I put Mitosis but I'm not sure if that's right!
It mentioned something about how the embryo grows, and growing is Mitosis. I could be wrong though

Mitosis

Did anyone else miss out the last questions, it seems to be a pretty common mistake from what some of my friends were saying

It was meiosis... did you get the question about the number of cells beneath it though?

It wasn't terrible but the whole fish section at the start of B3 were complete alien stuff to me :bl::borat:

I found it weird!
The questions were too vague, and only one case study!

I put Meiosis to!
I did The Alps for the fold mountains
But the questions were just so open and vague, like the 'describe a flood', i'm not used to questions like that
erghhhh

Mitosis and 8
I thought B3 was better than B2. B2 was ok-ish - I found the question on the magnesium ions and nitrogen quite tricky.

The stuff about keeping roots alive and magnesium ions are not in the specification so I don't think they should have come up tbh. Anyone know the actual answers?? Oh and also about why scientists might be wrong about the shrimp not breeding?!

extreme environments and coasts

oh my god for the 6 mark extreme env one i said about diguettes in Sahel but just made up that they drilled holes in the ice to catch fish in the arctic :clap2:

The altitude question was terrible! And also why the UK's climate could change...I couldn't remember anything!

i put:

similar markings coincidental
could be same gender

In Addition Biology
Half marks is usually a B, 45 is usually an A*
But from the questions that were on today and the general layout of the paper I would expect maximum of 40 for an A* and 27 for a B
