

    pretty good questions about neurones, however the mosquito questions were hard! pretty sure lichens is wrong as it said animal, though i got it wrong aswell... independent business question complete rubbish no link to biology and the diet question which is a free 6 marks make this a very hard paper to guess at grade boundaries!

    Personally, I hated it. (I cried the moment the exam finished because I was so annoyed at myself/the test) I revised quite a lot for it, but most of it just threw me off - I was extremely happy about the 6 marker, though (The past papers were so much easier )

    I thought it was easy? Especially the 6 marker (but then again I took GCSE PE and that's on Friday so diet and its components is a key topic in that subject which might be why) so I was expecting high grade boundaries but I'm guessing that won't be the case come August?

    I just realised I messed up on the percentage question; for some reason I put 67% instead of 0.67%...
    So did I!

    I'm pretty sure it was invertebrates for water pollution and then oxygen levels in the water

    I already have so many regrets... just realised I rounded 0.6 recurring to 0.66 instead of 0.67 *slow claps*
