    Don't even start, 3 exams within 46 hours, that's 3 gym sessions missed. That is not okay.

    Thanks, so I might aim for the most basic essay (Assuming you have all the detail and the 3 other factors are first class) without any of the spec stuff as I have a full book of extra stuff but didn't really have time to learn it due to other exams and don't think I can learn much now
    Absolutely. An essay score of 21 is excellent and well above average. Go for perfection in the specification content and you won't go wrong. Only add extras if you can, but don't worry too much.

    My basic plan is:
    Transport in plants
    Nitrogen cycle
    Proteins - Fe2+ group in haemoglobin and ionic bonds in tertiary structures
    Synapses
    Ca2+ in muscle contraction
    Cl- in cholera
    Sodium potassium pump in gut/axon
    H+ in ETC and in regulating blood pH
    Pi in ATP and DNA

    Hope that helps!

    Thats what i plan to do! As they recommend 40 minutes, however a decent essay does not need 40 minutes of time if you have a decent plan, guess it depends on the wording of the question..

    Not too sure how much xylem, phloem and carbon cycle relate to ions but if you know how to use them to answer the question then by all means go for it, although I'd have talked more about active transport of ions in roots and how that lowers the water potential. Rather than an overview of photosynthesis and respiration I'd just mention the bits involving ions (i.e. coenzymes and ETC) to avoid wasting time and remember saprobionts make ammonium from dead organic material, only nitrogen fixing convert nitrogen from the air.

    Other than that it looks good but that's just my personal opinion, I'm not an examiner so I might not be right!

    Going to sleep now so good luck everyone!
