    There's usually a question on sampling, that's a pretty safe bet.

    Yeah that's true probably something to do with kite diagrams I'm guessing?

    Anyway good luck to everyone taking this exam, hopefully it won't be a paper full of graphs this time 😂📈📉📊

    Although this paper is hard guys, the boundaries are quite low- for an A*, its around 50 marks (it was 53 last year apparently). That means you could easily lose over 20 marks and still get an a*. Section D is also a good place to pick up marks as well

    Its like around (less than 55 probably), but its out of 85 as well (cause of section D)

    Oh true, is there any specific way of doing section D or just analysing correlation etc with reference to bio

    There isnt a set out way, but yeah, essentially youre analysing data. Try to be critical of the data and think of the problems and what it does tell you, because that sort of question makes up some of the marks in that section

    As expected, the test was quite difficult- a lot of 'suggest'/application questions which made things harder. The six markers were quite straight forward, buy questions like the one about the traps and how they become turgid threw me off a little. Hopefully, physics and chemistry are slightly better

    Something about the antibiotics neutralising the lactic acid made when lactose is split by lactobacsillus, and therefore spoiling the yoghurt.
