    Damn, I definitely went wrong then - I wrote about how the lowland soils had more nutrients than the upland soils. So far I'm the only one who wrote anything like that :eek:

    Was I the only one who didn't know that hormones could be denatured? That was the hardest question on the exam for me...I guessed something to do with it being denatured, but it was a total guess
    now you say it im not so sure either lol
    but the examiner was like "dumb unscientific christian catholic Jew says hormones bad- a true scientist about to rescue the earth says no" so i guessed you have to make "scientific" remarks to impress the examiner

    On the X axis I wrote years.

    I didnt write every single year. Just every single set of values. Eg. 1969-73 etc.

    Then on the Y axis I wrote number of heart attacks etc and I went up in 10s.

    What do you think?

    Okay that's kinda relieving, thanks! It wasn't that many marks anyway, so it shouldn't be too bad

    Yes, I didn't know that until the question mentioned that the growth hormone is a protein (which can denature like enzymes)

    I did this too. Took me a few minutes of staring at the page to finally figure out how to do it but this seemed like the only correct method to me.

    I took so much time trying to figure out an appropriate scale before I realised that method but midway through doing it the exam had finished

    You will get some marks for that, I'm sure. It's okay, this is just your post-exam brain stressing out

    That definitely sounds achievable, just revise as best you can - I've been the idiot who didn't bother revising for biology until TODAY, no joke - and I reckon you'll be able to get 90/120, no problem.
