    Yes, it must have been about natural selection because it asked why it was common. I doubt they would have wanted us to ramble on about dominant alleles or anything.

    I wrote that people who are exploratory and impulsive will explore their surroundings to find food, and so they can escape and hide when chased by a predator. I could have mentioned learning how to do new tasks, but I didn't know how to word it.
    I wish I'd have wrote that. I looked at it from a slightly different angle. Basically, it said "more impulsive". So I put: "more impulsive = more sex = more kids = more of these alleles."

    It's an enzyme. It can be used over and over without the shape changing.

    oxygen concentration
    amount of moisture on filter paper
    cant remembr the last one

    do you think the top two would score marks, thank you very much everyone

    yes mate. Do you think I'd lost many marks on the first 8 marker for not mentioning reverse transcriptase but all the key words of complimentary sticky ends, ligase, same restriction enzymes then replica plating?

    yeaa I should think so, because there are two methods of getting the gene, which is using reverse transcriptase and isolating using restriction enzyme, (which is what I put down)

    ahhh i was close to tears in the exam lol! Ive got an offer for medicine which i really need to meet, need about 114ums from this exam to get an A. For the squirrel one right, i didnt mention carrying capacity and stuff but i did mention factors that can affect it such as food, space, water and that over time the resources would reduce therefore the squireels coudlnt maintain such a high population. How many marks was taht question and do you think it would suffice? thanks alot <3

    I didn't write about carrying capacity too, I started rambling on about competition and resources running out, need to get 118 ums to get an A. but I think what you wrote about food, space etc will get you marks i wrote similar stuff not sure how much marks it would get though but there may be many reasons in mark scheme, so may not be as bad as you think

    That's what I put. I was reading the post you quoted and was like "oh god, why did I write what I put". It made sense when I wrote it, it kind of makes sense now but it seems a weird thing to put in a biology exam, it is OCR though... I put it because I was reading some random thing about hypomania or something where people don't see consequences to actions and are impulsive and it mentioned sexually promiscuous behavior.

    What did people put for the "..... Component of the rainforest" which was relating to decomposers in the question where you fill in the gaps? I don't know why but didn't know what to put there but the rest were obvious.
    I was shocked that loads of people at my school didn't realise the fly had legs on it's face despite that exact example being in the textbook.
