    Sleeping alot less...even slept with my Biology books last night:rolleyes: and then there's the Tuesday off..followed by Chem5 and C3 both in the afternoon... Bio5 at least is'nt so past paper orientated...much more textbook knowledge...Maths exams have all been very different this summer...wonder if the trend will be so with Bio5

    Haha, yeah I think I'm going to revise all night tonight and not go to sleep at all
    Ahh tough week :/ I wish exams were more spaced out. I've got S2 and English lit on thursday but I've hardly done any revision for them because I've been focusing on this so much
    I hope it's an easy paper

    yeh it's really confusing! where does PCR come into the process of genome sequencing? im confused with the order and what to include if asked 'how to sequence a genome' ahhhhh
    good luck to you too!

    Don't worry about it too much, it's only a specification point. I mean they wont say "Outline how to sequence a genome" [8 marks]
    They'll say "Outline how to sequence a genome with reference to..." things such as BACs or electrophoresis or automated DNA sequencing. They'll give us a clue what to write

    I don't know if this will help anyone but it's one of those topics I find really hard to remember all of the stupid details. I have a little neumonic for the Galapagos Island. FAT PIE.

    Fishing - Fish were fished to near extinction for food or caught accidentally in nets.
    Animals - Non native animals were introduced and competed with native animals. Pigs destroyed local animals eggs/Goats ate many native plants species.
    Tourism - Tourist numbers have increased dramatically. Development has lead to loss of habitat & increased pollution.

    Plants - non native plants have been introduced and compete with native species for light etc.
    Inhabitants - The number of people living on the islands has increased as there are more job opportunities due to tourism. More pollution.
    Eating - Animals, such as Giant Tortoises, were killed to be eaten. Became extinct/endangered.

    the timetable is much worse in the jan session and more so in jun nxt yr...at least there's been a 2 week break for math chem bio fmath peeps :P tough week indeed...and tough exams as well...the examiners have become slightly more inventive this yr it seems and hence much greater emphasis on understanding...OCR S2 is this late woah...Edexcel S2 was one the toughest papers set...Bio5 tends to have low grade boundaries...but even so... gaining 60 marks+ is not easy at all...I intend to ensure I know the textbook inside out along with all the points mentioned on the spec...good thing it is in the afternoon as wll

    If 65 marks is an A maybe something like 87 marks?
    Yeah that sounds about right

    So to get all 150 ums points, you have to get 87/100?



    SO confused now because our school forced us to do this exam in Jan without teaching us much and most people got a C which was 100/150 ums points. Is that roughly correct?

    Do we need to know all about the experimental evidence of auxins and gibberellins in apical dominance and stem growth? Or just a general idea of what apical dominance is?

    Stretch and challenge is really stuff you don't need to know unless you want to further your knowledge + understanding, but I've never looked at it before

    And for DRD4 just know how it can affect behaviour + how mutations can cause behavioural disorders etc

    Yep stretch and challenge is much better than the spread questions. They're so rubbish and vague. They're also closer to exam questions in style.


    Im currently writing out the spec and doing posters



    and some random exam technique!
