    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
    question on sirna= 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
    NAA= 1+1
    pupaya = 1 +1

    LOL it's still not better i need a D to get an A :-( BUT a high D and i literally cried after than exam i never have done before i found IT VERYY HARD anddddddd i always get >90% in biology exams with a great feeling but this one JUST KILLLED me veryy verrrrryyy hard!!!! ((((

    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 :/

    but you might get the D? and besides...normally a D in Biology is like 35%
    and why do you think you got 2 + 1 + 1 in breadth, QWC and relevance on the essay?

    which essay did you do?

    i feel exactly the same. i'm so nervous about results day already and i can't fully enjoy my summer. i think i have also got low 30s/40s. reckon i scored 0 marks on some questions, like the dna one. i really don't know how i've done in the essay.

    me too... but if we all thought we've done bad then there'll be low grade boundaries so dont worry!

    what did you get in other units?

    could someone just make sure please
    would around 52 raw marks on this paper give around 102 ums?
    i think it should. everyone i have spoken to found it hard, so a B (98UMS) would be about 50 marks. so 52 should be around 102

    i know :'( i thought chemistry would be the subject to make me miss my grades! i need bang on a B in this paper to get an A in biology but ahh im so worried i've massively ****ed up! how did you find it??

    I know i thought i was really good at biology and safe with getting an A, but the last last few questions with pupae and the temperature regulation were a nightmare, touch and go i'd say. You just never know with the grade boundaries best of luck anyway

    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
    I took the same approach as you, started with the nitrogen cycle and then went on to talk about a water cycle, with h20 being taken in by root hair cells due to active transport of nitrates (et al).

    hey will i lose marks on essay if i didnt relate every cycle to the part of the q where it said when one prduct is made it is used in the next cycle etc
    however i did write about the
    nitrogen cycle, carbon, cell, krebs, calvin, cell, muscles, predator prey, oestrrous and homeostatic and cardiac
    thanks just abit worried i need 22 + to be on the safe side but im not sure

    dw i didn't link it back each time either. i don't think we'll lose any scientific content marks. i'm sure loads of people didn't link it either. i did cell cycle,homeostasis, krebs,calvin, muscles, PCR, predator prey, carbon and nitrogen. so the same as you... nearly

    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
    This made me so happy. I love you man, *dances*

    That's as bit strong isn't it? If you care so much why are you even bothering posting on here? The really sad thing is you apparently getting so worked up about it...:confused:
