    I will be doing a quantitive practical. I was only told that it's about "the effect of intracellular ion concentrations on model plant cells". I am really freaked out as I dont know wt to do and how to prepare. There are no past paper for referencing and I wonder if anyone can give me some help on this?

    What are example questions for task like this? I couldnt find any specimen paper with such criteria

    I have read some really oold thread which says that past questions are something like "effect of temperature on cell surface membrane". I will not be doing the same practical but i still want to know the pattern and style of questions for reference....

    Can someone please help?

    The quantitative (minus the evaluative part) is only 10 marks and all you really have to do is carry out the experiment safely without breaking anything, get an alright pattern of results (sometimes you don't even need to do that) draw a graph, maybe calculate an average. Trick here is not to over think it.

    If you're doing the evaluative as well, then you'll need to understand the reason you get the results that you do as you often have to describe and explain your results and say why they may not be accurate or why there might be anomalies, suggest how to improve the experiment etc.

    Hope that helps

    Do exactly as the person above said, and good luck!

    It's not very difficult- it's weeks ago so i dont really remember all the question- but they are quite straightforward- there was a question on water potential i think
