    you guys find it easy ... wtf?

    I hated this exam, it's probably one of the worst exams I have ever sat in my life... the fact that you guys found it easy makes me feel like ****ing ****... FFS. I'm pissed off badly now. I know I'm not getting A* in Biology now!
    Same, I felt like it was so hard, probably the worst I've ever sat as well and all of my friends thought it was pretty easy, but I actually had to check halfway through that I wasn't doing A level.

    Did anyone not know about section d and run out of time because of it?
    i put 10 km for fertiliser 6mark and 4.9litres for the vital capacity and cortex for the inside of the kidney and weak direct relationship. Did anyone get different?
    I think I wrote 30km since that's where the amount of bacteria was the highest...but some friends gave a lower distance though.
    I wrote 4 litres for vital capacity

    Did anyone else do the same?

    I said it was 10km because that's where it was dropped, and then the river carried it down stream. It was a sudden drop at 10km and a slow drop at the other end. Maybe I'm over-thinking it and it was just in the middle or something but I thought that made sense.

    I got 4L for vital capacity I think, it looked liked the line went over the top of the graph.

    for the 6-marker I put 10-20km, LOL I didn't have a clue :/
    I put 4L as well for vital capacity, but I just don't know anymore. Overall I thought the exam was okay.. except section D which I knew I would struggle the most with and did.

    Urgh, I found this exam SO hard. The revision guides were pretty much irrelevant (which sucked because I knew all those pages inside out.)

    It's worth 40%, right? So if my other 60% is all A*, and I get, say, a C in this (worst case scenario)...will I still be OK?

    I put B (I think it was B), because I thought that when the concentration of sugar was low, then water from the solution would diffuse into the potato (making it turgid), but when the concentration of sugar became too high, then water would leave the potato and enter the solution, making it flaccid...But I can't remember the exact graph so can't remember whether that was really what I was thinking :cool:

    I think if you got a high C you would still get a low A overall

    Was expecting this to be really hard, but it was much better than I expected. I'm not too fussed about Biology, but I hope I get an A overall.

    Minimum you'd get:

    78, really high B. And those were minimum A*s and minimum Cs. So probably an A overall still...

    I didn't find this too bad, actually. But I left out the ADH six marker What did you guys put for the raw milk? And I got 4L and 25KM. Do we think grade boundaries will be lower?
