2. Apparently there was a question near the start about rats?? I don't remember any question like that only the indep business and the diet one, can anyone tell me what the one about the rats was?

1.6
Nope it was 0.6 recuring
4. I recon the high thirtys to mid forties would be around an A on this paper the predicted boundaries (approximately) are:
C )19 B )28 A)37 A*) 45
5. A receptor is a group of cells that are sensitive to a stimulus. They change stimulus energy into electrical impulses. An example is light. Hoping this is right..
6. I left my answer in standard form😞
for the malaria one 😓

15%
0.666...%?
8. (Original post by TearraeT)
im pretty sure its 0.666... The question was something like:

3X10^8 people contracted malaria and 2x10^6 people died from it. Hence the working out would be:

(2X10^6/3X10^8)X100 which gave me 0.6 recurring. (0.666%)
That's what I got it's the same as 2/300 x100

Im a business studies student and even I didnt know what an independant company was!
It's a company that isn't influenced by anyone's opinions aka it's not bias
10. Yeah I got the same answer which is the correct answer: 0.6 % as you divide 2000000 by 300000000

What did people get for the question about all boys drinking and why was the hypothesis not valid??
Because they only asked 100 boys which is not representative of all the boys in the UK.

I don't think it's 0.6% though as you get 0.6 recurring as the answer which stands for 0.666666666 (and so on). Therefore, if you round it to 1 decimal place, it would be 0.7%
But you will probably still get most of the marks anyways.

I really hope they are this low. I got around 30 marks. Spent all day revising compleatly different topics.
14. Any one get 1.6 for the average speed of the impulse in the brain reflex question?
15. What was the total raw marks for the paper?
16. (Original post by athrowaway)
What was the total raw marks for the paper?
60
17. (Original post by charliej2802)
Anyone else get 0.67%???
my mate got dat but i got 15% lol
18. Would smog levels have been an acceptable answer for a way of detecting air pollution?
I know that lichen was the organism used to check, and I should probably have put acid rain, but would smog be acceptable?
19. (Original post by BH1234)
I found that exam fairly easy, although I'm only aiming for a B in it so...
Same... Felt like I aced it with 15 minutes left... then I've just realized that the last question asked about animals that can detect?? or something and how would you detect otherwise? Definitely got that wrong haha I put zebrafish and co2

Categoric data is like red, blue, white... You can't plot it on a scatter diagram.
aka qualitative data. However, what people should have put is that scatter graphs show a relationship between variables which is there correlation.
