    I hope so. It was such a bad paper - nothing on the skeletal system, blood, tissue fluid or eutrophication - more on flipping risk and LCAs which, I thought we only had to know about for C3?? Do they know that was over a month ago?

    Glad you found it better. I'm sure you'll get a good grade
    Lo l just crossed a tweet from you on the ocrbiology page. Yeah i also found the paper a little hard. There was too much analyses and the paper focused too much on geography and had Chemistry in it omg. I'd be so sad if i dont get my A* in results day

    Biology is the most dull science imo, but using other full subjects like geography and chemistry won't liven it up!! Haha
    You stalking me? Haha jk
    And yeah there really was. Why can't a science paper just test us on our knowledge of science for once? Like would it really be so hard?
    Same really as I know I'm capable. But it wouldn't surprise me.

    I don't think the grade boundary will be any higher than last year because there were quite a few awkward questions.

    I was raging, I could've written an essay on eutrophication I know it that well. And diabetes. I was so annoyed none of them came up 😒

    Since we started doing GCSE science I've pretty much struggled. I was flying before then, before OCR screwed my life over!! And I doubt you have, B7 is only 25% so if you've got 75% A* then an A in B7 isn't going to change that

    Blessing you know that the percentage increase is like 105% cos it is is like 5 to 11, so it doubles
    I thought it was how much the percentage risk increased by and wasn't it in percentages to begin with?? :confused:

    No as that was the unit for the vertical axis and then cancels - it was like 10 - 5 / 5 ( i can't remember the exact numbers) and then multiply by 100. It was percentage increase

    It was an INCREDIBLY poorly worded question, OCR at their finest here.
    It didn't want percentage increase, it wanted increase in percentage risk.
    A very easy mistake to make though.

    No, I don't know how many marks the questions were worth really. I will try though.

    pollination
    clean water

    fertile soil for growing crops
    food e.g fish and game
