    How did everyone find the exam?

    I think the knowledge questions went well for me but the questions about interpreting graphs etc did not go as well.

    Oh was that the one where you had to like add a line to the graph? Co2 or whatever? - if so, what did you put?

    Yeah it was- I put the line going down steeper and then leveling off at like 90 light intensity after 9 days with the theory that if the co2 increased by x10 it would reduce the amount of days needed by half but the light intensity would not affect it as much (as in it would level off later) as the co2 would not be a limiting factor anymore.

    Sorry if this doesn't make much sense but tbh I didnt really know what i was talking about either

    Thanks haha- I'm so worried about this science GCSE because due to my physics teacher being off until January and then me having 2 emergency surgeries I haven't even learnt the whole course content- I was so happy that no questions came up about circuit symbols! I think I'm going to struggle with Unit 2 a lot more tbh :/

    What did you put for the 6 marker?
    Said about how tissues are arranged into organs, organs into organ systems

    Plants:
    Organs: Stem, Roots and Leaves
    Tissues: Mesophyll- Photosynthesis, Xylem- Water, Phloem- Minerals and Epidermal- Covers Plants

    Animals:
    Used digestive system example:
    Tissues: Epithial- Covers inside and outside of stomach, Glandular- secretes digestive juices, Muscular- Churns food and contracts

    Organs: Stomach- digest food, Small Intestine- Absorbs solouble molecules, Liver-produces bile, Large intestine- absorbs water

    Probably wrote way too much what did you write?

    Mentioned a couple of the tissues for plants and animals and explained them, but I didn't write near as much as you did lol. Didn't write anything about organs though. Hopefully i'll get a few marks

    I had to ask for extra room and considering it was on the second page the invigilators didn't look too impressed haha- and also considering a girl had just had a breakdown and needed to be escorted out the exam hall right in front of me :/


    You'll definitely get a couple of marks
