    2012 Revised Paper Q8
    http://www.sqa.org.uk/pastpapers/pap...)_All_2012.pdf

    Similar to question in our paper.... Almost identical I'd say...
    Here's the answer from the marking scheme
    "Resistance gene has been interrupted/split/broken
    up/disrupted" Unacceptable Answer: part removed/changed
    I wrote "halved" lmfao I don't think that will suffice :lol:

    The revised paper is soo crazy!
    look at the essay questions...
    I still don't really get what the 'revised' exams are. Are these the new CfE papers?

    "Give an account of parasitism and mutualism as types of symbiosis" What? xD

    Have you seen the grade boundaries for the revised Biology? It makes me wish that I sat it instead of the old Higher...

    Who else did the essay on water balance? 2A I think it was.
    Mine ended up being really quite short and my friends who did it said the same thing.

    Also, I stupidly chose the photosynthesis essay and I definitly didn't manage to spew up 6 marks on the light dependent stage . . .

    Were we meant to split up our essays? Our teacher never told us about this.
    Will I have marks taken off if I didn't?

    Normally you do but I didn't know how to in this one. We will probably only lose the coherence mark.

    Well usually they say like give an account of the light dependent stage and carbon fixation stage and you kinda know by the 'and' that it's two separate things but there wasn't really any way to split up the blood water concentration question

    Well that was a horrible paper..It started off bad for me as I forgot my seat number, did not have calculator and nearly spilt my lucozade

    But the paper was in general a strange one..the essays my teacher had predicted and I am surprised to say all the ones he predicted turned up o:

    Either he say the paper in Feburary or He's good at this :/

    Overall the multiple choice was strange..some questions pretty standard others made me thnk, I forgot the ratios for the dihybrid cross but I had 20 mins spare at end, did the full cross and found my answer. And was it me or were there really less "A" answers for the multiple choice,

    The second part was odd..the question about the cherry trees made me stop and read it again and again for about 20 mins (dont worry I am great a time management so I got it all back)

    By the end of it I was so unsure how I did...it reminded me of our prelim where I thought I did alright and actually failed by 1% xD...

    Anyhow lets wait and see how it goes..I pray I got a B because I picked Advanced Higher biology Next year (wanna study science in uni).

    We should complain about the paper so they can lower the grade boundaries.
