    I thought yesterday's paper was worse than the one in Jan...The questions didn't ask anything too in depth on what's we've learnt and poor paper overall. When I flipped the page and saw the question on protein and Actin/Myosin made an appearance in the paper, I thought I got given the wrong paper xD I said that globular proteins are affected by temperature?

    I put sea plantain becuase the further you are from the equator, the colder it gets and for sea plaintain at this temperature at each day, it mean dry mass always increased and i quoted some data from the table

    I mentioned as a percentage, graphs, statistical test

    I could do the diffrence only 2 marks, I put fibrous protein relax and contract whereas globular (enzyme) speed up rate of reaction

    dammit

    do they give you any marks for using data/justifying your answer even if the answer is wrong?

    i think they should. I hope they do. At least you attempted it.

    I put that but not sure if it was right.

    because the difference in growth (proportionally) between 10 degrees and 20 or whatever it was, was less than the difference in growth for the other plant between 10 and 20. ie on average there was less variation so i thought it grew better across range of temps. probs wrong though
    But i don't get why this would matter. The smartest people in my year put that too, and my mum agreed with them as well, but the other one was like 5 times more mass, so it wouldn't matter what the variation is coz the difference between the two plants was massive.

    unfortunately they don't. you might get the 1 mark that was data manipulation, but not for explanation if you got it wrong.

    It may not be right but it's just what I put....

    And yes, almost certainly marks will be awarded for data manipulation and justification.

    Oh it's obvious now that you've said it...Fingers crossed the grade boundaries are as low as Jan.

    because the raw mass doesnt matter as they are different species, its about which one grows relatively better. thats the way i saw it, but anyone could be wrong

    If I had to choose sides, I reckon you are right. I kinda see what you mean. I think i misinterpreted the question as a competition between the two species.

    The six marks on global warming were apparently to test your ability to cite rising co2 levels as increasing the greenhouse effect and then you were supposed to comment on other sources of co2 other than fossil fuels e.g. deforestation and carbon sinks and also recognise high co2 levels in the past when fossil fuels couldn't be the source e.g. ice cores and pollen grains showing it is a natural cycle. Anyway that's what my teacher said. And the plant one was bog sedge as it wasn't to do with the amount of dry mass it was a comparison between how well they adapted to temperature in other words the plant that showed the smallest percentage difference.

    Hope that helps

    They were not nice about the scientist disagreements question about fossil fuel, That was a lot of 6 marks to lose I think i can get 2/6 just 2 hurt my feelings

    On a side note away from the antibiotic, light wavelength and plantain/algae madness...

    What did everyone else get for the smaller questions as they are probably easier to remember and together we can all conjure up a definitive answer...

    I'll start..

    Opened the booklet, first one I believe I put PMAT
    The maths question was a 38 or 32 point something decrease. However I orgininally had 60 something and then saw light and knew it couldnt have been that high.

    Also directly below that question they had a target to meet, I put that they were going to meet the target by 0.04773 or whatever it was.

    Other answers include xylem, mitosis and.... I'll try and think of some more Anyone?

    Then ribosomes, 60 Amino Acids ...

    And i did 'Drugs' for rigor mortis.

    I totally agree with the top two, think I may have put muscle contraction for the bottom one :/

    for the target question i said they could meet the target as previously there is an average drop of 9% per 2 years or something. but then i said when extrapolating you have to look at best/worse case, and it may not be 100% sure etc

    and i put muscle decomp for rigor mortis. that cant be right though lookin back at it
