    I'm not sure. I think it was the day before last year, something like that anyway...they basically come out at the same time.

    Was a thread like this and twitter so active last year? I've seen previous IGCSE science threads and I haven't seen so many pages before. If not then maybe this is kind of a consensus that edexcel really went wrong this round..

    For the first I made reference to water molecules in the plants
    For the second I wrote that some areas may have a denser population of plants than others.

    Bare in mind that I was rushing because I found it hard and left it till the end

    Don't worry there wasn't, that started off as me thinking testosterone causes sperm production, then someone said no, it's fsh or lh...it's okay, you didn't miss a question out!!!

    Tbh I thought it was pretty fair. Sure there were lots of suggest questions but I felt they quite a few topics were covered and that lots of the past papers were much harder. Look at the jan 2015 paper if you want to see a really hard one. This is obviously just my opinion though

    Yeah, I'm genuinely worrying that I didn't lock my people in a room with mosquitoes, I just let them do their own thing - never thought THAT'd be something I worried about!!
    What is the world coming to...

    I put stuff about lying still - totally what you would do in a room of mosquitoes...
