    im getting confused, i do the SNAB course but looking at the specification it seems like a lot of the things in the book arent necessary like knowing testosterone and doping, it says we just need to now how the hormones and transcription factors work?

    Parts of the eye, the structure of the rods and cons, the nerve impulse pathway(whole procedure ie bleaching,etc), the response of the eye to bright & dim light. That's it.. well that's what I think

    Personally I think this exam is disgustingly hard..

    In Jan 2012, Grade Boundaries were out of 90 and...

    65 - A*
    59 - A
    53 - B
    48 - C

    They're pretty low but the 5 mark questions I struggle to get more than 3 on..

    Hows everyone else finding it :/ ?
