    Meiosis is pure evil, I can never remember it. Plus I get confused between mitosis and meiosis all the time. Luckily I'm not doing Central Concepts though :p: It could still come up in Unifying actually, sh*t!

    Aww, I like meiosis! Well, except the last bit about the lac operon :confused:
    I hate photosynthesis and the classification chapter. Ooh and plant growth regulators.... In fact, I just hate plants altogether :p:

    GAH? where is that in the book? :confused:


    I think that meiosis will definately come up aswell as PKU and possibly haemophilia with the lack of factor 8,. Just plllllls dont make succession and crappy coppicing come up that is so boring.
    your thoughts?

    its in the syllabus, was in as syllabus and is barely mentioned in the textbook

    its briefly mentioned after sickle cell where it talks about PKU

    but basically its stuff like find genetic diseases early so advice cn b given bout diet/lifestyle bla bla bla
    but its bad becos people my ask for dna samples wen u get a job to see if theres anything dodgy about you, or u might be uninsurable like if u got huntingtons chorea, the insurance company will see that and you basically wont get life insurance

    stuf like that, if u still got ur as revision guide i think theres some stuff in there

    Thanks, kurupt1 & Sarahhuges for your advice on what might come up.

    Btw, there's a lot more on the implications of the Human Genome Project in Biology 1, pp 151, which should help.

    Anyone else got any predictions?

    Not to break your confidence, but i generally get like 30s/35s in unifying, but in the paper u did, i got 53..hehe i thought it was an easy paper...i dont think we will have the same luck

    PS - sian, OCR biology doesnt account for 'how much you revise'. But rather...the way you percieve the question some of the marks on the mark scheme may never cross your mind even if you no the topic back to front unfortunatly. REVISE THE MARK SCHEMES I SAY- easy way to do it is go through all the papers for the unit with correct answers from the MS, then arrange them into sub-categories i.e Kidney, Heart, vessels etc etc...then use thos as revision notes

    Yeah, but it's sooo annoying doing it like that! That's what I did for human health and disease and it did my head in for some reason.

    53/60 on a UC paper?! Apparently over 50 is "amazing" lol

    yeh wot i try to do is decode the question, and find out what they are 'really' trying to find out in terms of the syllabuses, and then i write down all the key points for that section that come into my head...it helps in a sense because then your woffling less, and getting down to the point. BUT this method DOESNT work with Evolution, therefore i think it should rott in hell
