    i guess im expecting between 60 - 65. But maybe the boundaries are so low cause of hardcore mark schemes, so never know..i may blow 10 extra marks even though im already counting on the lower side. missed an A by one mark in AS. that shouldnt happen again ahhh

    ok here are the questions i feel i may have lost marks and my answers to them..tell me what you think
    1b) asexual reproduction, binary fission
    1c iii) more evidence obtained using larger quadrat, readings taken at different times of the day with different light intensities. thats all i got
    4b) useful to farmer so that he can know the secondary production of cattle. defined secondary production. he can know how much milk/ weight gain to expect.
    4c) biomass changes throughout the day, plant have to be uprooted and killed.
    5b i) a triplet code is a sequence of three base PAIRS on a dna or rna molecule. would saying pairs make it wrong?
    6a) bacterial genetic material is dna (bacteriophage) while virus (HIV) is rna. thats all i got
    6bi) ingest by phagocytosis..cell surface membrane fuses with bacteria coat
    7b) and 7ci ) i really do not know the answers..wrote about reverse transcriptase in both of them.
    8a i) wtf. how are you supposed to get 3 marks? defined species and said offspring should be fertile and some more crap.

    Personally didn't really like this exam..
    In all of the past papers I was getting A*'s, but this paper was NOTHING like the past papers..
    Some questions were easy, some were pretty hard.. and a lot were synoptic.. Just such a weird paper I thought!

    The exam was quite tough actually, harder than January's Paper, so grade boundaries are likely to be lower. The majority of my class felt the exam was hard. Lol I did exactly what you did for 8a i), I defined species, mentioned hybrid offspring, and that the offspring will be fertile. Have no Idea what else to put for 3 marks...
    And for the question on the two enzymes "S and T", I just talked BS about integrase and Reverse Transcriptase

    So Badly need a decent B in this exam, or else it is bye bye to University.

    Ok everyone, after looking at the posts describing questions and the pics of that paper above, I have realised that the domestic UK paper was different than the one we all took internationally. We were not informed of a different paper, and this sucks as some of our questions were COMPLETELY different, like different topics! Did anyone else take this paper (Edexcel GCE 6BIO4 June 2013) abroad? And how did you find it? I had trouble with the first question. . . The worrying thing is, I know lots of math students at my school who had trouble with their exam, then discovered theirs was different as well! Will the grading still be the same? Will our marks be compared with the UK ones? Should I be worried? I think I did ok on the rest of the paper which was mostly about immunity and speciation. I would really appreciate any replies!
    Some of my exams have been really late in order to make our exam end at the same time as the UKs, this one was at 9am so we know that we must have taken it before you? We have no quarantine this year. . . Did anyone else take Business Studies Unit 3 on Thursday? That one we took really late, like 8:30pm or something.

    SAME, I knew the spec back to front, and the paper was ridiculous! The first 13 mark question about lichens?! WTF, and the question about measuring sunlight or something - it was all worded so badly!

    You got lucky then - our school got an actual different paper which I think was harder than the one posted. Where is your school? Mine is in Beijing but we do the English Curriculum.
