    My hand is in such pain atm

    What did people get for the percentage increase?

    And I think 99.9% did the membranes essay

    I talked about thylakoids membranes, mitcondrial membranes and

    Pre and post synaptic membranes

    Not sure If I'm on the right topic there or not :/

    Yes it's definitely something to pick up on , especially with regard to hydrogen ion movement from the Matrix into the inter membrane space

    Is it just me or was a very small percent of the paper based on core knowledge? The number of graphs and analysis questions was ridiculous!

    I'll be sure to add the grade boundaries to the OP once AQA release them, I don't think we'd be able to guess them :dontknow:

    What was the specific essay question? Just on membranes in general?

    It started out so nice and got progressively worse. They lured me into a false sense of security. Why so many graphs? I did the Membranes Essay but looking back at it I could have written so much more for Relationships. Low grade boundaries? Please? Pretty please...?
