You'll do fine!
If it makes you feel any better, a group of my friends also taking the exam said they were going out sledging all day haha! Sounds like they're worrying about the exam as much as we are

EDIT: I try to sleep at around 9:30pm but it always ends up with me thinking about some sort of concept, like the different structures in a cell or something haha! I get to sleep at around 10:30pm usually (: I guess i'm just crazy.

it's to stop people who dont really know the answer writing lots of things that they think maybe right and hedging their bets. If you write something correct, you will get the mark, no need to go OTT
Yep I know

Yeah! Usually I hate talking about exams because if someone proves me wrong on a question, I'll be sad for the rest of the day haha. But i'm confident about this one!

General exam tips!
- be concise!
- answer in context
- read the question!
- remember two points for 2 marks, three for 3 marks!

Mitosis, occurs in body cells for repairing and growth.
1. The chromosomes copy themselves
2. The cell starts to divide
3. The cell divides forming a new (daughter cell), with exactly the same genetic informations as its parent cell.

Meiosis occurs in the gametes, containing the half the number of chromosomes. And basically, the divides again from mitosis forming 4 new cells, with the half number of chromosomes - 23. So, it divides twice...
Hope this helps x
It states in the spec that knowledge and understanding of the stages of mitosis and meiosis is not required

Never skim the question, especially when it is very descriptive. Also sleep early and keep hydrated. Eat a banana ( good source of carbohydrates and nothing to big).

Good luck!

I have a question. There's nothing to do with glucose blood rates and insulin in B2 is there? I haven't learnt anything of such but I saw a question to do with it in one of the past papers. I'm kinda freaking out now

^No, those 45 minute papers follow a different specification than the 1 hour papers.

Note to everyone

If it asks for one point:
and you give more than one, one of which is incorrect, it will negate (take away) the mark.
The same rule applies to 2 point questions

top tip.... when writing answers, try and give a definition of whatever you are describing as this seems to be worth a valid mark in the mark schemes for past paper that i have looked at.
