    Oh yeah so everyone thinks nitrogen cycle will come up but what will the other 6 marker be? It could be about natural selection??
    Thermoregulation maybe. Could be something to do with evolution/speciation too

    Look at the six marketing wrote before. The six marker isn't about the whole nitrogen cycle but the bacteria in the nitrogen cycle instead

    Second six marker in a nutshell:

    1. Variation in species.
    2. Overpopulation. Overproduction of offspring.
    3. Struggle for existence. Environment not enough resources.
    4.Survival (people with advantageous characteristics more likely to survive) competition with limited resources.
    5. Will pass advantageous characteristics to offspring
    6. Gradual change. Eventually ones without advantageous characteristics die out.

    such as the one marker asking what a plant needs to grow, it was different from anything I've seen.

    & I know this was the question I didn't get full marks in, but I basically said if you contract sickle cell disease you are resistant to malaria & wrote some stuff about passing on the allele. I highly doubt I got more than 2 marks in this question it was highly confusing

    Didn't it say that people with sickle cell disease were less likely to get malaria not that they were immune?
