    I swear the old style a level past papers were sooo much easier then what we were given in these exams, like they actually covered loads of actual content rather then just experiments :/

    That wasn't unclear, they said IMMEDIATELY AFTER, you don't inhale IMMEDIATELY AFTER, so IMMEDIATELY AFTER its when they're empty

    I know, it's ridiculous- and the fact that these will be predicted grades going to our potential universities is annoying af, like the uni won't understand or take into account OCRs sh*tty ability to word questions properly, they'll just see the grade and judge

    For the enzymes I just said about the change in rate of reaction as temperature changes.
    For the second one I mentioned that mixed blood has lower concentration gradients and stuff like that,

    I know what you mean. I litrally flipped onto the last page, hared theinvidulator say 3 mins and I decided it was more sensible to go through the paper for mistakes than rush the percentage question and get it wrong :banghead:
