    No its not. There is a lot of content that you need to know for this unit especially all the different cycles for photosynthesis and respiration

    I think so if you're a good learner and incredibly efficient. Maybe not all but 70% and do all the past papers too

    "Deformation of the plasma membrane of the tip of the neurone causes the membrane to become more permeable to Na+. Suggest why."

    For this question why does the markscheme not allow voltage gated sodium channels being open?

    Thank you

    I think it is because they are exactly that - voltage-gated. They only respond to changes in potential difference. Other Na+ channels respond to changes in external stimuli, which causes depolarisation.

    Someone correct me if I'm wrong

    What do you guys think the hardest F214 past paper is? Personally I think Jan 2010 is the worst by far, but I'm not sure if that's just because it was a new spec, or if our paper has the potential to be just as bad.

    A/B but mostly Bs. Scores have been all between 39-46.

    I need an A at least to stand a chance at an A overall. I was 11 UMS behind an A on AS and A2 coursework collectively but I think I cut the deficit down with both AS resits. I just need maintain an A in both exams or slightly over and I should be on for an A!

    So much easier said than done though... How about you?

    Well good luck for monday! I'm not as stressed for these bio exams as I need a low B to get an A overall. I'm most worried about chemistry though, I only just skimmed an A at AS last year, and need AAB for my uni offer...so need to nail these exams
