    Hello friends and foes.

    This is a thread dedicated to the mighty exam OCR have decided to creatively name "F211"

    Ask each other exam questions (hard ones) that you happen to come across.

    Or if you have any other questions just talk about them below.

    Thank you and have a good evening! P.S

    Hello lilytheblue

    I am not too sure as I have not, as of yet, sat this exam.

    I would recommend checking out the examiners report.

    How about you post the questions you think are hard on this for others to answer? It would be a helpful thread for us all if we could get more people asking things on it

    EDIT: I have managed to find this for you: http://www.ocr.org.uk/Images/136529-...ts-january.pdf

    Enjoy.

    Why are you excited? :lol:

    i dont know probs because its a different way of revising!

    okay so i would answer that like this
    i would give 2marks for describing xlyem and 2 about phloem

    - xylem- made up of cells such as Xylem vessels,
    - these are lignified and this makes them waterproof and are involved in the movement of water and minerals around the plant

    -Phloem- consists of companion cells and sieve tube elements
    -companion cells are involved in translocation and uses ATP

    Does this seem reasonable? obviously there is a lot more i could have said

    I'm glad I have the F212 module out of the way, this unit is so much nicer!
    Not a huge fan of plant transport though.
    yea F211 is piss

    I am not a fan of that either, probably the hardest thing in F211 is the mass flow hypothesis. A big question came up on that not so long ago so I think we should be okay.

    I think we will get a big one on mitosis.

    F211 is easy, but you have to be specific, mentioning the extra word gets you the mark. For example, saying xylem vessels instead of just xylem.

    School prize day was today and there was prizes for anyone who got 7A grade or more at GCSE, which I did.

    However, I didn't get a certificate? What the ****? About 10 other people did, but not me Even though I got better grades than most of them..
