    I put photosynthesis as thats the process written in the passage.

    No, I did that too. Primary consumer is wrong, but both secondary and tertiary consumer could be accepted, although I cannot think of a tertiary consumer which a Venus flytrap would eat. Personally i think that if they accept just consumer that is too lenient, but hopefully they will for all those who put that down!
    Haha yeah.. I'm not too sure about tertiary either
    Just hope for the best..
    Anyway how was the paper for you on an overall basis?

    Well I *think* I got full marks based on my mark scheme, the only thing slightly concerning me being the consumer part of question 1. It was a pretty good paper, but still missing a lot of what the course covered.

    why ask a question about hearts or kidneys when you could ask a question about placentas?

    Exactly, and I think they actually asked it in the first paper as well. Great.

    In the first paper they didn't ask about placentas, but they asked pretty much everything else about human reproduction.
    There was so much stuff about reproduction in paper 1 and about the eye, and yet they both came up again in paper 2! Don't worry about kidneys/heart/lungs/digestive system/plant reproduction at all.
