    Ridiculously easy. Once you master the art bs'ing you can get A's in RS and english. The mark schemes literally say 'they may say this but give marks if you think it's right.' WJEC also ask the same questions almost every year.

    Exactly lmao. I done rs too and it was really easy.

    Darwin vs. Lamark? I haven't revised that at all! Though now you say it... does seem quite likely.

    I think there might be a question on vaccines, but that should be alright. Maybe something about kidneys and negative feedback?

    Any ideas for B1 6 markers?
    Yeah I'm thinking memory cells, homeostasis, adaptation, the heart and blood vessels, and a stem cell 6MQ for B1 (maybe on therapeutic cloning?)

    If not stem cells, then probably implications of genetic testing - it seems to come up EVERY year (3 past papers since 2012 when the new spec came out)

    I hope implications do come up, I've looked at those quite a bit. I'm not sure if Huntingdon's disease and cystic fibrosis will come up much this year though, they've been on the papers quite often too.

    Good luck for tomorrow!

    Damn! How many GCSEs are you taking in total? I only have 24 and I'm not doing an exam for one of my subject either. I took art so I've already finished it.

    what do you think the 6 marks are gonna be?

    I think there might be one on B1 about genetic testing and the complications as that always comes up or stem cells as that would fit a 6 marker

    B2 i think could be about homeostasis as that hasn't come up in the exam in ages or it could be about infection or the drugs.

    I think B3 could possibly be about evolution (or Darwin or Lamar) or differences between natural selection and selective breeding.

    What do you think?

    Aww good luck! I'm sure you'll smash them! A few of my friends are doing Edexcel French actually. I do Edexcel Spanish though and they're on Friday! D-: I found a thread for OCR 21c Biology if you have a look
