    I put micrometers as it was being viewed under an optical microscope?

    That's what I put

    Hmmm I wrote stomata per mm^3

    Hopefully the markscheme will be fairly lenient

    You mean mm^2 right? Not volume?

    I put mm^2 just because it was an optical microscope and seemed like there would be too many stomata in 1 cm^2

    :lol: oops I meant to write down mm^2

    Same that's what I thought as well. Glad someone else wrote down stomata per mm^2

    that was my reaction too but doesnt the microscope produce a 2d image in this case so wouldnt it be cm2?

    anyone done a mark scheme?
    personally i think its hard to make an unfficial mark scheme for biology because where as other subjects like maths and chemistry there are set answers there can be so many answers in biology especially with them "suggest" questions where as we would just say our answer or may be the most common answer the official mark cheme markers will probly accept a range of answers as long as they are valid

    What did you guys write about the question why the scientists drew the conclusion, it was about HIV and natural selection.
    I put that if it was because of natural selection this gene would be more likely to exist in places like Africa where HIV is more widespread instead of Europe

    I put micrometre :|
    Each stoma is about 10 um in length. Not sure if we're supposed to know this as it is quite abstract.

    Pretty sure it's cm squared because it has a higher precision than mm squared and m squared is impractical

    How are centimetres more precise than millimeters when millimeters is 10^-3 and centimetres 10^-2?

    A larger measurement gives a more accurate value so it has higher peecision

    But taking a larger measurement (which lowers the percentage uncertainty of a measurement) is different to using a larger unit.

    Say I had a book that I measured as 10mm using a mm ruler

    Converting it to 1cm isn't going to make that measurement anymore accurate.

    i.e 1cm is larger than 1mm therefore mm is more accurate.

    A cm is 0.01m
    A mm is 0.001m
