    This paper is almost identical to the IAL Jan 2014 paper and the boundary was 62 for an A* and 57 for an A
    Umm, it was hardly identical but knowing edexcel the grade boundaries will be about that anyway

    I think the data questions were a lot harder in this year's paper than the IAL paper but the synoptic questions were on the same topics so I think the grade boundaries are gonna be a bit lower

    Yeh I put cytoplasm too but the cytoplasm is related to protein synthesis as it contains ribosomes floating about.

    Overall I thought it was a pretty nice paper, especially since I did the unit 2 resit.

    I did trophic level 3 divided by trophic level 2, after I subtracted total energy in from energy out.

    got 8.75%
    I did it using the total biomass first, getting around 3%
    Then did it using the biomass after waste was taken into account, which was 700, which gave 8.75%
    Does anyone know which one is correct

    That makes sense. I was wondering which to use but did the former.

    Since the question was worded quite ambiguously maybe they'll award for both? It didn't state whether it was the energy which the 2nd tropic level had in total, or just that which it passed on.
