    A weird question but in like a 3 mark question, if the mark scheme shows that if you write specific 3 words in your answer you would get 3 marks. So if I write those 3 words only and nothing else would I still get all the marks or would I have to expand on the points?

    I know its a bit of a long question
    usually with a 3 marker the points link. It wouldn't make sense to just list the three words for the marks, but you don't have to expand on them. U have to make sure you link and include the words in your sentence or answer to get the three marks.

    Any predictions for this years b3, c3 and p3???
    I have a feeling for c3 it could be on periodic table and how its changed over time
    For p3 it could be on centripetal force, or electromagnetic induction
    For b3 I really can't say cuz it's so broad.

    b2- stem cells and the ethics, or maybe on pancreas and liver and their roles in digestion
    p2- Something about the stars, nuclear fusion or it could be on conducting a practical that you've done in class

    I dunno how we could have a 6 marker on centripetal force, such a small topic. Maybe electromagnetic induction or say, the parts of the eye etc

    Does anyone know how the breaks work between the unit 2 to unit 3 exams? Do we just get handed the next paper or is there an actual break?

    You get a two minute break to go to the toilet. You cannot leave the exam hall otherwise this is because you can choose as a school whether to do unit 3 or 2 first so people might be talking about it online. You are not allowed access to your phone and you have to stay in your seat unless you have to go to the toilet and that is only if you have nice moderators.

    Our school told us we do unit 2, hand it in and our only break is watching unit 3 being given out

    No as other people may have done the units in a different order to you so they may discuss answers online.
