    me too, everyone is saying XX and XY chromosomes, but I think they'll accept them both.

    I hope.
    I've always read that the 23rd pair are called the sex chromosomes, so I put that aha. I think they'll probably accept it, can't do anything about it now - just need to do better in the other exams!

    What did you guys put for the 6 mark question in B2? I wrote that there was dead ebola virus in his blood so it acted like a vaccine and memory cells were formed but now I think I'm completely wrong Maybe they just injected memory cells in the man's blood straight into the woman?
    If you are wrong, so am i ahha! I said it was a vaccine too then I talked about white blood cells, antibodies, immunity, white blood cells.

    I wrote: Ebola caused by micro-organisms, man produced antibodies to fit antigens and kill the virus, recovered, memory cells remained, woman received memory cells

    Personally I wrote about memory cells in his blood and how they'd produce antibodies to fight the virus but honestly either way could be right or wrong. Just depends what they put on the mark scheme!

    Are we even supposed to talk about exams after we've had them? I heard a story about someone getting disqualified or something

    Oh, ok - I feel like OCR were a bit mean on that paper, I spent so much time revising stuff which didn't even come up!! I hope C123 has more actual topics in it

    For the B3 6 marker I also said that some neanderthals could have travelled to other places and became isolated so while the original group became extinct they could have evolved into another species - do you guys think that's right?? Also why were the DNA of D and F from more recent organisms I had no idea??

    Hey, now you'll know about the Nitrogen and Carbon cycle for the rest of your life! That's the point of the exam? Right? :P

    Also the carbon cycle comes up every year, if not in biology then in physics or chemistry.
    I'm never looking at the nitrogen and carbon cycle ever again...ever. I spent AGES preparing for a perfect 6 mark response to those and not even one question was in it. Fml.:yep:

    Congratulations OCR. You win again.

    Did anyone use the spare page on the back of the paper? I used it. For some reason I think the examiner will forget to mark the back :/

    for the DNA question i had literally no idea either, I just wrote a load of random stuff. It made no sense.

    There was no room for me on the B3 one. I write so much on the back there was like a whole new page dedicated for more space, it gave instructions and everything of how to use it. I think it's new
