    which practicals do we need to know?
    All 6 I assume. I don't understand how the practical element works though because in physics all of the practical questions are in paper 2? But I don't know for biology. From the AQA website I gathered that in paper one there are 65marks on short answer questions and then 10marks for a "comprehension question" so I literally don't know😓

    The 6 required ones... Enzymes, serial dilution, aseptic technique, dissection, mitotic index and membrane permeability
    I am so confused about what a calibration curve is - my lab book is rubbish so I am pretty lost

    How did everyone find it ?
    I thought it went quite well. There was lots of content about enzymes though.

    There was so much application !!! I really liked the 10 marker though - the fish questions confused me a lot though. I felt as though I was writing about water potential for the whole thing! 😔
    I think you're talking about the resit paper. This thread is about the new spec

    Divided it by 60 as it was in hours, and the answer needed to be in minutes

    Did you do the graph in standard form? Did you do it for rate of reaction per minute or per hour? Would it really matter anyway? Thank you to the person who just gave me a near cardiac arrest talking about 10 markers

    It was alright, I just hated that bloody graph and standard form crap, can anyone get the paper we did off their teacher and PM or something just so I can use it to revise for paper 2, or if anyone remembers all the topics that came up because I feel like i'm forgetting a few, I just know there is going to be so many practical questions in paper 2. What questions did you guys find the hardest ?
