    You choose a base in one of the four big letters in the middle and that is the first base in the amino acid. Then choose the second and then the third base, moving towards the outside. The very outside tells you what amino acid that triplet codes for.
    yeah i did understand it in the end but it was so weird haha worst paper ever

    I got 40.1% lol
    but thats if you divide your value by the total, but it asked for percentage decrease, so wouldnt you have divided by the biggest value, which was 6 hundred sumthin

    I really liked that paper. Honestly, it was great.

    Although, everyone else said it was awful, and now I'm not sure whether I've done well or not. Gaaarrrgghh.

    Did anyone else think that 6 marks for describing and explaining what happened to the wader population after the introduction of the hedgehogs was a bit weird? They'd told us why the population decreases (the hedgehogs eat eggs), so I wasn't really sure how to get 6 marks out of it.
    I worked out the percentage decrease for each and then explained why some had a higher decrease than others. I cant remember which was which but i said for the one that had the highest decrease that perhaps it was unable to hide its eggs as well as the one with the lowest % decrease or that the hedgehogs preffered the taste of that one.

    I'm sorry to hear how unrepresentative of the syllabus the paper seems to have been. I have spent the lest two months helping my daughter and her friend revise for this paper and it sounds like we have wasted most of our time. OCR have a responsibility to ensure that the paper covers the whole range of topics, not just those aimed at bearded ecologists.

    No idea if it's right, I just mentioned digestion, some waffle, break down proteins into amino acids, more waffle, then distributed and used in translation to make proteins.

    Tbh it was probably the most sciencey question on the stupid paper. Better than sheep.
    Now i feel really stupid :ahee:

    It's something I should actually know but couldn't produce in the exam.

    Rawwwr

    Lol you think sheep was bad; how about killer hedgehogs and whether we should kill them or not?

    OCR :sigh:

    I was honestly waiting for someone to say this and ask,"Are you on drugs?"

    Seriously, if anyone found this paper easy, you're a very clever person who is going to defo get into a good uni.

    Alas, all those that studied, might be for nothing

    1A) plant protein - animal protein (3)
    b) humus question regarding process (2)
    ?) question regarding use of a plant to restore nitrogen into soil (3)
    ?) refer to letters on diagram how nitrogen decreases (3)
    ?) why rare sheep kept in existence (2)
    ?) processes involved in allowing sheep to eat sea weed (lol) (2)

    only parts of question 1 i can remember :/ any1 feel free to add to it :P
    1)a) Plant protein - animal protein (3)
    b) Processes that lead to process B (humus) (2)
    c) How the processes C and D contribute to plant growth (reference to nitrifying bacteria).
    ?) What plant could the farmer use to restore nitrogen the soil? (2)
    ?) Why rare sheep should be kept in existence (2)
    ?) The two processes involved in allowing sheep to eat seaweed (2)
    ?) The two major problems that cause these sheep to be rare? (2?)
    ?) What are the three stop codons? (1)

    "explain the ethics behind killing hedgehogs" didn't realise we were sitting a WS/GS exam
    3 points...! I was like "errrr...people dont want to kill animals and...thats it?" In the end I said it was perhaps preferential over keeping the hedgehogs in captivity for their whole lives as some people would think this is more cruel than killing them. So i reckon I got 2 marks...
