    The last one that I have a feeling was about meiosis and genetic variation and I think the last part to question 6.

    I didn't do the last question. I feel like my inability to write fast has cost me a decent grade Feel like I've let myself down so much!!

    There was so much before that though! Don't think so negative, the Sperm cell diagram and functions was a gift of 9 Marks!

    Thank you! I'm just annoyed as most of the paper I had wrote "kiddy" answers and had many periods of mind-block. I've definitely screwed this one up despite having worked so hard! I swear the questions from past papers of the old syllabus were more understandable as to what was being asked. But the questions in today's exam were almost subliminal!!!

    I dont suppose you know if there was a question on polyspermy on the paper and if so where? One of my class mates mentioned it and I was stood there like erm... No there wasn't haha

    There was a multiple choice 1 marker that asked the function of the cortical granules and I think the answer was to prevent polyspermy

    How'd it go ?
    I think it went really well. Doing lots of past papers definitely helped as some very similar questions came up.

    I'm trying to think, I think there was the question on the eels from all the different countries and natural selection? Might not have been the last question.

    Seeing as you done the same paper as me was there a question on polyspermy and if so where was it? Think I might have missed a question.
