    Great, most of my revision has been based on them 6 topics so thats great what would you say instead of genetic variation in plants for the earlier questions?
    Im not sure i think it could be correct but im think im not really sure but i think Genes will come up but not genetic variation in plants lets just hope its easy !
    When you guys sleeping and waking up?

    Q1) Genetic Variation in plants
    Q2) Biomass
    Q3) Parasitism/Mutualism linking in with Evolution
    Q4) Reflex Arc/Neurones
    Q5) Organ Transplants and Drugs
    Q6) Carbon and/or Nitrogen Cycle

    Yes, these predictions are based off what has/hasn't come up on exams in the last few exam series and that has provided the base for these predictions e.g. there has been no Nitrogen/Carbon cycle questions in recent years so I 100% believe it will come up tomorrow...

    Sleeping and waking up as normal, any changes in my routine may make me feel pressurized the exam is in the afternoon anyway so it doesn't really matter to me about the timings of waking up and getting ready

    So should I take your word for this and revise these specific topics?
    Or are you not 100% sure and these are only possibilities that may or may not come up?

    Possibilities as revising everything is better but, if you had limited time, I just 'recommend' these topics as personally i believe, due to the patterns of previous papers, the topics listed are likely to come up. Don't take my word for it though...

    If i achieved a Low B for my coursework could it be possible that I could get an A* and what would i need in each exam for it to be an overall A*
    hmm. if you get FULL UMS in your exam then possibly..

    You should definitely revise the topics he has specified but skim reading the rest would still help just incase.

    reckon carbon and nitrogen will as it didnt come up in the 2014 paper. Potential 6 markers.... HMMMM

    biomass actually NEVER comes up its ridiculous

    Yeah, I was unbelievably surprised biomass has never come up so its almost a surefire for tomorrow, and nitrogen cycle hasn't come up since early 2012 so yeah definitely a potential 6 marker....

    What marks would in each exam I need to secure an A* in each science if I were to achieve A*'s for Physics, Chem. & Bio in the controlled assessments? (triple scientist)
    get as HIGH as you can in b1 b2, p1 p2, c1 c2.

    They are pretty much straightforward -- allows a bit of mistake in the 3's. Dont be too lenient though!

    I don't know why but I feel B2 is more difficult than C3 and P3? Anyone else feel the same?

    i wouldnt even mind nitrogen cycle, i dont see how biomass could be a 6 marker though? Like, we may be asked to draw the trophic levels or something

    I've seen a question about biomass before I think it was the 2011 paper? I don't think we will be expected to draw a pyramid, if it comes up there will probably be some data and they might ask how energy was lost

    B2 is okay but a massive stretch from B1. Whereas C1 to C2 is a more comforting step as with p1 to p2.

    What are you planning on taking of alevel?

    No, I just expect it to come up, my bet on the two 6 markers is the Nitrogen Cycle and Organ Transplants (causes and ethics behind it)

    Definitely Chemistry and perhaps Biology if I get a strong A...
