    That question where people are arguing about whether it was hyperglycaemia or diabetes...I have one think to say: I've never seen them use words in one part of the paper when it is the answer to another question...

    Pretty sure its not diabetes mellitus.

    They didn't mention 'Mellitus' though just diabetes generically.

    Best guess at grade bounds?
    I'd say it'd be standard - probably 42 for an A, 36 for a B and so on... It was a very unusual paper though! Glass beads literally had me looking like o_0 wut?

    However, irrespective of previous trends and hypothetical thinking. The question posed was due 'to increased amount of glucose in ones urine', henceforth it would be pedantic to rule out diabetes as we can conclusively decipher that such symptom is indeed prevalent in diabetes.

    Even dating back to the pre-historical methods utilised by our predecessors, we can depict that throught their potent 'urine taste' test, they were able to conclude merely by the sweet taste of urine, that a patient was diabetic. If such symptons were acknowledged during such periods of our history, it would be a monumental mistake to rule out diabetes being one of the causes of excess glucose's presence.

    Is this the glucose in urine? Its most common cause is diabetes mellitus.

    Pretty sure the mark will be for "diabetes mellitus" and not "diabetes" as you can have diabetes insipidus as well but that's to do with osmoregulation.

    :rofl: I personally think they grab the specification, close their eyes and pick4 or 5 of the learning objectives and loosely base the whole paper around those.
    Lol, they probably have a dart board with the specification attached.

    really annoyed that there wasn't a question where I could just spurt out all of glycolysis, link reaction and krebs cycle - although a question like that had appeared before but it would've been nice..

    Was it just me or did anyone else notice a spelling mistake on the last page? Think they wrote singly instead of singularly, unless I'm being a complete div and singly is a word and in the right context..

    Personally I don't think it will be, but we'll see when the mark scheme comes.

    What context was it?

    It takes some people a while to figure it out.

    To be fair, in the June 2011 paper there was a question about glucocorticoids and you had to say "adrenal cortex" to get one mark ( adrenal gland wasn't specific enough).

    There were questions about diabetes on the page, so I think they'll be mean and specify diabetes mellitus. It is in the book, after all.

    anyone knows whether non-cyclic and cyclic photophosphorylation both involve ETC or is it just non cyclic?
    its just non cyclic

    Wonder if they'd allow 'Type II diabetes'

    :holmes:

    Probably not because it lacks 'mellitus...'

    I put that water is a medium for the reactions that happen during respiration, therefore more water increases the rate of respiration.
    I thought it was a medium diffult paper, but everyone found it really easy!

    I made so many stupid mistakes, that normally would be fine due to low grade boundaries, but it looks as if grade boundaries are really high this time!

    Which bloody sucks

    How did you find it?

    as he needed insulin shots
    not really if you check your bio book page 27 in the treatments paragraph it shows that both get shots ... I think it had more to do with the guys age or that diet didn't affect his diabetes

    it isn't because cyclic involves 2e- being passed to an electron carrier and back to PSI. That's a chain of electron transport, if there was no chain of electron transport, ATP wouldn't be produced
