    THAT WAS THE WORST PAPER EVER!

    "What is meant by an independent company?" - obvious but not a question that I'd like to see on a Biology paper. AQA are a *****y business and this question just showed it with a disgusting 1 marker like this. BUSINESS STUDIES AND BIOLOGY DO NOT OVERLAP AT GCSE; STICK TO THE ****ING SPEC YOU MONGS LIKE YOU DID BACK IN 2011 OR WHATEVER.

    TO EVERYONE WHO DID EXAMS PRE-2014, YOU HAD IT ****ING EASY!

    WHAT THE ACTUAL ****?!

    Yep. Meanwhile, the noncing Adam Johnson, however, chose to write questions on the drinking habits of 15 year olds.

    I found it okay actually, I didn't put calcium into the 6 marker which I'm annoyed about now but I put in vitamins and everything else in :/. The very last question over a different way of using an indicator was hard :/ what's an indicator you can use for sulfur dioxide/air pollution? Does anyone know??

    I spent ages revising stuff such as WBC, Fertility drugs, adult cell cloning etc and it didnt even TOUCH upon it? We may as well have not even learnt any of it. It's meant to test our knowledge? AQA need to redeem themselves. Half of the stuff on the test wasn't even required according to the syllabus!!!

    I don't think the grade boundaries will be that high - although most of the questions were used quite basic knowledge it was how it had to be applied. I think the same sort of thing happened (to a greater extent) with edexcel maths last year.

    It was 66.6% recurring or 67%. Either would get you the mark
    You're suggesting that 66.6% recurring or 67% die from malaria? Woa, I should brace myself.

    For the question about the thrush and snail, couldn't you put that due to a snails lack of movement that less energy will be used through movement and mean the thrush would recieve more biomass?

    Am I the only one that found that quite tricky? I went into the exam with a lot of knowledge but found it hard. Do you think the grade boundaries will be low for this one?
    I expect them to be quite low because on TSR and on twitter a lot of people seem to have found it hard (apart from the 6 mark which was basically the only thing related to biology).
