    Hint Hint;
    Candidates should use their skills, knowledge
    and understanding to:
    ■ interpret information about cloning techniques
    and genetic engineering techniques
    ■ make informed judgements about the economic, social
    and ethical issues concerning cloning and genetic
    engineering, including genetically modified (GM) crops.
    Economic:Costs alot (the process). Produces a large yield.
    Social:More food for people (less hunger). People prefer organic sourced food not GM.
    Ethical: Altering gods creations, affecting biodiversirty that God created.
    LIKELY TO Be 6 Marker 2marks for each except last Q and 1 mark for spelling.

    why?
    It was the unit I was taught 1-2 years ago, haven't been taught it since. I haven't done as much revision on it. I don't like tropisms (Specifically in remembering where the majority of the auxins are accumulated), inoculation (Probably won't come up).

    Biology 2/3 was my first exam. Biology 1 is right bang in the middle. Hence why I've under-revised.

    There's hardly anything about it they might give two programs and you have to compare something like that

    yeah i understand but ill advise you to revise the topics you dont understand just read the page and keep reading it until you can say it without looking at the page .
    i think plant tropism , pathogens diseases, vaccination , carbon cycle,cloning, genetic engineering and cloning will definitely come up .

    Just get your sleep, you perform worse if you don't get enough.

    Luckily for me I don't feel pressure. I lost my calculator before 2 chemistry exams in a row, wasn't really annoyed or scared. Luckily all the questions were doable without a calculator. Just chill.
