Good site for all OCR past papers....
And...Why is ATP the universal energy currency? Is it because all cells use it and that all repiratory substances need to be converted into it before then can be resipired?

I would think it's a universal energy currency because it's produced by plants in photosynthesis (and respiration) and in humans ATP is produced in respiration

All cells 'trade' in ATP instead of using a series of other intermediates. ATP is an immediate source of energy, and is produced as an intermediate between energy-yielding and energy-requiring reactions.

to add to that, its small soluble easily transported and quickly broken down to release energy
how do i know that? ...thank god for mark schemes
