    Ectopic beats question asked us to Describe and Explain. So even if we we only said that the QRS complex was inverted and there was no P-wave for the ectopic beat, leading to a skipped heart beat according to the second picture (forgot what it was called), I think that's 3/5 of the marking points. They gave us a whole page to blabber on about it so that question couldn't have gone too bad
    Whats QRS ?

    With regards to that paper...just FML
    I messed up the soda lime one reading what everyone's put, have severly messed up that stupid ectopic heartbeat question.
    The ONLY question i found "easy" was the one which basically split action potentials into 3 bits :\
    sooo 10/90 reckon thats A material? lol

    I don't think the grade boundaries will differ that much from those seen for 6BI04 in Jan 2010; it will probably be around 55-57/90 for an A maybe but I don't think it will go much lower.

    Etopic (or whatever) and the soda lime question! How did people find that?!


    Disastrous.

    I revised so insanely hard for this exam.

    Still in shock I managed to mess it up.

    I was getting continuously 90% + in all the practice papers.. and just fell flat on my face when it came to the real thing.

    yer i know that, but in the question it said look at paragraph 1 on page 7, which went on about nerves? this threw me.
    this is what I thought...
    Which made me think it must have something to do with sending impulses to secondary messengers to start protein synthesis...

    I honestly had no idea...

    The QRS complex is the big peak (ventricular systole) that occurs between the P wave and the T wave.

    Think overall the paper was ok :-) despite rubbish and incomplete revision, I felt comfortable till Q7 lol

    Hardest questions in first bit was definately the ectopic heart beat one :-s

    The pre-release was definatelyyyy hard. Had no clue about anything except the parkinsons question and few related qs after that. Out of 30, il be extremely lucky to score 10 from that.

    At least the next bunch of A2s will have some clue of what to expect :-s

    I hope my courseworks save me too :-s

    Oh dear, that was not what I had hoped for. It wasn't terrible, but it wasn't great either :/

    The article stuff was ridiculous. How can Edexcel set questions asking us to read through the whole article to find examples of things when they only give 1h30? Our college has already complained once about the time being too short, hopefully it will complain again.

    Ive just been looking through the past papers I was doing in preparation for this exam...(to try and see how I could have gone so so wrong)

    The past papers were 60minutes for 40 marks.

    This paper they gave us 50 extra marks to go fetch.... and only 30min extra to do this.

    I swear thats abit unfair
