    lol, two phases of drug therapy over at least 6 months. Antibiotics and anti-tuberculosis drugs.

    I must say I found these two papers quite tricky. Everything that came up (apart from damn primers) I had revised, but a lot of the questions were not all that specific. From my past experience of biology exams, even though you think you got everything right (and most probably did get the general ideas) the marks are difficult to get. I was so sure I got an A for AS and got a low B. I think biology papers are v difficult to judge.
    Nah, I feel exactly the same thing as you. It is hard to know whether or not did I hit the point. From my own experience of doing the paspaper, if the mark is 5 , and I wrote 8 possible points, I can only hits 4 marks according to the marking scheme.
    But I did my best.

    The Food science question was familiar, so I got the idea.

    Guys, don't worry, it asked for the two products that are used in the light independent stage, you didn't have to write oxygen
