    I'm sorry, I have no idea. I do not know biology. :^) it's the one I'll drop, I hope.

    Cites is as you said is the convention in the trade of endangered species - basically a treaty in which countries work together to protect endangered species and if you wish to transport said species in or out of a country you have to get special permits this is anything from live animals to stuffed dead animals.

    Hi,
    Sat the exam today after very little revision, but I thought that the questions were very vague and required very specific answers.
    Found the whole question on translocation utterly ridiculous as the points in the table were so vague and the questions were worded so badly.
    I HATE the multiple choice as I like to explain all my answers, I've made so many silly mistakes on those questions just because I cannot explain or evaluate my points.
    All in all, far to much content as a course (and as a stand alone AS!!) with an exam that tests unrealistic and specific knowledge with poor questions.

    Such a shame.

    I would say the exam had some easy questions. But I thought that was expected as this is the breadth paper. However there were some weird questions there as well.

    i put that collagen is thick and insoluble therefore the O2 would not be able to diffuse out of it, but that the capillary wall is perforated allowing small molecules such as O2 to move out under high hydrostatic pressures - is that wrong?
    i dont think so seems good

    The questions for this one were fine, I think, only the specimens and practice papers were bad. Obviously, there's no official mark scheme, but these questions were pretty nice and specifc, with clear answers required and they jogged your mind well.

    I had neither the revision guide or the Pearson textbook so I relied on the spec
    What did your school give you?
    Did they print the spec off for you at least?

    I have to agree the questions weren't worded as well as they could have been but that's expected if they've got newer examiners for the new spec if the other ones are doing the resit papers still
