    Yeah I agree! It's horrible having invigilators watching over you. I hate when they lean over you too it's like ..... go away please .....

    Umm probably the nitrogen cycle because I mean I understand it but not as well as everything else You?

    I just sit there and give them black looks because in my school they walk past and start moving stuff on your desk and it gets really annoying hahaha And i was just about to say the nitrogen cycle as well and maybe homeostasis but overall i'm quite confident for it

    Ahaha lol. Mine don't move stuff on your desk apart from check your ID if we have it on the desk and like look at you lol. They just look over your work and it's so annoying. Anyway, if one moved stuff on my desk, I'd just move it back xD

    What about homeostasis don't you understand because I'm pretty confident on that? Also what do you think the 6MQ's will be?

    well I've just went over it and think i'm okay with it actually but thanks it will probably be a 6 mark question on genetic testing as there almost always is, maybe the circulatory system for b2 then perhaps natural selection/ evolution for b3 im thinking. what other subjects did you take?

    hmm I'm thinking it'll be genetic testing/screening too for b1, b2 possibly placebos and drug trials maybe? or even homeostasis maybe? and then b3 i was kinda thinking the nitrogen cycle but i really hope not. maybe carbon cycle?

    i also take geog, spanish, ict, media studies and then obviously core subj's science, english and maths you?

    yeah they could be that as well i just hate it when they word the 6 mark questions so you dont know what to write and what to leave out. i do triple science, psychology, history and ICT and of course English lang/lit and maths

    Haha what time does your school finish? Mine finishes at 2:50 so it would be pretty pointless staying in school for 20 mins

    Oh dear, nightmare! My friend faints at blood and she said to me that she had to take a 5 min breather on the question about the lumen and the area of it question because she said she felt like she was gonna faint. We had a pause at the start of our exam (way to cure the nerves, right?!) because some Foundation students required a Higher paper.

    Oh I'm not squeamish either and I've never fainted so I don't expect it at all either :cool:

    Haha, no they had the papers out but like some students had the wrong papers I mean! Fair enough, I just go on my phone and use my VPN app to access stuff like Facebook and Twitter to calm myself down!
