    Which essay did you do. I liked cycles because I did that one before. Didn't like the look of the other one though.
    I hope the grade boundaries are low too. :awesome:

    Lol I did that one too. In fact it was the only one I had practiced :awesome: I planned a few others but never wrote them out fully. Although the examiners will probably find a way to explain why nothing I wrote is relevant.

    Really hoping for at least 20 marks on the essay. Then I only need about 35 marks (this is based on the provisional grade boundary for an A) from the rest of the paper to get my A...

    Just did some calculations and 35 marks from the rest of the questions is only about 45% That makes me feel a bit better

    What makes me feel awful is that I'm one of the only people who actually struggled with the essay I was trying so hard to not leave any gaps for the stupid one or two markers earlier on in the paper, and didn't leave enough time to plan my essay thoroughly. I'm on an ABB offer, and biology is really my only shot of getting that A, so I could do with low boundaries as well.
