    uhhh i put primary structure for the first questions xD is that wrong?
    it's not my mark scheme. Anyway, I put Primary structure to and of-course it should be right, because primary structure is defined 'a sequence of amino acids'. I Dont see why not.

    Do you actually have to underline Mycobacterium Tubercolosis?

    7 marker on how the phagocytes destroy pathogens are binding to them or so



    A in the 70s, maybe high 60s? depends how people have done.
    for phagocytoes did you

    talk about everything the engulfing , digestion, forming the phagosome, lysosomes releasing the hydorlytic enzymes, talk about pathogen having antigen and attaches to phagocytic cell, e.t.c

    I messed up the phagocytosis question and wrote about lymphocytes. How many marks will i get out of 7 for this?

    Pathogen engulfed by macrophage cells from the immune system
    Removal of antigens from pathogens
    Antigens presented on surface of engulfing cells
    They then find the lymphocytes that can neutralise the particular antigen
    Selection of correct T killer cells and T helper cells
    Reproduction of T killer cells
    T killer cells search for infected cells
    T killer cells attach to infected cells
    T killer cells secrete toxic substances (hydrogen peroxide) into
    infected cells to kill the cell and the pathogens it contains

    It's usually around 85/100, don't think it will be any different for this one.
    do you guys mean 150 UMS? considering 100 isnt even a B

    For the 7 marker on phagocytes i talked about the engulfing and lysins etc then i talked about macrophages presenting the antigens and then talked about immune response. I didn't think that just writing about the phagocytosis will get u 7 marks thats why i done immune response aswell..

    I wrote primary structure for the first question technically, that is what it was describing... or did I read the question wrong again!
    And more silly-ass mistakes:
    Spores instead of droplets
    Only underlined mycobaterium instead of tuberculosis (probably spelt that wrong in the exam aswell)
    Cystine instead of glycine

    Why must Biology have such funnily spelt/sounding words ?!
    I put primary structure too :/ That *is* a sequence of amino acids.
    And ahh, did we have to underline the Mycobacterium tuberculosis? Damn

    are the squirrels conserved to prevent inbreeding with other of the same type of squirrels so that the genetic diversity is not reduced?
