    I think its the one to do with defining independent reseach?
    but nothing directly linked to the rats themselves, right?

    yeah probably, I don't think it was necessary - was just trying to make up for the marks I lost in the 6 marker etc.
    lost marks on the 6 marker!? thats was the easiest question?

    I think that the percentage question, last question about another indicator (didn't revise over it) and the horse question was the most dificult. what dd you find most dificult?

    Guys, was the very first question the last (4th) box? I know that they're legal and recreational but now I'm getting paranoid that I may have accidentally ticked the wrong one?

    I didn't look over that unit at all, because it just seemed so unlikely to come up! I liked the percentages and the horse question, but I think I scored 0 on the last page of the exam

    I think chemistry is going to be about describing an atom for 6 marks

    Thanks haha Looking at the markscheme it hasn't gone horrifically but...
    Spoiler:

    the main thing that it worrying me is that I used extra paper for the GM mosquitos question but didn't really write the write thing in the 'question number' box so it's worrying me a bit that the examiner might not consider it? I wrote a little message at the bottom of the question so hopefully they know I continued onto extra paper

    That is my dream 6 marker, but judging by all the exams I have had so far, they're not exactly being very kind this year

    I thought it would be something along those lines but this is what the unofficial mark scheme says:
    19. There is a large amount of snails (200) as opposed to thrush (2) meaning they have less competition and ate more snails this more biomass (2)
    I didn't even mention the thrush..
