    Not all globular proteins are enzymes though, eg haemoglobin
    I thought this exam was horrible, even the multiple choice questions were harder than usual haha! Completely messed up the scientist question, I said something about some scientists maybe being funded by oil companies so they might be biased... I also wrote some other stuff but I can't really remember
    And what did everyone put for the two environmental factors affecting rigor mortis? The only one I could think of was temperature, I looked in the text book and that was the only one they mentioned, the only other factors they mentioned was about how much ATP is present in the body at TOD but that's not environmental so I didnt put that..?? Hate edexcel.

    Ditto. ****. Think the grade boundaries will be 50-54 for an A and 54-58 for an A*. I'm not having this, edexcel just screwed me over big time.

    what did you all say for the question with the leg and jaw rigor mortis graph and why pathologists would need to look at more muscles - thought that was pretty obvious but definitely hard to write about that for 4 marks!

    does any one happen to have the question paper? if anyone see's it around on the net please post it - the timings for the paper were terrible so I didn't get any time to check and would like a refresher to see what bullish answers I may have written!

    nono you know the question before that, the multiple choice - it gave you:
    - effect of drugs on the body
    - o2 conc in surroundings
    - decomposition of muscle
    - *some other one i cant remember*

    Was just Wondering whthr i WAS the ONLY candidate who actually wrote abt the Oil-funding companies Bribing the scientists lol!!! So they'd say Fossil Fuels dnt affect Temp
    As these Companies need fuels lol

    Hahah i ran 0ut 0f points!
    It was 6 marks nd aftr writing abt all the C02 and Defoestation nd blah blah this was wht i came up wd nd it was mentiond in the Guide too! :/:/ -_____-
    LOOOOL. I said that too. That scientists may work for oil companies so would say it doesn't so they don't lose business.
    I also talked about cows producing methane, so that will also cause global warming. I forget the third point.
