One of the topics we need to know for the EMPA is 'survival and response' which seems really vague to me as it could include a lot of unit 5 (response to stimuli, coordination, muscle contraction, homeostasis and feedback mechanisms) what is everyone revising as this seems too much? :s

I thought that only meant to focus on response to stimuli.....taxis, kenesis, tropisms

I'm currently having the same debate about this. After mis-reading the topics all week and lulling myself into a false sense of security. Doing the EMPA task 3 tomorrow and only now realised my mistake. If you look up 'Survival and Response' on the AQA spec it suggests it just covers the idea that organisms respond to stimuli, along with kinesis, taxes, tropisms and relax arc (http://www.aqa.org.uk/subjects/scien...content/unit-5) before moving onto the control of heart rate. If you want to be mega-safe I'd look at the heart rate too (it'll only reduce revision later on!) but I think it only covers a few points.

Good luck!
