    i definitely agree with the physics part, i didn't even get what it was asking to be honest. i didn't think the biology part was too bad.

    It was really hard, half of the stuff on it I don't even think our teacher taught us it.

    For the question about how the brain and nervous system inrease heart rate, I think these may be the marking points:
    • Increased frequency of impulses travel in
    • Sympathetic nerve
    • From cardiovascular centre
    • In brain/medulla
    • To S-A node
    • In right atrium of the heart

    The grade boundaries have to be low, the amount of people who have found it so hard

    What did people get for the rock-climber question?

    Was it something like 750 Newtons times 0.6 metres = 450?

    The first question on the biology part was especially hard I thought, I didn't think it made sense because germinating peas don't take in oxygen but take in C02 and have a low RQ. I still wrote about oxygen though.
    As for that last question, who ever designed the paper this year is satan, it was one of the hardest if not thee hardest paper they had in years. The only past paper that even comes close is one of the 2011 ones I think.
    Hopefully they'll lower the grade boundaries quite a bit because it does seem really unfair, the biology required lots of knowledge about one small part of the course and the physics wanted extraneous math to be done and that last awful question tho

    i got completely confused with that question, it mentioned weight with newtons - didn't get that

    It was something about like the amount of energy the climber needed to move up, me and a few others put like 750N x 0.6m / 1 giving it 450w

    The question i didn't understand at all was the one asking about the efficiency and the production of heat. The efficiency was 85% so I calculated what he needed to have 100% which turned out to be like sixty something point something I can't remember

    The next part I just put in what the 15% I measured out from the last question was

    As for that last part I wrote about energy dissipating through heat, sound and other muscle activity.
    That question sucked so much
