    Yeah what was that question about magnesium?? and the one about accurate readings of PH that's chemistry! I thought it was harder than the past papers and the diffusion question was bad I couldn't think of very many examples

    I found the exam OK... so lucky that the 6 markers were on Speciation and Diffusion!

    But the roots question, and how putting air in the ions helps the roots to not die? Wtf lol...

    i found the Biology Unit relatively "easy" but B3 was just so much more harder, i think in a sense i was lucky since everything i revised in B2 came up but With B3 it was just totally blown out of proportion
    Hope everyone did good though

    I thought the diffusion was hard, I couldn't remember very many points and I agree the plant roots/ions was mad, also sad that no cells came up :'(

    For the magnesium question I just wrote about chlorophyll, and how it's essential in the process of photosynthesis to make glucose with is used for healthy growth in the plant.

    I have a feeling that the grade boundaries will be lowered.

    What did you guys write for the one where you had to pick from Meiosis or Mitosis?
    Everyone in my year has been debating about that all day haha

    The one about the fertilized egg dividing into an embryo was mitosis.
    Meiosis is for gametes.

    I actually found most of it easy enough apart from the question about the plant minerals, i had to half guess at that. I think the question about mitosis or meiosis is mitosis because the gametes had already fused.
