    yeh i was very pushed for time too!!! i thought it was ok exceot i hadn't learnt the root squash tip stuff and didn't have a clue on the merging cells and protein question!!also had no time for the last question which actually looked really straight forward.

    I spelt glycosidic like glycoscidic, memory lapse, do you think I'll be penalised for this?

    I'm not sure, I mean you can tell that you meant glycosidic can't you, so wouldn't they just give you the mark?

    the merging cells question- what was the anwser? I had 30 seconds to write something, and all I could get down was 'the membrane is fluid'

    Yes!!!
    I spent forever measuring everything so carefully

    Plus, theere was some minor detail in the cell, but it was barely visible.. I was trying to firgure whjat they could give you three marks for for that question?

    Also: drawing the golgi.... ARGH!

    for the measurement question was the small division 30micrometers and the size of the cell 320. The mitosis question was hard, what did you right for the last part. I just said add them together, but do you have to take it away from 1200?

    Yeh, this is making m feel bad about the paper now!

    rying to define resolution when I forgot my memorised definition was fun..

    For the eye piece graticule question, i divided 100 by four to get that each division was 25um

    320 also rings a bell..

    mitosis q: I said to perform the equation for each of the four staes, then to add them together o get the total time for all the stages to happen

    4 lines = 3 divisions i thought, but i might be wrong

    I counted four on mine

    But then again, I did the questions out of order, so I had spent long enough with my head so close to the paper trying to spot what extra tiny detail they wanted you to replicate in the enlarged plant cell diagram, so my eyes were probably out of focus!!

    Argh I only did this paper again to get some more marks as a back up when I fail the synoptic

    actually, 4, 5 and 6!!

    I got a total of 13 marks on my synoptic last year.. I don't know what makes Biology so hard :eek:

    Are you revising all of the AS stuff for the synoptic parts of 5 and for 6? Because I have only resat unit 1, and i don't think I have the time to do Units 2 and 3 in the same detail
