    you had to include 0 as one, so really you divided by 0.8, the answer was 75, they would never give it to you as a decimal for beats per minute
    I love how every one's debating between 85.7 and 100 and then you say 75 . Yours actually makes a lot of sense, saying as the answer on everymark scheme so far for calculating heart rate has been 75...

    Judging by past exam papers the amount you need for an A ranges between 37/60 to 40/60. But then after that the grade boundaries are really small like there is 5 marks difference between grade A + B.
    the paper i sat last year it was 45/60 which was the highest its been (june 10)

    ok people it was 1.4....you had to do 6.5-2.3=4.2

    so.. It was between 0-3 seconds

    4.2 divided by 3 = 1.4 !!!

    I counted up the marks that I think were 100% right, being really harsh and I got 42. Really hope that's an A.
    I'm guessing the grade boundary will be lower this year. Some really random HSW questions were in that paper today.

    What is a UMS calculator could you give me a link. Could you just explain to me how this UMS works, it's so friggin confusing. I bet AQA to this stupid UMS and awkward marking thing so people don't realize when they make mistakes.

    I'm on to you AQA. I'm watching you...

    Damn that was a hard paper. I didnt even get time to finish half of it!! did anyone else have this problem!!

    I was so annoyed about the last question. Genetic Engineering is a unit 2 topic, why was it in a unit 1 paper!! My Biology teacher said that our school is going to complain to the exam board about that question. Probably got like a D in this paper. Also was the answer to the very first question hydrolysis??

    I know. I hate HSW questions. I'm doing a biology exam not how science works, I expect to be asked questions about biology not how to control variables and give out placaebos and making a fair experiment.
