    I find Unit 1 harder than unit 2 to be honest!

    Thread for anyone doing AS Biology IAL! Unit 1: 21st of May/ Unit 2: 1st of June

    How are you guys feeling about Unit 1? Guesses on what experiment may turn up?

    Don't have a good feeling about Unit 1, could be tough(I hope not).

    I think the experiment maybe about the initial rate of reaction..

    What would be my overall UMS marks (out of 300) if I end up with 65/80 in both unit 1 & 2 and 30/40 in unit 3?

    Oh no I hate initial rate of reaction! xD I really hope that unit 1 is easy....and that we have low grade boundaries (I'm a wishful thinker)

    I'm not too sure about the UMS marks you would get since I don't know how they are calculated, however, I did find this UMS converter on the pearson website:

    http://qualifications.pearson.com/en...nd-grades.html

    scroll all the way down until you come across 'edexcel mark converter'

    You would definitely come out with a high UMS score if you achieve those marks!

    Yeah if you've solved a lot of past papers & are able to understand every single thing in this Unit (specially DNA & CVD chapters) then you're pretty much likely to get an A ( Hope that exam won't be tough )

    i think it means that if glucose was in the solution, then it will cause osmosis to occur past the membrane... i think ur talking bout the amobea question in past papers right?
