    Anyone find it harder than the old papers? Do you think the grade boundaries will get lower?

    It was surprisingly easy. Nothing about ADH came up.. Will probably be higher grade boundaries.

    Was that the 6 marker? I spoke about how one baby could be a female and the others are males (because of the SRY gene) - which I really hope is correct

    I think the grade boundaries will be higher (unfortunately) as the test was easier than last year's I think but who knows, I hope they're lower .

    I found it similar level to the other exams. Just happy that things that I revised for actually came up.

    I found it alright. Personally I found that past paper I did when revising were easier so I'm hoping that the grade boundaries will either stay the same or go down

    that was the complete opposite for me! the only thing that I didn't revise was the nitrogen cycle AND THERE WAS A 6 MARKER!I'm very surprised that there was no question on fighting off diseases with antibodies and that or about variation and evolution.

    I didnt find it too bad but the first 6 mark was a bit annoying. Lotssss of people got 87.5% increase for that disease increase question, I got 700%, anyone else? Also , that the way genes affect the drugs question where it says something about enzymes, i wrote something about how genes code for proteins and enzymes are proteins and some more stuff

    I got 800% but missed that it said how much did it increase so 700% would be right. Hopefully i get a mark for working out seeing as it was a 2 mark question I think.
