    The exam officially starts at 1.30 but schools can chose to make it half an hour earlier or later. Therefore anything from 1pm to 2pm.

    I find it hard to believe some people are doing the paper at 9:30, this means that you can just share answers at 11:00 and you'd have 2 and a half hours to do this.

    Having the paper at 1:45 wouldnt make any difference though as its not like we have any way of telling you what comes up in the first and last 15 mins

    I found the exam to be mainly knowledge based and fairly easy, at least compared to paper 1. That is of course relative to what my strengths are and what I revised most.

    First question was membrane-bound dipeptidases right? Was the third questions on amino acids have something to do with inhibiting the proteins?

    For the question which said how many times more effective was disinfectant D to B, did people get an answer which was around 1.84?

    So no questions on lung disease, heart disease, protein synthesis on either paper - in other words the things I know the best!

    Anyone have any guesses what the grade boundaries will be?

    Also, did anyone else put protease for the question on what other enzyme is needed?

    Also for the question saying why water loss would not necessary equal water uptake, i said used in respiration but also the apparatus may not be sealed (guessing they used a potometer)

    Lower water potential because seawater has a higher solute concentration

    I said lower? More salt/solute so more negative w.p.? I don't know lol

    I think you have to say seawater has a lower water potential because it's got more salt and ions and stuff in it so water in the worms cells will move by osmosis out into the seawater and the worms cells will shrink and become damaged

    I thought this Paper 2 was a lot better than Paper 1 - probably because there was more time for revision.

    Surprisingly, there was a lot more on practical work and not much on the ventilation and heart.

    What did you guys write for question 2 about the exo and edo enzymes and why both of them working together is better.
    Think I got that one wrong
