    I never mentioned a carehome... :confused:

    13 As examination results come out again there will undoubtedly be concerns about the state of
    the education system. If the results are good then we will hear that the examinations are
    becoming too easy. On the other hand, if the results are poor, then we will hear about the poor
    state of funding for the education sector. Since there will be negative stories in the press either
    way, we should ignore these stories and not worry about them.
    Which one of the following is the best statement of the flaw in the above argument?

    A The options are restricted to the results being either good or bad.
    B It makes an unwarranted attack on the press.
    C It makes a prediction about the future which is not supported by any evidence.
    D It fails to establish that examinations are becoming easier.
    E The fact that a negative story is inevitable does not mean that it should be ignore

    why is the answer E, and not A

    ? it's so confusing! E assumes that the story will always be invetiable...

    so you don't know if it will be or not!

    A is right in my eyes!

    15 Although child road deaths and serious injuries have fallen by 52% in the past ten years, we
    should not assume that lessons in road safety are no longer vital for school pupils. A
    Government study reports that in 2006 almost 1,300 boy pedestrians and 700 girl pedestrians
    were killed or seriously injured in road traffic accidents, and that 500 child cyclists were killed or
    seriously injured, more than 400 of whom were male.
    Assuming that 2006 is a representative year for road accidents involving child pedestrians and
    cyclists, which one of the following is a conclusion that can be drawn from the passage above?

    A There are more boys than girls who own and ride bicycles.
    B Girls spend less time than boys as pedestrians unsupervised by adults.
    C Boys are much more likely than girls to take risks when cycling.
    D
    Boys are more than twice as likely as girls to be killed or seriously injured as
    pedestrians or cyclists.
    E
    Lessons in road safety specially designed for male pupils would reduce child road
    deaths

    i'm a fool..

    note to self, please read a question carefully, and do what you may feel is obvious! but not blatant! look into the question...

    it says twice as likely...immediatley you see 1300 and 700 and say, no...but read carefully and you'll realise that actually, you need to add both up!

    -slaps self-

    ps guys, i got less than 30% when i did the specimen for section 1

    9 Which one of the following, if true, would present the strongest challenge to the inference that
    the vervet monkeys in the study showed preferences that varied in accordance with their sex?

    A
    The more aggressive sex monopolised the toys that were the most attractive to the
    monkeys.
    B Male monkeys lost interest in the toys they chose more quickly than the females.
    C
    Monkeys also show preferences for different kinds of food when they are given a
    choice.
    D
    No other species besides monkeys has been observed to demonstrate preferences
    for different toys.
    E
    Vervet monkeys exhibit signs of social behaviour, for example warning each other of
    danger.


    I am going to debate this question, it's VERY vague..why is the answer B?

    Could someone mark my section 3 BMAT essay:

    'Science is a great and glorious enterprise - the most successful, I argue, that human beings have ever engaged in. To reproach it for its inability to answer all the questions we should like to put to it is no more sensible than to reproach a railway locomotive for not flying or, in general, not performing any other operation for which it was not designed.'

    (The Limits of Science, Peter Medawar)

    From the statement, I understand that science has addressed and found solutions and broadened our understanding of many different concepts. Science has no clear specific operation for which it was designed but essentially is an attempt by human beings to find a cause and reason for everything in existence.

    An underlying principle of science is to suggest a plausible mechanism or explanation to questions. An example is science has figured out how the body attempts to recover itself after an illness, which is done by the immune system and the action of B and T lymphocytes, which is a plausible explanation and has been proven through tests.

    But on the other hand, science can only be advanced in certain cases if we know 'how' to advance it. For psychological disorders we attempt to find the basic root of the displayed abnormal behaviour caused by the mind, but there are no clear-cut ways, as the human mind is ultimately so complex that it hasn't fully been understood by science yet.

    Another example of how science is limited is through its technological advancements. Science is unable to provide a definite answer to if extraterrestrial beings exist, because humans have not made enough progress yet to check out the whole universe and confirm if they exist. Although our knowledge and potential through science is gradually increasing, it relies primarily on human existence.

    In conclusion, science can give plausible explanations for a number of cases, but its advancement is dependant on human advancements and so it is a mutual relationship between the two that gives rise to the whole concept of 'science'.
