    Psychology is pretty crap too
    I must contend with you on this - (for me) Psychology is AQA's ONE saving grace

    they are still *&^$%^&* though!

    Most people have done so much for the essay! I did my two and a half pages then chilled for 10 minutes.

    Pretty normal paper I'd say...by AQA's standards that is. Which is pretty ****ing ridiculous.

    Found the paper alright, didn't find it as bad as June 2010 but we'll have to wait and see :P Annoyed there was nothing on nerve impulses as that along with the synapse mechanism could have been around 12-13 marks worth or questions. Weird questions though, seemed to be a lot of application of principles rather than straight forward answers

    Why are biology papers always so irrelevant to the things we "think" we need to know ?

    Depending on:
    What the primary structure is?
    Where the Hydrogen/Disulphide/Ionic bonds are --> Determines tertiary structure?

    I think i put something about how the larva tissue (protein) was broken down by hydrolysis and that the resulting amino acids would have been assimilated into a different order during transcription, to produce a different protein (tissue) present in the pupa.

    What did people say about using volume per g per hour on that iguana question?
    I put because all the different iguanas are different sizes and will therefore take in varying amounts of oxygen as they have different respiration rates, so it allows for comparison....

    If it's a plasmid won't it be 3. I put 2 but later realised it will be two if it's a straight fragment only.
