    The way I think of it there are a few important things to think about - ambition, isolation, turning point(Act 1 Scene 7) and maybe even betrayal. And then as long as you know your quotes and the text by looking at the question decide what it is asking you and how to relate to Macbeth. I always find drawing a wee flow chart at the top of my page helps just to briefly out line my plan. So if it was turning point, i'd have: 1. predictions/vacillating over whether to act on King prediction --- 2. T.P LM convinces Macbeth to commit regicide ----- impact - murder of Banquo + Macduff, isolation and insanity of Macbeth and eventual demise.

    So throughout the essay you basically show how the turning point in ACT 1 scene 7 has an impact on the rest of the play

    Sorry i don't have a copy of the paper - my school doesn't seem to allow taking any papers out of the exam hall. And think it's went alright, being the perfectionist that i am I'm really hoping for a good A, but i know that I've lost 5 marks for definite and maybe 12 in total, 15-18 at the most i think. How did you find it? The first question on section 2 really caught me out :/
    Was it 4 then 2? The second part had a printing error regarding the mark allocation.

    It was mitosis so both had 4 as daughter cells have same amount of chromosomes as original cell

    Macbeth and Norman MacCaig, I have no idea what to write for Macbeth though
    The way I think of it there are several key things - ambition, turning point, isolation, betrayal. So basically as long as you know they fit into the play and relate to Macbeth and the events in the play you'll be fine. Just know your quotes and text. Try writing a few practise essays or planning them out and see what quotes are important and used often.

    So for example if the question was about the turning point and it's impact on the play, I would draw out a brief plan at the top of my page.:

    predictions/vacillating over becoming king --- T.P - LM convinces Macbeth to murder Duncan and crown them both----- impact - Macbeth's psychological decline, continuation of murdering - Banquo + Macduff's, isolation of Macbeth/eventual demise

    Have a look at some Int 2 questions to get an idea of what to do. hope this helps and your plan can be even more brief I was just showing you so it makes sense. Good Luck!

    You wrote your answers on Section 2 so the paper is the answer booklet.

    wasn't sure for this question as it said the cell was in the early stages of mitosis and the first stage of mitosis is the chromosome replicating in the nucleas? so it was un clear wether they had already replicate themselves or not?? because if they had it would have been 2 but if not then four? :confused:

    What was Q20? I think I put something different but I can't remember the question
    Think question 20 was B not A as when the algae dies, aerobic bacteria decompose it using up oxygen? not 100% sure though :rolleyes:

    In section 2 there was the question about the path water takes through a plant, I wrote about osmosis occurring, travelling up the xylem vessel but then was unsure whether the water evaporates by transpiration through the stomata or the gaps between the mesophyll cells?? someone help

    I wrote about root hair cells, xylem tissue and evaporation through the stomata but it was only a two mark question (I think) so we should still get the marks if we've written enough!

    Thankyou! I really hope a turning point essay comes up, as that's the only one I properly know how to do and have practiced...good luck for tomorrow!

    Your welcome and thanks hope the question favours us haha. I hope either turning point, theme/human issue(ambition) or isolation/breakdown of relationships. Theme and turning point came up last year though so hmm i'm not sure

    I wrote about root hair cells, xylem tissue and transpiration. is it correct that transpiration is the diffusion of water out of the stomata or would I have to mention evaporation since it's water vapour?

    Is it not the same thing? I mentioned transpiration as well, but I don't think the word evaporation would be needed.

    yeah pretty sure it's the same but biology is weird in that certain words negate the mark etc. I feel pretty good about that question and other 2/3 markers except the mRNA one and the photosynthesis one since I stupidly put co2 instead of ATP

    yeah I would like one as well. Someone uploaded a copy of the physics paper on TSR today. Does anyone have biology?
