    For those of you who did AQA BIOL2 resit yesterday - there was a huge error on the haemoglobin question! They drew the graph wrong. Nope, people on here who are saying that it was right are wrong! My head of bio dept phoned the board today and they said many schools have complained and they "apologise" for the mistake. All schools have complained about it and students are too. The more students that complain, the lower the grade boundaries will become so get rollingggggg and email them like I did!

    Are you sure the grade boundaries would be lower cos of it? Surely the logical thing to do would just be to give everyone full marks on the question? Or ignore it completely reduce the total marks, no?

    Im sure you did better

    For the oxygen dissociation curves page.
    The first question was something abt respiration...describe how the graph would look like....would the curve have been to the right so more oxygen could be unloaded?

    i thought the idea was the curve was to the right at higher altitudes because oxygen would have to dissociate more readily to respiring tissues due to there being less oxygen, and that it would need a higher concentration of O2 to become fully saturated, allowing for better oxygen carrying.

    having said that i'm really not too sure because it can be argued to be on the other side too i'll enquire at college tomorrow

    I've just realsied now that I only wrote "differentiation" rather than "cell differentiation".I know it's a stupid point, but you know what thos examiners are like...:rolleyes: I just assumed that by using "cell" in the question, they would know I was talking about cell differentiation.lol.:o:

    Exactly man. I wrote just differentiation as well, I'm pretty sure you'd get the mark still.

    I put because the head grows proportionately with the body, i.e older seahorses have larger heads..
    yeah i said something like, the length of the seahorses head is directly proportional to the length of their bodies.
