    That wasnt a very good exam

    Essay was OK (I did the internal/external one)

    Was just full of data

    ANTIBODIES

    The paper code was BIOL5R (reserve)

    Hope you all did well

    I predict a D for that

    I'm not joking. I legit got a protein essay. And the other essay was on variation the exam overall wasn't bad at all. I live in Dubai so probably it was too late to ship all the reserve exam papers from the UK to here

    Ugh I regret not doing Essay 1, my Essay 2 was atrocious. However the rest of the paper seemed to go well and in past papers I've only need 4-5 marks in the essay to get an A*, so fingers crossed that that happens to be the case with this paper..
