    what did you put for the question on how the scientists could make a conclusion without using the graph about the radiation leak from a nuclear power station

    I said that they could analyse the DNA of butterflies close and further away from the Nuclear plant

    I put something about comparing the radiation levels to the mutations level to see if there was an correlation

    harder than a lot of past papers but not too bad. Messed up on percentage increase and on 2dp but other than that it was okay. Reckon i'll get mid 40's. Hopefully enough for an A* if not a high A.

    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[/QUO
    yup i wrote about the c baby being made from another sperm and egg
    not sure
    I wrote about it being a different sperm and egg and how that makes them genetically different because of the various different combinations of alleles that come from the parents

    yeah i put to measure the intensity of the radiation at various distances from the station and to investigate on other insects like flies and bees

    I wrote 700 % but everyone else did 800 :/ I thing I overcomplicated it by taking the value of February away from April to get the increase

    For some reason I talked about excretion from animals
    I wrote about excretion too and the death and decomposition of plants and animals forming ammonia which is converted into nitrates by nitrifying bacteria :confused:

    I was really confident for this but just did okay. Made a few mistake. I'm going to make up for itmin the B4b5b6 and B7 exam.

    For the question who do you agree with? Was it the boy because of genes passed to off spring.

    no don't worry you are right. it says percentage 'increase' so its just the increased amount's percentage that we need. so it's:
    160-20=140
    140/20=7
    7*100=700%
    WE ARE RIGHT NOTHING ELSE IS RIGHT FOR THIS QUESTION

    I couldn't find anyone else that put 700% and I just thought I was being stupid it's quite reassuring that you got the same!

    I put boy. One of my friends put the girl but I see it as if you got cancer on your arm due to exposure to ionising radiation, your child isn't going to get it too so for it to be passed on the damage would have to be done to the sex cells

    What on earth was that genes question about drugs in the body? Enzymes? Conversion? It stumped me completely

    For the concerns about testing the embryo I put
    It could cause a miscarriage
    It could harm the baby in the womb for example an infection
    You would have to decide if you should abort it if it had a disease

    Should I get 3 marks for this or is the miscarriage the same as harming the baby in the womb
    Also is the abortion one even a concern?

    I talked about how genes code functional proteins (so enzymes), and the amount of enzymes they code would differ from person to person, reducing or increasing the impact of a drug on someone.

    I got this too. Percentage increase by 100% is doubling it, so by that logic, it has to be 700%.

    Not entirely sure, but I mentioned the first and the third points, but also said that if there was a false positive, the fetus would be terminated despite not actually having a disorder.
