    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.
    the point of an exam isnt just so that you can spend 2 years learning how to copy out of a textbook, its meant to examine you.
    but dont worry because if youre smart you would have done better than you think i should know because i was shocked when i saw my grades last year despite knowing i had ballsed up some of my exams .x

    Thank you for that. Best news I've heard all week.

    Biology exams with AQA are basically an example of directional selection in action. Those with phenotypes for applying their knowledge are selected for, while those without are selected against. Over time, the population shifts in the direction of these lucky individuals; the frequency of the HSW allele increases and the population of biology students therefore get better at answering HSW questions (or so AQA would hope :rolleyes:).
    thats excellent lol

    okay about this cycles essay , it said cycles thats products are what triggers or is the reactant in other words for a new cycle so surely the only cycles that were relevant were

    cell cycles
    krebs cycle
    calvin cycle
    nitrogen cycle
    and carbon cycle??

    i wrote about synapses but crossed it out cos i panicked and didnt want to lose marks for writing irrelevant material!
    plus im not really sure if the menstrual cycle really fits the question wording?
    aqa should be scrapped before it ****s too many people over!

    lol
    this is what i thought too!

    i wrote about similar to what you wrote except that instead of cell cycle i wrote about the water cycle...like transpiration? because after when nitrates are produced in the nitrogen cycle; nitrates are actively transported into the xylem for water to follow in by osmosis?

    so yeah...this is why i didnt write about menstrual cycle and the action potentials and stuff

    My thought on seeing the cycles question was "All of biology is a god dam cycle, could you be any more generic"

    thank god for that someone else who took the same approach to this truly awful question

    fingers crossed we answered it correctly, my thinking is they defined a cycle and asked for us to write about cycles that fit the questions definition!

    good luck btw what did you think of it overall?

    The chief examiner of biology did a talk at my school a few weeks ago and he said that this exam is harder than last years and provisionally an A would be 56 marks. It is lovely and low so don't worry about uni


    so if an A - 56
    what would be a B, C and D

    Pleaseee?

    yes on the essay = 12 + 1 + 1 +2

    then on the exam: first q = 3,
    then q on acetluy choline = 2
    question on menstrul cycle = 1+2+1+2+1
    question on sirna= 2+2+1+1
    a mark for the 80 0 0 = 1
    stem cells = 2
    nervous system = 1+1
    question on krebs = 2
    iquanas = 1+1
    pupa = 2 + 1
    kinesis= 1+2

    cn't remember rest of q's BUT this is maximum and in relaity i think i have 32 raw marks coz i'm being generous up there omg i have been crying soooooooo much since that biology exam :/
