    i think nearly 2/3 of my bio class failed this exam because half of them looked through the paper, had a go at the 1-2 marker questions and just sat there for the rest 1 1/2 hours lol....i went through my exam paper like 5 times haha and just scribbled things down where i thought was appropriate.

    that's exactly what I put, a similar question came up before...
    Sweet

    At first I'd put like 26 26 9 9 or whatever and matched both rows as though they were both a full DNA strand, before I actually read the question then I kinda clicked they were the 2 seperate strands of one DNA helix >_<. And the fact they used base pairs = 74, instead of saying 148 bases. Seemed kinda a tricky question for 2 marks.

    Why do you keep asking, like I said before about 90% of people got 55.55555% as their answer, so however you rounded it 55.56/55.6% is likely the right answer. Obviously no1 can confirm this, but yes I'd say its pretty sure to be right.

    Ah, that 65% is just a general guess, going by the boundaries from the last few papers...
    From the last 4 sessions, they've been:

    Jan '11: A(64%) B(56%) C(45%)
    Jun '10: A(69%) B(61%) C(53%)
    Jan '10: A(61%) B(54%) C(48%)
    Jun '09: A(65%) B(58%) C(51%)
    - thanks alot, a may *just may* stand a chance still

    I don't think the row should of been the same, if you got 11 for A on the top row, I think you should of got 11 for T on the bottom row. (As they were 2 strands of the same DNA, so should match up with each other).

    I got like 26 19 9 20 as they all add to 148 (the 74 base pairs).
    _______ 19 26 20 9
    Ahhh I'm sorrry!
    I think I was in a bad place stressed in the exam!!!
    I think I put 26 26 11 11
    FML I can't really remember haha but I certainly got 11 for either A or T on top row. At least each row added up to 74 in mine I suppose?!
    The exam stress turns my brain into mush!! Your answer sounds good Thanks

    Hehe I could be wrong, but I guess you'd still get one mark as long as you matched up A's and T's and C's and G's somewhere, and perhaps made sure you got 148 total . So I figure you should at least get 1/2 ^_^.

    Yeah exam stress sucks, I was sat next to the radiator and kept thinking how warm it was ~.~

    Use the thing that other guy posted

    "Jan '11: A(64%) B(56%) C(45%)
    Jun '10: A(69%) B(61%) C(53%)
    Jan '10: A(61%) B(54%) C(48%)
    Jun '09: A(65%) B(58%) C(51%)"

    So guess around ~50%, so 43 marks or so?

    I was wondering if anyone had posted the exam questions in a earlier post or an unoffical mark scheme?

    I found the paper okay but I left little time for last 2 pages-15 minutes! Not good! So think I didn't answer about 18 marks in the whole paper. Nightmare!
    Did anyone else find they ran out of time? How was it for you guys?

    This is heavily frustrating. I finished the exam in 45mins and had so much time to check through and I did but found no mistakes. Lost around 18 marks I reckon. Urgh. Hope its an A

    I got that, and i think quite a few others did-makes it highly likely, but not sure if we can confirm it-only the examiners can do that.

    Do you mean full marks UMS? For this exams its 140 UMS for full UMS. I found this UMS conveter for the exams a few weeks ago, so i can tell you them for the past few papers:

    June 2009- 67/85 converts to 140/140 UMS
    Jan 2010-64/85 converts to 140/140 UMS
    June 2010-73/85 converts to 140/140 UMS
    Jan 2011-64/85 converts to 140/140 UMS

    I thinks its pretty good how we can drop 21 marks, and still get full UMS marks. I think it will probably be around 68-72 for this exam, but i'm just being pessimistic.
