    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?
    genetic testing and its implications, stem cells, negative feedback, or drug trials, cloning, WBC, natural selection, or evolution, basically pretty much everything :lol:

    I hope it's genetic testing because that's really easy to score 6 marks on i forgot to mention the nitrogen and carbon cycles for B3! They could come up as well

    To kill a mockingbird, hated it. All of us read of mice and men in year 10 but our teacher made us read to kill a mocking bird from September-December...waste of time.

    So, how did everyone find the RS exams today? :holmes:
    I forgot to fill in the tiny box which said something like how many pages or booklets used and I'm scared that it might not be marked 😱😱😱

    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!
    Yeah same, I love the implications questions ahah - good luck to you too!

    A lot of people made that mistake but will that stop AQA from still going on and marking our papers?? Hopefully they do but I'm stressed.
