I believe it was the product of when protein is broken down by protease, so it would be amino acids.

It gave a hint in the question if i remember right, I think it said magnesium is found in the chloroplasts, so I said magnesium is needed to produce chlorophyll for photosynthesis, something along them lines... 18 exams, what? I only have about 8 to go.

I reckon the grade boundaries would go down from last year as the previous papers were easier. I reckon I'll get an a/a*

I thought that b2 was harder than b3- the first b3 6 mark question was basically a geography question (good news for those of us who do geography!)
but there were no questions on kidneys or dialysis and about 1 on the heart- i learnt all the chambers and valves for nothing.
b3 was definitely easier than last year.
except for that one question on the number of stomata on the upper side of the leaf- 1 mark and i could not get my head round it :/

Ahh don't worry about it, you've probably done pretty good on the rest of the questions. My chemistry exam is on thursday, I'm worried about that one the most.

Does anyone remember the question about the shrimps mating, and the reasons why the scientists might be wrong about them being a different species because they didn't want to mate? I think I put really stupid answers, I said, maybe they are a different gender, and maybe it's not the mating season for shrimps, lol.

I did both papers, i found them slightly tricky on some questions, although i made sure to answer everything, some of my attempts were uncertain attempts however some such as the deforestation question on b3, the osmosis question on b3, the speciation question on b2 i should have got some points correct. Does anyone think the grade boundaries will be high this year? most say they found it easy (people i know anyway)

the Magnesium ion question should never have been put in! I am a teacher and this question or anything about Mg is not in the syllabus anymore!, with enough support from teachers we need to appeal and lower the grade boundary by a mark or 2!
