    surely the pupil is black because it absorbs every wavelength of light? does anyone know what the answer was?
    this is what i said, but apparently the pupil doesnt absorb.....but that wasnt in out spec, so how were we supposed to know it anyway...? dumb paper

    i genuinely dont think i am going to be going to university anymore because of this horrific paper, all just obscure semi-relevant questions, data analysis and basically copy and pasting from the article, no genuine content.

    hmm i'm wondering why people keep arguing about the colour of the pupil.isnt the answer in the pearson edexcel textbook pg214?look at the diagram.the iris part.there's a sentence stating THE AMOUNT OF PIGMENT IT CONTAINS GIVES THE EYE ITS COLOUR. so i think the answer of this question should be the pigments on the iris i guess? i'm not really sure but that's what i wrote in my bio 5 paper ><

    The photoreceptors absorb most light that enters them which is why the pupil appears black. Nothing to do with the iris.

    How can I open these files once they're downloaded?

    Edit: As in, is there a program I need to download first to open them? The format isn't recognised :P

    It's a B, one mark from an A. So you might get the A.

    Grade boundaries for all edexcel papers:

    Same, I remember being annoyed about how little content there was, but can't remember how much I might've scored, so scared.
