    urm, my advise would be to revise from the AQA textbook, cgp textbook and do as many past papers as you can
    Not that there are any past papers

    I'm saying the grade boundaries will e about the same as for Bio unit 2, if not lower. This is most likely because there are no new past papers for the specification.

    48 A* - Minimum for A* will be 44. Max 50-51
    39 A - Minimum 36. Max 42-43
    30 B - Minimum 28. Max 32-33

    And for the #UMSLADS like myself,

    100 UMS - 57/60 - Can't really see that going any lower than 54-55/60 I think. Max for 100 ums is probs gonna be 58-59. It's never been 100%=100 ums in the history of gcse biology exams.

    47 sounds about right but, A grade boundary will be much lower - not 4 marks lol, maybe around 8 marks lower....

    what does everyone think the grade boundaries will be for B3, higher/lower than B2

    Reasons for B3 lower
    1. Same time as b2 so revision is less thorough
    2. Not many people were as prepared for the 6marker and 5marker with the Animal production and Tadpole.

    Reasons for B3 higher
    1. All GCSE exams have increased Grade boundaries slightly
    2. It was easy and straight-forward apart from a few questions.

    It was something to do with exchange materials that it has fold in it causing a large surface area and therefore faster rate of diffusion.

    ahah lolface32, high five bro, you think we'll get a mark for that?
    however, looking back now i better answer would've been something like, the smaller the food chain, the more energy is transferred...
