    It asked why the underside of the leave's uptake of IAA increased with higher temperatures.
    But it also stated that the spray that they were using contained IAA did it not? Or something along those lines

    I think that question was hinting at meiosis. This paper was the most synoptic i've ever seen aqa put out, ignoring the essay of course, in the exam i felt more like i was being tested on my unit 2 and 4 knowledge than unit 5.

    Preaching to a choir, i feel like AQA have thrown my university chances down the drain. I could practically recite the textbook i'd revised so hard for this then boom, graphs, and ****ing iguanas.

    i feel the same
    they've even ruined my summer
    do you think around 50 - 55 raw marks will be a A
    or is this too optimistic lol?
    what sort of mark do you think you got?>

    Does anyone know the grade boundaries for this exam?
    I need 98 UMS to get an A overall, which is a B right? otherwise no uni

    What were the grade boundaries for a B last year? Thanks.
    I think I probably got something like 50% in this exam

    55% was a B last year and the exam was slightly easier than this one so i think you should get at least 98ums if you did indeed get 50% raw
