    I KNOW! It's completely useless doing past papers as well because the specimen has changed so much since then, so we've got no past papers to practise with either BUT, I'm hoping since we are the first year doing the new specimen, MAYBE the exam board will be a little lenient with us?? Oh who am I kidding:afraid:
    Haha yeah hopefully! There's only to hoping that the paper will be relatively straight forward! Which topics are you hoping will come up in the long answer questions for Paper 2? I hope it's not ecology/biodiversity because I honestly haven't studied it properly so

    Honestly, at this rate I don't even know what I'll be able to answer and what I won't be able to!
    I've been looking through topics 1-11 every day for around 4 weeks so I think I have reasonably okay knowledge in almost every topic. I particularly like human and animal physiology cos it's more relatable to me than something about a plant :confused: I don't really like ecology or biodiversity either haha

    How did people find their English HL paper 2? Does anyone do dramas?
    Paper 2 was decent - i answered question 3. But when I finished the exam I realised I missed out on few good points :/ What about yourself?

    In that case, I'm sure you did/will do fine! and same here, I much prefer human physiology too! Is that what your school is doing for the option topic in Paper 3?

    I found Paper 1 easier than Paper 2 but both were okay overall! I did manage to get down some real life examples but I don't think there was enough tbh

    Oh! Glad to know I'm not the only one who struggled with the exams. It seemed this year biology papers were quite tougher than past ones. Really hoping Paper 3 to save me tomorrow!
