    On the picture of the mitochondria what was it pointing to the matrix or the cristae, it was a pretty close call but I said cristae.
    Was unclear but I think it was Cristae too.

    damn, unlucky, how comes?
    Because in our school peolpe who are continuing to A level dont get to sit AS. so they just make a crappy paper with really high grade boundaries and give a prediction on that. And people said grammar schools were good :/

    How did you calculate rate?
    Are you talking about the graph or the table?
    For the graph that you were given you had to:
    Draw a tangent, calculate gradient of tangent?
    For the table that you had to fill:
    You took the concentration and divide it by 60. It wanted the rate of reaction in the units gdm^-3min^-1 so you had to get the rate per minute and you were told the time was an hour.

    And for every value calculated did you get something x10^3?

    no you shouldn't be, but your grade is gonna be mainly what your teachers thinks you'll get rather than based on these papers since you didn't do the AQA oneso better be buddying up to your teacher

    Same here, how many questions did you miss out? I only missed out two 1-markers but the whole of Q9 and last part of Q8 were rushed so I probably didn't get many marks in them :/

    I managed to finish a bit early with detailed response but a lot of people from my school didn't get to question 9 properly? I just want to ask for my friends, did you guys find the time constraints to be a bit 'tight'.

    I missed the 4 mark graph, planned to do it at the end but was running out of time so rushed the comprehension question without thinking properly. I basically panicked for some reason and timing made it worse.

    magnification= 2125
    Magnification was 21250? I think your missing a 0. The length was 8.5 cm = 85 mm = 85,000 micrometers.
    85000/4.

    not really, had a lot of time left, so did a few in the hall from what i could see. Most people i asked didn't answer Q9 properly cause they didn't know what to write rather than being out of time

    You could just do 85 mm =0.085m 4micrometers = 4*10^-6m 0.85/4*10^-6 = 21250
