    i always thought essays had to be linked and flow, so digestion and obsorption of glucose is therefore linked to controlling glucose levels. Im not sure about ruminants though it is quite a big part
    I can't believe it didn't even occur to me to mention it :bawling:
    Stupid brain!

    Damn i forgot the words "hypo and hyper glycaemia" - and i wasn't sure if it was just humans or just mammals or what so i did humans and ruminants

    I know a couple of people from my school did the plant one - because we haven't revised digestion for ages - but mostly it was carbs

    Wow! Me likey this exam!

    Although we had thunder and lightning all the way through. And the girl in front of me jumped everytime we had a big clap! :congrats: Was trying not to laugh!

    Loved the carbohydrates essay too! I got from units 1, 2, 3, and 4 in there! Woo! Thought the Human Evolution essay looked a bit crap though! It just didn't flow.

    And I didn't think the shorter answer questions were too bad either. A bit crap though!

    we had thunder and lightening too, it was great. the window next to me was open and i got wet! i forgot about ruminants in the carbs essay, although i did write about teeth and adaptations as they mechanically digest food in the mouth to give the amylase a larger surface area to work ok. the first two questions were horrible.

    I drew the structure to illusatrate how it was stored in muscles and how you could easily get glucose from it again. No harm in putting that in.

    I cocked up the rest of the essay though. Ah well :hmpf:
