    Same here, i just tend to waffle on about everything but don't use the specific terms on the markscheme :/ I just realllly hope it's an okay paper, the thought of there being no resits if something goes wrong is making me so nervous :P

    wouldn't you get an A* dependant on UMS being 90% or 90/100 from the actual exam?

    it's possible, i'm aiming around 120 to be sure I can get my A, because i don't trust coursework marks sometimes.

    MMhmm i place too much trust in them - I got full marks in one then for the next one came in far too hungover and got 8/14 (or out of 12 i forget ) so hopefully the first mark was accurate

    hey guys.... the head of biology at my school writes the F215 Summer Paper and she said that what was written in the text book about homeobox genes and apoptosis was not how she liked and so wrote us a couple a4 sheets on it.... dunno if im looking into it too much but it could be a sign they may come up....
    my friend has her as a teacher and said that when he asked her about coppicing during a lesson earlier this year she said it wasnt important to know details like that....

    hope that helps
    i doubt she wrote or helped write the exam for ocr as from what i know,
    if a teacher teaches and writes the exam they cannot teach that exam boards specification. It would be very easy to cheat then.

    But i do agree to some extent, i think that homeobox and apoptosis will come up. along with meiosis.

    Loll, if my coursework marks stayed the same then I'd need 110 for an A overall but I really want an A in this, i've worked too hard not to get it, pulling a C to an A from AS ;|

    Hey. Just wondered whether anyone knew how much we should known on the Hardy-Weinburg Principle? I've grasped (well can copy from my notes, but by Monday!) that its a measure of genetic diversity among a group of individuals. And that its a mathematical model to calculate allele frequencies in populations with dominant and recessive alleles and the assumptions but do we need to remember the formula and how to manipulate it. I've tried to work it through and I know I wont remember it properly. Thank you.

    Do you do maths by any chance?
    The formula is a perfect square
