    lol i got 39 in jan which sucked majorly so i needed to do good.

    i wrote about mutation not crossing over during meioisis :x

    that stupid paper broke my dream of da A!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    i knew this was gonna be tough cos the one in jan05 was so easy, this rule always follows...
    the worst news is that i know for most paper the upper boundary is around 95% but it DOESNT fluctuate that much year to year, probly ±5%. everyone sound like it messed up, so i guessing on average flopped at about 20% less that you would get, so my guesses are the lowering of that papers boundary cannot compensate that much sadly.

    Ha ha ha, jan 05 was easy?! Ha ha ha, I thought that one was mega at the time, probably would be easy for me now but EVERYONE, including like AAAA students (I'm not kidding, one was top 5 in the country for Bio GCSE) thought that was hard!! This one was alright though I think And you need about 68% on BYB4 to get an A, check the examiners reports!

    Yeh, i found that exam quite hard aswell... but think i did alright though. Most people at my school found it hard aswell.
    I got 1/8 for the genetics question (i got 2/8=1/4 at first, but then realised the question was only for a male child).
    Put mutation for the new allele, crossing over just swaps them.

    yeah, I put 1/8 and mutation and I have just noticed that you may be going to leicester if you don't make notts - I'm going to leicester firm to do law

    as for the ratios i too got 1/8 BUT THERE WAS A MISTAKE ON THE PAPER. I go to a consortium and students at one school got told of this mistake whereas others did not. Apparently the gene was given wrongly it was AH not Ah (something like that)

    yeh, we were told about the mistake. Cant believe that some schools werent told, thats out of order!
