    Yes, perfect.
    In the question it specified animal, so yes. For the second part you could have put dissolved oxygen metre as a non - living indicator, given that you'd just given a living one.

    the grade boundaries will be high, the country want less people to get a*s.... so most of the country will get like b's and c's.... it is so unfair we unprepared and have crAp teachers........................ but yeah it will probably be like 50/60 for an a*, similar to last year, it might change by a mark or two, if aqa feels generous which is very unlikely ....

    what did people put for the malaria question about sentence 1 not being true in the article
    All food chains start with producers (plants) but the article said it started with mayfly larvae

    It didnt say anything about sf so i dont think it matters
    If it doesn't mention it then just use whatever significant figures it uses in the question.

    Also I doubt calcium will be a marking point for the 6 marker because it mentioned mineral ions in the question

    Smoking and Alcohol

    1 a) legal, recreational drug
    b) The nicotine in the cigarette makes it harder for the smoker to stop smoking as it is addictive.
    c) An independent company is a company that is private and does not work along side of the government.
    loads of people are saying that nicotine is addictive won't give you a mark, and we had to say withdrawal symptoms and dependency, oh well i think we should get a mark for saying nicotine is addictive, because its true?

    Hopefully B2 & B3 is much more easier. As normally they give one harder type exam, then the other tends to be slightly more straightforward. Dont forget it is still possible to get the A* even if you get a B in this exam. Its 25% so as long you did well in your CA & do well in B2&3 then you should be fine

    I dont think so, unless I miss read the question. Lichen is a plant not an animal. Over 90% over the people I talked to wrote lichen aswell, so don't worry.

    I made obvious blunders! Like on the, 'name another indicator other than the one you just answered' I wrote something like 'quadrat test for water' Pretty sure I only got 50
    "Only" 50?! I probably only managed 25 or 26! Plus I think 50 will be an A/A* because 2015's grade boundaries was 47 for an A* and 2014 was 44 for an A*. Don't worry, you did better than me lol

    the independent one i think you can have a company which is not affiliated with the original drug company so bias is avoided
