    Half of the paper was okay the other half was just complete crap, i also ran out of time as i struggled to understand some of the questions. Usually when doing them i only take about 40 minutes :/

    I agree... completely ran out of time.. couldent even check my answers, so annoyed because usually you end with like 15 minutes spare.

    plus there were a few dodgy q's

    The one about stem cells, i had no idea about, not sure it's in either of my text books either, and that last question was just, who ever came up with that should be shot

    agreed.

    -I got confused with that one marker
    - the last 4 marker
    - and that stupid 2 marker comparing water potensials.. I couldent understand why in the lower one (-500) FEWER contractile vacuoles would be transported out when the h20 potensial is more negative and steep . what the actual ****

    also the two types of cells found in mosses - I said palisade+ waxy cuticle.. sure waxy cuticle is wrong tbh

    I assume for the method it uses to remove water you put osmosis? I put exocytosis as the vacuole would fuse with the cell surface membrane. And that's how i came to the conclusion that the water moved in at -100kpa because inside the cell was more negative (I'm not sure if the vacuole is a membrane and if this is the case the water water potential of the vacuole what be different to other parts of the cell. Anyway, then when it got too -500 the water potential outside the cell was lower then inside so the water moved out by osmosis, instead of the vacuole thing removing it. That was my thinking, i could be completely wrong. I only thought of that because like you the question made no sense to me so i came up with some magical answer haha

    EDIT: I'm aware that exocytosis isn't right, but i thought osmosis wouldn't of been either, hmm

    I got 117, I rounded 116.6 up the the nearest whole like it said

    117 I think.. 14 mm measured.. which is 14,000 um and divided it by 120 the magnification.. but my ruler is so odd

    urhg that q was so bloody hars if I had more time I could have actually got it... but I didn't . felt so rushed it was a joke..
    really hope there gonna be low boundries or else im never getting an A

    Half of the paper i felt i was just trying to be creative with my answers. They are fully aware that most of the people doing this, if not all are people resitting and so probably intentionally made it difficult. I'm really hoping for a B in that, no way i would of got an A :/

    The best bit was probably the mitosis part! I think that should be at least 10 marks confirmed!
