    well strangely enough I spoke to someone else who was an external candidate and she told me that she was given provisional marks for both! So I've emailed the college I submitted mine to and asked for some
    I hope you manage to get some. It's kind of unpleasant to not have any idea at all, even if it is only for a little while until results day. I had to sign up with a distance learning provider in order to get my coursework moderated. I don't think the tutors are allowed to give provisional marks though, because all mine would say is "It meets the mark scheme as far as I can see". Which could mean anything from meeting the top criteria to meeting the bottom criteria lol

    I will wait.

    No...I did AS and A2 in one go, so I don't know the results for either piece of coursework. Or AS exams. I'm also an external candidate, so I don't have a teacher to give me a rough mark for it...It's driving me nuts actually.
    Im an external candidate too! Go us! I know what you mean about going nuts, Good luck

    i wrote denitrifying bacteria releases enzymes that convert nitrogen into ammonia, then to nitrate ions. Then i wrote that nitrogen becomes reduced.

    I am ial student, just did the paper ytd. Do you think whether I can write 'no' ions enter neurones due to inhibition or blocking of channel protein instead of 'less' ions?

    do you guys know the result of your coursework?
    No one will until results day, unless your teachers marked it, told you and it is not being moderated.

    None of the myofibrils actually shorten, they just slide over one another which shortens the sarcomere. H zone and I band are the specific bits of sarcomere that shorten.

    Oh okay but isn't the I band made up of actin filaments?? I was so torn between putting the actin filaments or the H zones.

    Exactly my thoughts plus the RER wasn't this zoomed in and so it was not clear. Also the way it was printed was messed up.Having said that I don't feel its people's fault who did jan 2014 ial paper coz it can just be a coincidence as our teacher clearly asked us to try the international ones coz they share almost all of our spec.

    Either we've all done real bad or they feel sorry for giving us a horrible Unit 4 paper. Maybe both

    Would say both was an awful paper. Wanted boundaries even lower though but was pleased they were lowered quite a bit. Good luck
