    Hi, I'm new here. I /think/ i'm allowed to discuss this because it is not an edexcel GCSE... Please let me know if it isn't allowed.

    Anyways, did anyone else do this exam? I thought it was easy enough. I didn't like the calculation question at the end though

    I did average in the exam, really could have done a lot better without the mistakes. It was a pretty odd paper, totally different from the past papers I did. I was hoping they would test on knowledge, as I knew most of the stuff, but to me a lot of the questions seemed like trick questions.
    Also the check box question made no sense.

    i thought it was okay. bit of an odd one, but it was alright i guess. i think i got the end calculations right though cs everyone seemed to have got the same but it took me a few minutes to realise what I had to do. i got 0.42 for the first calculation and then 0.021 I think for the second calculation(on the last page).

    Do you mean the question where we had to tick why it would be better for humans to eat the soya beans instead of trout?

    That was quite hard, but I think I went for something like 'trout lose energy through respiration' and something else about trout. Soya beans losing energy wouldn't make any difference because we're eating them anyway. I may have been wrong!

    I think it went alright, the first question with the pyramid seemed shockingly easy, but I liked the genetic diagram - nice and simple
    ooh that's what i ticked too :p: i think the second one i ticked was something about soya beans but not the point you mentioned.

    If yes then you either did b1a or b1b

    I found the last pages very difficult , did not know what to do . And I also made a mistake on the cystic fibrosis ratio

    I learnt the work really well before aswell, but really disappointed. Hope the grade gets upscaled by alot
    did you not get a 1/4?

    yeah I learnt a lot of the stuff for biology 1 when i took that but i think the best think to do is to go through as many past papers as possible because so much is repeated in each paper. so the key is past papers!

    I retook it aswell, the lichen and the hormone monitor questions were confusing .

    You know for the beginning , the adaptations I wrote were:

    Small surface area to volume to reduce heat loss.

    and the other was thick fur to trap air for insulation.

    Would that be right ?

    I guessed that when the seaweed photosynthesises and produces oxygen as a by product, the oxygen got trapped beneath the disc of seeweed. roflrofl, i just realised how wrong i am.
