    Make sure you read up on enzymes in your green biology book: Biology for OCR: Mary Jones pages 134-140. Make sure you know them well and use keywords like enzyme-substrate complex. Make sure you're comfortable with working out MEANS - don't call them AVERAGES! Read all of the instructions for the practical through once before you do it!!! The practical was about how clear a substance turns at varying temperatures. The idea that the enzyme is breaking down this particular substrate and causing the substance to turn clear at its optimum temperatures (body temperature - biological catalysts, etc.). It's easy. You'll do fine, just take your time and ask plenty of questions beforehand! You'll need to construct a table to record your results.

    Your quan and qual isn't going to include much science. It's all about your skills in terms of independent work and following instructions to the word. Your evaluative is the science paper - ask your teacher for a heads up!
