    Qualitative was on the kidneys, just drawing them. The quantitative and evaluative were on the effects of temperature on free and immobilized enzymes

    How was the quant and eval??
    Were the questions really hard?
    I have mine soon so please help?

    The quantitative experiment was horrible, it did not work for the whole class and everyone made up their pH values to fit the trend. However the Paper was really easy, just drawing a graph, working out a gradient and saying what is active and inactive.

    The evaluative was not too bad, they ask simple questions. You just have to make sure you are really comparative and use keywords like diffuse and denature or you lose marks.

    Good luck with any upcoming exams.

    When you say unit 4 and 5 do you mean F214 and F215?

    By the looks of it around about the end of April. Then in may we don't have planned lessons, but you can see teachers if you need to.

    Mine finished all of F214. In F215 we completed modules 1,2 & 4. Just left with module 3 now, but for the past month we have just been doing ISA's and not much studying.

    Just follow the specification to make notes in each topic. Then revise it and practise loads of past papers. That's what I'm going to start to do.

    Dunno F211 was way more interesting to me than F212, and F214 is more interesting than F215, I could not give a damn about how animals work together in a habitat, or how dogs salivate when you ring a bell lol
