    For the how are the horses feet well adapted or w/e, i put that they can still run fast even in swampy, muddy areas away from predators

    I also put on the snail and the thrush question that less energy is lost since snails move slowly which means less energy is lost in respiration through movement..

    Did anyone else write these?
    I wrote about snails not using much energy because they are slow, but i think the answer is that they dont have any bones so all of the animal can be eaten

    Okay so the whole thing is worked out on UMS not grades - i.e. it doesn't matter if you got an A, it matters what kind of A.

    Let's say you get 2 bang-through-the-middle As, and you get given 85 UMS for each paper. Then your ISA gets you a middle B (based on last year's grade boundaries) whichis 75. If the boundary for a C is 22 then you get 60 for this exam.

    85 + 85 + 75 + 60 = 305, which is a B grade (need 280 for a B, 320 for an A, 360 for an A*)

    A synapse is a microscopic gap that connects two neurones that passes on nervous impulses

    oops made a mistake in writing that, I got 0.0067 and didn't times by 100
    For % ones they usually give you 1 out of the 2 marks if you forget to convert from decimal to % so hopefully you'll still get 1! (That's why it's a 2 mark question)

    For the one about GM I think you would have to put about how enzymes are used to join it back together.

    one mention of enzymes - for cutting out or putting in should be enough, only 3 marks

    1 mark for ) cut out gene
    2nd mark for) using enzymes
    3rd mark for) put in chromosome of other organism

    I put that but I think it's wrong

    I'm estimating 50-52 out of 60 cause I did some of the most retarded mistakes :/
