Yeah, very difficult compared o the mock.

I didn't realise that the question with the falling leaves was about the carbon cycle!!! So I wrote about starch being sent down for store in tubers for next spring!!!

But then again, I didn't exactly mess up anything else, so it was OK

Anyone else get 12500 for the magnification?

i thought it was actually not that hard. probably cos id revised for five days for it. the question about the process in the mitochondria threw me the most. but i got it in the last minute.

I just didn't get that question!!!!!!
it was aerobic respiration. i changed my answer for it five times, cos it was two marks and i didnt see how just repiration was worth two marks. very nerve wracking.

Strange- i did AQA Biology Higher and had none of your questions and liked the paper! Was yours modular biology, coordinated biology or just biology?

about the bacterium in a plasmid
i got yes for that,because they were clones which meant that they were gentically identical, so if the parent bacterium could produce insuilin, then the identical offspring bacteria could also produce it.

only thing with that is, suppose there was a mutation.

I had AQA Biology. Nothing that hard really. Nothing that couldn't be worked out if I didn't already know it (like the bacteria and the plasmids).

I was amazed at how easy that exam seemed to be! Saying that, I'll probably get a crap grade..
A lot of the stuff we didn't study, but if you think about what topic it's related to, then you can just write that stuff most of the time
Going to fail physics though..

The question stated: Will all of the clones be able to produce insulin?

Because of mutations the answer is no.

Did anyone do the table like this:

Tick top left and bottom two?
