The grade bounderies are gonna be high cuz it was an easy paper

it was okay I'm just really scared because i love biology and i wanted to take it for a level but i had no clue what the autotrophs and heterotrophs were at the time which was like 3 marks. I revised the harder stuff like nitrogen and carbon cycle and diabetes and kind of forgot about the easier stuff

I'm just like you, i really wanted an A in my core and i want to do biology at a level, I messed up in the last question. I read the question wrong and then I wrote about antibiotics NOT antiseptics so im pretty much rubbish at exam technique

Im really good at remembering stuff but im really bad at exam technique

I wrote about antiseptics but I wrote about how they kill bacteria before it enters the body so antibiotics are not needed I am still not sure if thats correct. Thats the same with me Im so bad at applying my knowledge but i can remember things the night before quite well. I still really want to do biology a level, fingers crossed for us

The biology exam went alright for me. The MRSA question and the Pollution questions were taken from past papers, so in some sense it wasn't anything new.

I have done that test, and actually found the last two questions very easy compared to question 1. Some questions just annoyed me and I also did terrible on the plant hormone as well. For MRSA, I didn't struggle at all. I am hoping for an A grade overall. If the grade boundaries are same like last year( 52 for A* and 45 for A) then I have achieved an A grade because I've counted them and got exactly 45. Hopefully it will be an A because I also want to do Biology at A-level.

Guys,
Has anyone got any unofficial answers for the b1, c1, p1 tests this year (2014 june.) Imo, the chemistry test was the easiest out of the lot. I am praying the grade boundaries are low :?
