Hopeless! I counted my marks from the unofficial mark scheme for Unit 1 and it looks like I got a U, so I will have to get an A to even bring it up to a D (I think)! How about you?

I don't think they release the official mark scheme until at least a few months after results but if you go through the Unit 1 thread you should find an unofficial mark scheme

Im ****ting bricks. Things which pisses me off is the markscheme changes everytime, so one year one answer would be suitable but then the year after it says ignore.

Anyone got any ideas of whats going to be included?
I done a quick overview on the last exam so theres a possibility its NOT going to include:
Amino Acid Structure, Collagen Structure + Hb Structure
Enzymes, Inhibitors
Phagocytes, secondary defence, non specific
Process of phagocytosis - destroying pathogens
TB (Infective agent), transmission and factors increasing chance of receiving
Simpsons Index of Diversity
Species Evennes/Richness definitions
Diagram of DNA with Hydrogen bonds, structural difference between DNA + RNA
Semi-Conservative replication
Precautions of centrifugation
Biodiversity definition + conservation reasons
EIA criteria
Diseases and genetic variation
Process of selective breeding
Classifications (fill in gaps)
Phylogeny defintion

Just a really rough overview of that paper which I jotted down.

A triglyceride has a glycerol bonded by ester bonds to 3 fatty acid chains. A Phospholipid has a glycerol molecule bonded with a phosphate group and 2 fatty acid chains.

No Problem

The term lipid is extremely vague in the OCR book, they are mentioning a triglyceride.

WE WILL PASS THIS EXAM :youbetcha:

No matter how you feel right now, trust in yourself that you can do it, and you will do it.
Just keep studying, because then, even if you end up with something lower than what you had expected to get, at least you shall know that you put in the effort and tried your best.
Failing to prepare is preparing to fail, so prepare, and tomorrow you shall pass with flying colours

Also, watching these videos helped me in my revision:

Try watching a couple before you sleep tonight to sort of wrap everything up.

All the best with the exam tomorrow!

- The tar in cigarette smoke contains carcinogenic compounds
- These enter your body and can't be removed due to the cillia being paralysed.
- The carcinogens thus enter your lungs
- It then enters the nucleus of the epithelial cells
- Interferes with the genetic machinery of the cells and causes mutations
- This leads to uncontrolled cell division
- A tumour forms
- This leads to cancer

I also remember cigarette smoke also contains benzopyrene.
And that the tumour doesnt have a programmed cell death.
