    Hi.....I take SL Biology

    Paper 1 - Easy Peasy lemon squeezy. Finished in 10 mins....
    Paper 2 - Essay questions alright. Data base question wtf?! I didn't understand the one on caterpillars. 'Great tits'!? (btw, if you hope this reveals any info on the exam, it doesn't).

    Hmm paper one was dead easy, paper two was.....weird (if you do standard level you'll see). The essay questions were quite nice though.

    Exactly the same reaction......I didn't get the great tit question. i did no 6, though, I saw that 7 was a ------ question (just incase ppl haven't taken it) and i didn't even read it which is something I never do but I just did it!! omg....and I come out of the exam and everyone was saying how easy it was..stupid me.....

    no. 6 was ok...

    People. Let me tell you. paper one was AWESOME! I'll be dissappointed if I dont get like 80-90%. But paper 2......WTF?????
    The worst paper 2 I've ever seen. Section B was a biatch and so were the data based questions. Give me a break. I left the exam room kinda pissed after paper 2. There wasnt a single thing on transcription or translation, the things I had studied in like the greatest detail ever.

    oh come on, what are you all on about?
    that was the easiest paper 1 they could possibly have set, not a single question required any interpretation or analysis. 30 /30 for sure
    Paper 2 was prehaps unusual, but certainly not difficult.

    Hey, everyone is different. Paper 1 was easy and I'll be surprised if I don't get above 90%, but the data base question in paper 2 (the great tits one) I didn't understand at all. I'd never seen anything like it. It wasn't too bad though.

    Just because you understood it doesn't mean everyone did. The tone you wrote in was very condescending Plz appreaciate the fact that we all have different ranges of knowledge....

    Lol i looked at that part of the question and i had no idea what DNA profiling was, but as i was writing an answer down to fill up the space, i remembered what it was....quite funny as what i was writing down about had to do with taking a sample amniotic fluid
