We have covered 2.1.1 to 2.1.8 and 2.2.1 to 2.2.12.

It seems to be too biased on genetics for my liking. It's not that it isn't interesting, some diversity would be nice.

Oh yea i remember doing that before exams something to do with the three types of mutation and a specific amino acid being displaced which causes anaemia i think ;p.

Ok guys, this is our plan! I know how to get us full marks in the June exam!!! Everything we're learning now, everything written in the book and specification, forget it! We don't need that! It has nothing to do with the exam. We should improve our ************ skills! I'm feelin' that aardvarks are going to come up in June.


btw I love genetics :coma:
