Whilst doing the exam, I was so confident it was eutrophication but now looking back, I think it was bioaccumulation but do you think I can still get 6 marks if I talked about eutrophication?

Idk, but bioaccumulation was the main thing that is caused by insecticides. Insecticides kill everything that's irrelevant to the farmer, I don't see how algae could end up in farms?

Fertilisers cause eutrophication in rivers. Idk maybe if you mentioned food chains getting distorted by insecticides you might get 1 or 2 marks ..

You see the dNA sequence; it was
ECBDA wasn't it?

That is the easiest bloody way to get 4 marks, not to mention the last tick box page. That's easy 9 marks

That was a pretty easy question, you basically had to talk about how when she tried to get back to the surface then air bubbles would form in her blood and then use the fizzy drink extract to back it up and you had to talk about pressure too.
