Hey, i've noticed for the june paper 2010 they grade boundaries are something like 58/90 = A 53/90 = B 49/90 = C etc.

I know grade boundaries differ depending on the difficulty of the exam, but are the boundaries usually pretty similar to this?

These boundaries mean if we miss 32 we still get an A lol, just seems a bit crazy

Wow thats great news for the mock I did then haha. But really, most times the grade boudaries are higher im guessing. It must have been really tough for people and everyone did poorly. But generally im guessing they would at least be around 65 for an A. Even thats 25 marks lost. Those values seem very low though so don't expect them to be that low in the real exam.

Exactly what I was thinking xD
Although those boundries seem nice, I don't expect them in the real exam either.

I don't think there has been many papers on this exam, but I think there has been slightly more than 2.

More biological? That sounds interesting. Maybe it's time to revise more on the keywords >_<

I keep forgetting the word photophosphorylation, the process in using energy to make ATP. I mean... It's a horribly long word

Tick the box questions for the win...

yeah tick the boxes are pretty neat! although i managed to get one or 2 wrong in the past! by simply not reading questions correctly.

photophosphorylation... i just think of light energy (photo) then phosphorylation (adding phosphate group to a molecule) - seems complex then also tho ha!
