    It was okay. The question about gene locus, my mind went blank. Also, got confused with species richness and species diversity so got ticked the wrong box.

    Also the question about which cell was totipotent because of the number of cells 'not switched off,' was the answer the one with 23000 genes or 11000 genes?

    And the 5 mark question about zoos and breeding programs, I just babbled on and on.

    Think overall thought it went okay, hope for a high B/low A

    omg those are all the questions i got confused with too o_o but i actually guessed the answers but when discussed it with my friends afterwards apparently got them ryt LOOL

    and i think it was 23000 genes because all the genes have to be available for the cell to be totipotent


    and omg i didnt have much to write for the golgi body question even though i knew the basic ideas but still got confused n made like random bullet points...

    i think the grade boundaries would be really high :/ because the paper was fairly easy [ i didnt like it though all the hard stuff i spent ages revising for didnt *** up lol ]

    I put 11,000 because it was number of genes 'not switched off,' which I thought meant the number of genes are switched on If 23,000 genes were 'switched on' it would be specialised, because stem cells need the genes activated, switched on, to become specialised
