    Hello everyone!
    How did you find the Biology exam? I actually found a few issues with it... one being that it was more of an English & Maths paper rather than Biology... which is odd and annoying!! I also found that the example graph for Person 1 for the Heart Rate question wrong... in the forumla example given it said ____ x 77, however when I checked the graph plotted, it was way over 80, and no where near 77... I have asked some friends and they believe the same too!
    Did you find this too?
    I hope it all went well for you, and didn't find it too problematic!!

    Hello ! My instincts first discovered that too, however as you look closely at the graph you notice that the rate is still increasing even when Excerise is stopped ! There was a vertical line to show when they stopped excersising and the rate was increasing after this up to 82/88
    Hope this helped ! How did u find the exam overall ?

    I messed up the magnification question, I put 40x when it was 400x. I didn't understand how many copies were needed for polydactyly and cystic fibrosis and the reason why the pH changed for both investigations. Apart from those it was decent, it was a weird paper though!

    I screwed up the magnification,ratio and I wrote a lot for the 5mark question on excersise but im not sure if i was write with that hopefully i got atleast 3/5 on that.

    Overall I think I got an A but I always do better than I think

    Also mark scheme will be 40-46 for an A* im guessing

    I'm sure that was right for the fibrosis and polydactyly question as polydactyly is dominant so you only need 1 and cystic fibrosis is recessive so you need 2.

    I put one reason as major geological disasters destroy them like asteroids or earthquakes but I didn't know a second point, so I said about soft bodied organisms that decay completely so we don't have any fossils of them even though it was about birds not slugs or whatever
