    For the cellulose question I wrote about it being B glucose. Molecules joined in condensation reactions and chains of molecules being joined by hydrogen bonds. Also wrote about molecules being layed down in a cross cross manner embedded in hemicelluloses and pectin or pectate - couldnt remember haha.

    For the protein comparison I said glubular is 3d and used in enzymes, fibrous is flat and forms a mesh for example in hair.

    Do these sound right??


    firstly b-glucose molecules in cellulose are joined by glycosidic bonds but you might get hydrogen. for the fibrous and globular you can look at the june 2011 paper it has the exact same question on it. the marking points were like insoluble soluble, long and straight opposed to spherical ect.

    I have no clue tbh, but I did write 3 which seems wrong lol
    i think i got like 0.7 something or around that

    Guys, I wrote that Fibrous can be coiled/rope like structure while Globular is spherical/round? is that correct?

    I said there was some sort of obstruction, such as a stone or rock, in that depth of peat, so no recording for pollen could be taken.
    i said something along the lines of inaccurate measuring as the graph started at zero so if there was none that would have been indicated

    yea it has the idea of different shapes so probe what else did you say

    Talked about hard outer coating prvents destruction from acidic ph, also acidic ph and anaerobic conditions prevents microbial growth and aerobic respiration
    i said it more simply like the ph was too low and unsuitable for bacteria to live in, therefore there is nothing to decay the pollen

    do you guys think id get a mark for saying fibrous proteins are stronger than globular proteins?

    probably not cause it was differences in structure that was being focused on

    Said fibrous proteins are insoluble while globular is soluble and that fibrous chains are linear. Pretty certain those are right

    Omg, are you sure that was the case? I'm sure sea levels did rise after the volcanic eruption but now that you mention in, the pollen graph may have been dodgy :// fml. I think altogether, them questions were around 8 marks?
    sea level did rise just after the eruption but yea pollen decreased cos the deeper it went the further back in time it went so you had to read from right to left :/

    For the peat pollen question, I wrote about global warming and how you can use the pollen from the peat bogs to determine the conditions of the planet from the past....any marks?? I see people wrote some other stuff on here :/

    I wrote fibrous are coiled like a rope (keratin is) so idk if they'll let me off...?

    Is anybody having trouble downloading the IAL bio unit 4 january 2014 mark scheme? I want an idea of how i did but it doesnt come up.
