    Personally, I found it fairly easy, except for the 6-marker - I hadn't revised that.

    What did people put for the animal indicators? I put Lichens detecting sulphur dioxide and an alternate way was with GC:MS.
    I put lichens detect air pollution

    I did the Edexcel biology paper B1, how did people find the exam, feel sorry for the people who did AQA, I've heard some of the questions and they are no related to BIOLOGY!!!!!

    you had to analyse the graph and the graph was on the the % of 15year olds that drink different alcoholic beverages e.g beer and cider. It was totally uncalled for tbh
    Oh haha AQA trying to get with the times? I don't think AQA should be putting that in their exams, not becuase I think its reallly going to encourage people to drink, but it's further normalising something which doesn't really need any more popularity.

    The questions asked were so irrelevant. Revised so hard for that exam to then be asked questions not even to do with biology or ones not in the specification.

    64876803[/url]]So I sat biology unit one exam today and it was the one exam I did a lot of revision for and did all the recent past papers for and I felt as though the paper was nothing like the recent past papers and a lot harder :'( How did everyone else find it?
    I found the paper relatively easy, no question was truly that hard- in my opinion. But I was disappointed that so much of my revision was unnecessary, as so much of it didn't come up, like where was the menstrual cycle? Homeostasis? Evolution?

    I wrote all about chemicals then realized that was the next question argh!! And I have just remembered what I should have put in the last question as well so annoying, I think I found timing an issue for the first time


    I did that I thought the chemical bit was the answer but nope...another 2 marks for that!!

    I thought the paper was quite good. It was a shame that the menstrual cycle and homeostasis didn't come up though. The 6 mark question was a gift. I cannot understand why there would be data on fifteen year olds drinking and what are alcopops? Never mind, I hope I didn't do too badly but the grade boundaries are usually quite low so I'm hopeful that I'll get my A*

    It was absolutely terrible.

    None of the questions were relevant to Biology in the slightest? Was AQA trying to make a statement with the drunk 15 year olds question or what?

    Where were the questions everyone revised for like the menstrual cycle, carbon cycle and homeostasis?

    What the hell even was that exam. I'm so angry about this?
