    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.

    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:
