I found that this exam didn't have much biology in it, instead there was quite a lot of data analyzing. Overall it went 'ok'.

I did so so bad
I think i did way better in my mocks than this like i cannot analyse data for the life of me and pretty much half the paper was about drugs -my worst subject
i wanted more defence against disease and i really wanted homeostasis for the six marker!! I messed the plant hormones one up and don't even get me started on the percentage one!!

yeah I am not happy Biology is usually my strongest subject :\

So many graph questions though? Was looking to find more questions on homeostasis and decay and the carbon cycle

40 because 37 is the optimum temperature for bacteria to reproduce (food tech student here )
