    Out of interest, are you lot going to be revising in the morning for biology or not, because I've heard mixed opinions on which is better to do...?

    I would Tommy/Andy but I've got to get to bed early but before that revise for History. I'm dreading it, my school tricked me and didn't tell me about this second paper - might sue them for sexual discrimination. Anyways, I wish you all luck and may see you lot on Skype at about 11 - 12 ish

    Anticipating an A* in the first one but Paper Two I need an A in... It is so hard to get 36/53 in this paper, trust me! It's like doing B1, B2, B3, B4, B5, B6 all in one exam - hard!

    I feel the same about geography, we need to know about 50 case studies off by heart and memorise facts for all of those... No thanks, I think I'll stick to the sciences!

    oh urr! section c is quite varied, lots of different stuff in it! haha you need to relax last minute cramming is bad for memoryyy

    but 59 should be an A* based on boundaries I predict 51 +- about 3 raw marks for an A* hahaha

    The specimens were absolutely ridiculous! It was so difficult! What was it? About 50 or 55 for an A*? I really hope the real thing is easier but the grade boundaries are higher!

    the real mark schemes are always more lenient because they take people's responses into consideration :P

    When yeast undergoes aerobic respiration does it create the usual products of co2 and water? Or does it produce ethanoic acid instead (like it says in the chemistry revision guide)? )

    And are bacteria/fungi detritivores since they're not animals?

    But they're still detritivores, right?

    Actually, never mind, I just found out that detritivores are organisms that feed on dead and decaying material but then it says bacteria/sacrophytes are decomposers...aren't bacteria/sacrophytes organisms as well though lol?
