    lol anyone reading the AS book for synoptic knowledge?
    I was planning to, but I'm still struggling to learn all of this module so I think I'm going to make sure I'm as okay as I can be on this first
    I'm going to have a look over f214 definitely but that's because i'm resitting it so i may as well , especially the neurones stuff
    If they link anything to AS I think it'll be from f212

    i've forgotten practically everything in AS! any tips on what i should really go over....
    Conservation/Biodiversity because it links to Module 3 :yep:
    I've forgotten what else is in AS!
    I think anything synoptic will be from f212. Maybe some of the enzyme stuff?

    yeah - that's exactly what i was thinking.. Plus i don't have any motivation at all in revising AS content again. I need a D in this to get an A overall - so it shud be ok even w/o AS stuff just scared i might epically fail llol

    My bull****ting usually ends up in me writing about 6 lines for a 2 mark question, then not even getting the 2 marks! :/

    My perfect exam will be fill in the gaps and tick-boxes, like back in GCSE?
    :O

    you got gap fill and box ticking for GCSE????

    mine were identical to these, just GCSE questions rather than A level and didn't require word perfect answers

    Yeah, tbh all the synoptic stuff I've seen on past papers seems fairly easy, like naming the type of microscope used which is stuff you'd kind of remember anyway I might read over some of the AS stuff but I doubt I'll do any proper revising of it
    Ahh that's good! I'm suree you'll be fine haha

    Thigmotropism is when a plant grows around another plant/stick, using it for support. So basically its tropism is "around the other structure"

    Make sense?

    Just did Jan '11...What the hell was with that comparing PCR to in vivo or whatever one. Got 0/8 for that



    Thankfully grade boundaries were super low
    When i seen PCR i was like yes !! ... but then it asked to compare and i messed up . if it standardly asks what and how does pcr occur ? ill be happy

    Galapagos is pretty easy i think, it's kind of just common sense as long as you remember a few of the animals and a few key words
    I know I did the june 2010 a couple of days ago and got 58 :/ don't even want to attempt the jan one haha. what grade do you need/want in this exam?

    Hey everyone! How's all your revision going?

    My perfect exam paper would be:
    massive questions on transcription/translation
    big question on sliding filament model
    Big question on lac operon :P
    A genetic question, with a hardy-weinberg or chi squared thrown in
    PCR question,
    Artificial cloning and plant cloning
    Incorporating a gene into a bacterial plasmid etc
    NONE OF MODULE 3 haha
    and a bit about behaviour!

    I would be so happy if that all came up ;D
