    What did people put for the question where it asked why you had to use hot water for the sting?
    I said it would denature the protein at high temperatures so the poison would not be as effective

    I suggested that the pain is caused by enzymes and that the hot water denatures the enzyme but idk if it's right

    Yes! Phew I was worried that I had missed something on enzymes but then it said 'the hotter the better'

    Why a pain? I quite liked the format of this exam since I'm quite good at maths. I'm taking further maths this year and so this format in Biology was perfect for me haha
    I suppose I wouldn't be happy if I wasn't as good at maths though :/

    I had no idea so i put that if the poison consisted of enzymes ( a type of protein) it would denature the active site meaning the poison would be able to be harmful in the intended way

    I said something along the lines that the proteins(from the stings) will become denatured at such a high temperature which will mean that the poison will not cause further damage

    The blood goes down to the feet without warming them up and since the body doesn't have to keep the feet warm is conserves heat energy to the main parts of the body e.g organs and as the blood from the blood vessels returns to the hard it gets warmed up, so the body doesn't get cooled down by the cold blood.
    Not sure if this is right, it seems awfully long winded for a 1 or 2 marker
    Oh ok I wrote something like that too,is it correct to mention that the warm blood entering hate flippers warms up the coldly blood leaving the flippers?
    Dw mine seemed very long as well!

    yea I think what you are saying is that the warm blood coming down to the foot warms up the blood coming back. That's correct
    I don't think I explicitly said that in my long answer though whoops

    I kinda wonder if the next exam will be more knowledge based. I know much less knowledge from B4,5 and 6.

    I said they weren't because the egg cell is empty and the DNA is put inside from the other organism so that it can be placed into the surrogate mother probably completely wrong though be I didn't understand that question
