    Could anyone please define 'genetic code' for me please? Don't seem to have it in the textbook :/

    Anything above 120 UMS = A

    A = 80% of full marks

    80% of 150 = 120

    UMS is a way of grading the exam in terms of difficulty. The harder the exam, the lower the average grades, the lower the UMS boundaries.
    Do you reckon UMS will be low for F211 as well? Really paranoid now lol.



    Cheers btw!

    compares the input from the receptor e.g. noise with previous similar inputs from that receptor to determine an appropriate response, i.e. if its a loud sharp noise, you look over in shock. not the best example. ygm?

    Association areas compare input with previous related experiences to understand what that input really means and judge an appropriate response...

    I finished writing all mmy notes on Thursday/Friday-ish, so I've been trying to get myself to sit still and go over them loads. Which I'm bad at!

    The only way I can memorise things are to explain them out loud to someone so my cat is now very well informed on this exam :beard:
