    Hey your a hopeful medic too

    I need 67% in this paper for an A overall, but chemistry is really dire for me.
    same here, i need really high for chem, but i dont think i even got 60% in that exam i panicked so much, i was aiming for 90% in chem but i dont think theres any point, everything ruined firt the school doesnt tell me about an access scheme to uni since im the first ever successful applicant for medicine, now, my backup would except an A in physics instead but i havent done much because i needed 37% for a B so i just focused on bio, now i need to aim for an A in physics and i have 2 days left

    For some strange reason I wrote antlers on that one, then crossed it out and wrote antennae, and then crossed that out and wrote legs.
    same but i just couldn't spell antennae

    The epistasis explanation question.
    I'm pretty sure it was complementary epistasis. But didn't it have an element of recessive epistasis?

    Darn! I forgot to write annealing, I just put that DNA and plasmid join because of complementary bases via DNA ligase bla bla.
    And for that Chi-squared, didn't the question only want the value (0.32) and to comment, ie whether to reject or accept the null hypothesis given the degrees of freedom and below or above the critical value (accept null was my conclusion, and explanation).
    I also put just electron microscope, didn't know about scanning...ah well. I'm sure I did just fine. Chemistry will be much better I think.
    This thread is worrying me now so I'm a'goin
    isnt annealing used for attaching a primer to a dna sequence in PCR?

    What did people talk about for the increasing frequency of the mutated DRD4 allele? Was I the only other person that saw that question and immediately saw SEX?

    I didn't want to jump to that straight away so I started by waffling about how it wasn't a hugely disadvantageous mutation and that most people carrying it would survive to reproductive age, and then started talking about promiscuous unprotected sex based on the "impulsive risk taking" prompt.

    Or did I just read that question completely wrong :p:

    legs in the place of antennae which I spelt wrong in the exam as 'antenni' idiot. But they'll know what I mean haha.

    i couldnt spell antennae either! mind just goes blank at times, think i put 'anteni' haha
    and yeah i talked about recessive epistasis for that question
    oh well...just have to wait till results day

    ahaha BOOM is exactly how I'd describe that q, what about the other one on protein/polypeptide stuffs?
    **** I think i screwed chi square :s here is what I did 1/2 x 27 and 1/2 x 23! :/ while it should have been 1/2 x 50 and same :/

    Arghh.... I wonder how much would they deduct seeing that I spoke of my result compared to the prob. table.
    Yea about the protein stuff I went onto to talk about lac operon hint "structural proteins" + Transcription +translation.

    so badly talked about the impulsive nature being more attractive, thus more likely to attract mates (or multiple mates :P) and pass on their alleles to offspring. Think I got a bit carried away though.

    Actually I think I wrote: There are antlers on its head that look like legs. Will I lose that mark?

    antlers= deer antennae= insects. Oops.

    for epistasis ones, i wrote complementary gene action HOWEVER in a past paper id done which was similar said recessive, so i crossed and wrote recessive epistasis. Also when it asked ABOUT pigments interaction i wrote about binding to the genes and acting as transcription factors as it masks other alleles expression. Not sure if that the right idea though, and not sure anyway STOP talking about it. Its over, nothing more we can do

    No, I did that as well :p:

    Yeah I talked about how people with that allele were extroverted and promiscous and those without it spend all day on tsr...or something like that.

    I spoke of environments role along with genetic role and went onto relate how environment helps in switching on/off these genes.I don't know but I sub-consciously I had an urge to write wealth being related to it...

    hahah I just immediately jumped in with sex. I think I wrote that impulsive people tend to desire more sexual partners because they bore easily or something. Also because they're exploratory they move around the country sowing oats as it were
