    That's what I felt :mad: .. The test was soo ambiguous IMO
    I know
    I didn't find it that hard, whereas everyone else was saying it was the hardest paper they'd ever done But I know the mark schemes will be ultra specific and I'll lose most of the marks
    It's just annoying because I know all the hard stuff really well and they're easy marks if you know the right terms to use, but they have to go on and on about bloody sheep and ladybirds instead

    That was a mind fank. I actually rechecked I was sitting the right paper lmao.

    It was ok, but the questions that I know about had the least marks compared to the questions I didn't no much about. I waffled sooo much.

    Because it was over 100 percent different. And it was percentage decrease so you don't divide by original.

    Also I talked about imprinting for innate behaviour because even though it's a mix of innate and learned I didn't think the book gave us any other examples... just remembered all the taxes/kineses/reflexes ****

    What? Loads of people at my school were going on about how they found it alright!

    But I agree. It felt like there should have been 10 different answers for some of them. And there was nothing which I felt was really hard. It was just.... Ambiguous (which made it difficult)

    Bit thrown by the nitrogen cycle stuff. I haven't even been taught any of that elm/cloning stuff as we didn't get time to, we got fobbed off with a badly written booklet to fill in - coupled with my inability to do no work outside of lessons - goodbye 22 marks! Forgot wtf CNS/peripheral systems were...

    I don't think the paper was that bad actually, couldn't work out why there were so many marks on a couple of Qs though. Sadly, i've done naff

    I laughed and cried. Laughed at the examiners for setting us an entire paper on ecology. And then cried, because I remembered I'm pretty darn awful at ecology!

    I fluffed up the tissue culture question, and only got about 4 marks in, and then totally had a mind blank about germ line and somatic. And left it blank. FML.

    BUT. I liked the nitrogen question. And the stuff about sheep. Seriously. "JUST DON'T FEED THEM GRASS OR THEY'LL DIE" etc.

    I got 0.92 and 0.08 for H/W and 52.7% for the other. Which are probably both wrong.

    A lot of people in mine got 43% for the waders decrease question though :/

    Hail my sovereign

    But that seriously though, I mean it was all I could do for most questions. I really wasn't 100% what they wanted me to say. I hope they can read my handwritting and check of the lines

    EDIT: fOR % DECREASE I got 40.1% but I can't remember how to do it. My maths is bad. I didn;t sign up for a maths exam -.-
