    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
    I put people are more vulnerable to get malaria if they have sickle cell disease

    I found the malaria question quite easy tho, it came up on the 2014? not sure but yea but the diabetes 2 question omg what did you thought about the last 6 mark question?
    I know the malaria one wason the 2014 paper but we were talking about the sickle cell and malaria question.
