    Hydrostatic pressure> osmotic @ arterial end so net movement out (ultrafiltration)

    Reverse in venous end via osmosis

    Not really sure of its importance though :/
    It's important as it allows molecules like glucose and hormones to enter cells, and to collect waste products, such as CO2

    "Comparable to the legacy specification." I surely can't be the only who was comfortably getting A grades, and now begging for a B/C. If they want to make it comparable, then Lord there's going to have to be some real low grade boundaries.

    I'm in the same position as you , It's so unfair I doubt I'll even pass biology this year someone should start a petition or something ! :confused: The most annoying part is that the revision guides didn't have any questions that were similar to those on the real paper?!

    Ironically, the textbook/revision guide is written by the same ***** that write up the exam paper.

    On the question where they talk about which two animals could be classified in the same group and showed you 3 pictures....

    do you think they will mark me down for spelling incisors as insicors



    And on the bat frequency graph thing, how many pulses did you put in a second?

    AND, what did you put in the heart defect question?

    Yeah I did, is there a thread for it? I thought it was okay, some questions were worded weirdly and I think I read into it wrong but who knows. How did you find it?

    Same! Those were my favourite topics. I found the last diversity question threw me a bit. They gave an index of 10.24 but I thought it couldn't exceed one 😕 but the essay question wasn't too bad though
