It was alright until the antibiotics one I read it about 5 times and still didn't understand what they were talking about!

Really? I thought it was just common sense... Like you could cancel out a few of the options because, for instance, a plant doesn't release "excrement", which was one of the options.

The grade boundaries change on how people do on the exam so you can't really judge from that

They'll be like 65% for an A*, that's still pretty easy. I did a past paper recently where an A* was 54%

I was annoyed at how most of b2 didn't come up, they chose the weirdest and smallest parts to test us on smh but I thought it went quite well apart from the antibiotics question which I messed up quite badly

For the selective breeding question did you just write about about how it's controlled by humans and it takes a shorter amount of time?
