    What was the answer to the cystic fibrosis infertility question?
    I don't know the exact answer but I wrote that he will get tired quickly and he has a short life span. I've checked the question and it should be that the tube the sperm travels through isn't fully developed...

    The mucus blocks the tube the sperm go through, i asked my teacher but i had no clue in the exam because we was not taught it and was not in cgp.
    I think that question shouldn't even be there. 99.9% got it wrong!

    Anyone have any chem predictions ? No point worrying about bio now its over there's nothing we can do. Let's not sacrifice our chem grade by stressing over what we have already got. Just move on and hold on to the hope the grade boundary's aren't as high as 53

    I predict reactions of acids it hasn't come up in ages.
    I agree with you

    I think the paper was so easy, i'm so happy! but i got stuck on th emutualism because i didnt thoroughly revise that. i put
    Oxpecker removes dead skin cells from other animals
    Cleaner fish remove dead skin cells from bigger fish e.g shark
    Chemosynthetic bacteria makes sulphide compounds for tube worms

    How many marks would this get me???
    Chemosynethic bacteria doesn't produce sulphide, hydrogen sulphide is produced by the hydrothermal vents, which the bacteria will break down with the carbon dioxide or water in the hydrothermal vents creating sugars and sulphur, for the tube worms/Pompeii worms/organisms living in the hydrothermal vents to use as food, there's barely that much detail in regards to your answers, you're stating the examples, but not why it's a mutualistic relationship, as in how they both benefit each other, as that is what a mutualistic relationship is (mutualism) so taking that into consideration, I would say you're looking at 2 or 3 marks at best.

    That great, i was thinking about three marks, its the only question i struggled on and cystic fibrosis infertile one so losing 5 marks out of 60 is alright

    Omg same, but you found biology a breeze right? if so, the same amount and type of revision you did for biology i would just say do that again and try to add more,
    Most of it is purely testing your memory so go over and over stuff that you even already know, to prevent mental block in the exam

    But its a dominant allele which causes the disease so even HH would cause the disease so its 75%

    Hey,
    okay so I'm in year ten and this year I'll be doing Unit one, two and three of both biology and physics and chemistry will be left for year eleven! I was feeling pretty confident before reading this thread but I've realised that I may have made some really silly mistakes! First thing I did was check the six marks and was relieved and then the fertility and cystic fibrosis question got me and I can only remember writing something about mucus and also the man possibly having a low sperm count just to be safe as I had no clue. The other question I was unsure of was the second percentage as I got 8% which I've found to be incorrect! Also does anyone know whether labelling it as dendron would count rather than dendrite? Okay sorry for waffling I'm just feeling panicky about it after reading this thread!

    Yeah I wrote about eutrophication and how it causes the death of aquatic animals! Basically went through the stages of it!
