    What was so bad about may 16 bio? I know the b1 in feb was probs easiest bio test i have sat
    It was Just way too long. There was too much information given on the paper so if you read the stuff given, then you ran out of time. This meant I had to leave out the final 4 marks on the paper. Also the six mark was quite strange- it was about a man producing hydrochloric acid in the stomach. Isn't your paper the one that got a six mark on quadrats? What grade did you get in it?

    Yes that was it, I got full marks on it lol

    That's so good!Well done. You see I'm so annoyed with it because I got 70/70in physics unit 1. Then I got 69/70 in unit 1 chemistry but then I messed up biology completely-lol.what other GCSEs do you do?

    I do all of those except Spanish. Are you just doing modules in year 11 or are
    You in year 12. If so, how do you think modules are going?

    I did, it was a complete guess because I saw protein and amino acid was the only thing that I could think of. I'm not sure if that's right but I've heard of a couple of people who wrote amino acid

    Blast furnace(balance equations) will make a re appareance, organic 6 mark, usual quantitative stuff but with concentrations and dilutions, energetics 6 mark, ion exchange for hard water, rates, haber process

    For organic chemistry, they can ask about fractional distillation of crude oil for 6 marks.

    Also, one year they asked for a 6 marker on fermentation of sugars. It's literally 2 lines on the last page of my booklet yet somehow it was worth 6 marks. Perhaps a question on acid rain and greenhouse gasses as well.

    Energetics - talking about energy when bonds break and exothermic/endothermic states.

    ah i hope this comes up, i like those topics! fermentation of sugar would probably just be the equation, the conditions required and perhaps state symbols?

    The mark scheme was just sugar is added to yeast and mixed in warm conditions without oxygen present (anaerobic conditions) which produces ethanol and carbon dioxide. 6/6

    I think you can although if you already received a final grade then they might not. You should ask the exams officer at your school
