AQA Biology AS New Spec - 26th May and 7th June Watch

Announcements
1. Is there anywhere we can get an unofficial mark scheme from?
2. I thought it went it went really well the two topics that came where probably the easiest ones

Its dy/dx so u had to find the difference
3. (Original post by hxrrict)
i got 22.5 but i dont think its right im not sure i even know how to calculate it i just divided the value on the left axis by 10
Yeah I also got 22.5
4. For the magnification question, who else got something like 21,000? I followed all the steps but I think my answer looks weird, I'm not sure.
5. what did people do to get the values for the table (and then you had to do the graph) i divided the values they gave by 60

yes i got that too it was something like 214...

Pretty sure it was 9.4/9.5 if it was correct to draw a tangent

i got exactly that
9. that felt like a paper on enzymes I swear they were in every question, bit confusing. I got 22.5 for the ROR, but I messed up the magnification cos i did the wrong conversion For the graph question did other people get answers x10^-3?

yeah i did that and then pressed the S->D button on my calculator to get it into standard form
11. It said the rate at 10 minutes ONLY, therefore doing change in conc over time is incorrect.
You draw a tangent to the point and calculate as normal.

Yep x 10^-3
13. Can come one pls tell me if there was a fish question?
14. what did people write for a statistical test?

Yeah I did that too - divided the values they gave by 60 and wrote it down in standard form, as it was shown on the calculator. Then when I plotted the graph I put (x10^-3) in brackets next to the axis label so I only had to label the scale with numbers 0 to 4 if that makes sense.
16. Predictions on grade boundaries, it's out of 75,?

there wasn't one

Yes!! what was the shape of your graph?

There wasn't a question on the new biology spec paper 1 about fish. Must have been another paper

i got the same 84mm= 84000um /4 =21000
