# AQA AS Biology 7401/1 and 7401/2 Exam - 26th May and 7th June 2016 watch

1. The protein receptor question screwed me up was did others write

How did you get that? I swear you measure both the sizes and then divide the bigger by the smaller. I got 1.7x. Plus by looking at it it didnt look 3x bigger

It was a circle, and said how times bigger is the area of D (or something) than B. So you do ( can't remember the values exactly)
Pi x r^2 as a ratio between the 2 (D and B)

Pi x 1.1^2 : pi x 0.65^2
3.8 : 1.33
Get the right had side down to one
2.9 :1
So it was X2.9 bigger
I hope so anyway lol

I think you did what I did and measured the radius instead of the diameter
It wouldn't matter whether you measured the radius or diameter because you would still get the same ratio. I also got 1.7x ☺️

Nah I done diameter. But either way whether you do diameter or radius you should get the same answer. But it was how many times bigger e.g 10 is 2x bigger than 5. So is 20 2x bigger than 10

Nah blud everything i revised never popped up
the vast majority of topics came up
6. AQA took the piss with this, they defos want us to fail

Do you remember the measurement of D and B?

What was the haemoglobin one? For water potential I put sea water contains salt - Lower water potential - water moves into worm down water potential grad via osmosis , worm swells , may burst , death
Wouldn't water move out of the worm? Because water moves from higher water potential in worm to lower water potential in sea water?

Damnn. You guys went in doing the area of a circle and everything. But I remember quit well D wasnt 3x bigger than the size of B
11. 2.9x was the correct answer, although im sure they'll accept answers in the range of 2.5-3.5ish
12. we need an unofficial markscheme cos moretime everyone's lost the plot

None of meisos came up. WTFF
14. What did everyone out for the phosphate and embryo question??
15. (Original post by Virolite)
the vast majority of topics came up
- Transcription
- Translation
- Mitosis and Meiosis only barely
- Taxonomy
- Insects
- Fish
- Heart

But nah - focus the papers on enzymes
16. Hate the fact that nearly nothing on human biology came up except for the weird ones like haemoglobin and emphysema. Was looking for some good ol' factual recall about heart and lungs 😭
Oh well

i said hydrolysis of phosphate releases energy etc which is used in reactions but im dumb so that's most likely wrong

Do you kno how to access the memory of a casio calc?

Wait I rememeber. I had 2.3/1.3 which gave 1.76

I put that too but wasn't sure! And something about phosphate changing the shape of enzymes so other substrates fit? But tbh I was just trying to think of anything I knew about phosphate so not sure if that's right
