    Yeah the lichen crap and the monitor questions I skipped out , really didnt understand them, so I've already gotten -6 marks now ... The rest of it was ok I think. Hoping I got all of the marks for everything else , and hope that the mark gets upscaled by alot.

    would it still be right for the first question which was about that musk ox i think.... i put it has a smaller Surface area compared to its volume and it has fur to keep it warm, do you think i would get the mark? Also what did you lot get for that evolution of the Apes? i wrote that the over the years the spinal cord became straight and the skull became human sized. Did you understand that Indian question, were some british people went their and was accused of bringing some flu. What did you lot wirte for it?? i wrote that the british people had it at start but then the antibodies helped them. then the flu evolved or something like that. :P

    Damn. I've written the opposite.

    Evolution of the apes - got that wrong.

    I wrote something about antibodies for that question.

    Pretty difficult paper.

    Sat this paper today.. did anybody else find the last question hard?!
    Rabbit embryos?! what did you guys put? And also what did you put for why oestrogen was shown on that graph as well as LH? And for the guys who got the influenza i said that the british people may have already had a vaccination. I found it quite hard I put about getting taller and getting larger skulls for the ape one aswell. :P

    woo , i wasnt the only silly person then lol. Okay for the rabiit embryo i swrote :

    1) positives- more eggs are available to use in rabbits rather than humans. then i explained about cloning
    2) bad- ethical stuff- against religion - e.g unatural, animal righs- they believe testing is wrong. It is not known if it is safe


    Conclusiong - it is not a good idea, as cross-breeding may be bad


    Hope its rite

    And the oestrogen one, made no sense.

    I wrote that the invertebrates used to measure Sulphur dioxide was not reliable, as they were found in both unpolluted and polluted areas.

    I alsoo wrote, that its not accurate and they should use a scientific device . EPIC FAil
