    can anybody explain to the difference between gross primary productivity and net primary productivity....

    Can some Biology genius sort out the confusion ...

    from what I've learned

    Gross Primary productivity- the rate at which plants convert light energy into chemical energy

    Net Primary productivity- the remaining energy, after plants loose some energy through respiration...

    PS is net primary productivity the energy available to primary consumers after plants loose some energy through respiration..
    Oh I need to know this to

    I have a printed copy of all of the answers to the specification and i have literally just written each one out over and over again until i remember it. Then keep testing myself every day on it all and if i forget any just go over it again and again. Past papers and stuff too..

    You're right though - there is a lot of information, and a lot of detail! the grade boundaries last year were 65 for an A, 59 for a B out of 100.. so really quite low!! Lets hope they are that low this year ey!?

    Good luck!!!

    F211 had questions on heart and source sink sucrose...
    F212 had questions on smoking, biodiversity CITES :P DNA sequence, replication etc, Photosynthesis, Starch, Cellulose...near the start those missing words to fill hmmm there was stuff about Enzymes indeed.. Coenzymes etc
    F214 January had a 3 mark question on labelling parts of the brain...so anything is possible from F214 especially so...as there's only 1 hour to assess the topics...there's likely to be a few F214 questions in F215....
    What do do mean by this? lol

    That is good news! <sigh of relief> there is no way I can gain 80/100 given the fact I have to focus on C3 C4 M2 and Chem4 Chem5 as well:eek: Biology requires oneself to have a almost photographic memory...I've got all the spec points and answers to them as well Just ooodles of information...but hmmm something tells me big question on DNA...Meiosis etc

    At the PhilipAllan F214 Revision conference in November...the examiners kept stressing the importance of seeing Biology as being interlinked...with Cell Signalling in F211 being relevant in F214...and many other examples...look at the paper carefully and see how some F214 content features...all the past 2804 old spec questions are very similar too...

    Cool, yeah I was going to do that but i thought if there was a proper ocr one somewhere it would be better to use that
    Never mind, more writing for me!

    I made my notes as well and ever since I've read them 3-4 times and then do past papers. I'm planning to read them for the rest of the week and possibly look over the past papers I did.

    Yeah so why not use that and just remember stuff from there You can't really do anything else other than that!
    They wont pose any of the spec points as a question except maybe a definition anyway
