    Alright thanks
    And did you divide the table in 2b into each variety of apple or simply into modern and traditional?
    Yea, how'd you guess that?

    People could still be taking the exams, so if we're here discussing it then they could be getting the answers before their exams and hence getting higher marks and the boundaries go up I'm guessing that's what they mean haha

    But there is a reason there are standard exam starting times for each country, there is a window of time for students from one centre to start the paper before any other centre's candidates are released.
    Further, for students from countries with ridiculous time zone differences e.g. those in Malaysia, they have their own separate 'R' papers

    My experiment went like:
    The independent variable is the hatching temperature, and the dependent variable is the gender of liards. Choose five different temperatures (20c, 25c, 30c, 35c and 40c) and take 40 lizard eggs from same parents and divide into 5 groups of 8 eggs each. put each group into a sepearate box and add known volumes of soil measured using measuring cylinder from the same soil bag to cover each group. Incubate each group at a chosen temperature for two months in a thermostatically conrolled incubator and count after two months. Repeat experiment twice with eggs from same species of lizard.
    Gahh I know it's a funny idea that one lizard would give 40 eggs or you switch on incubator for 2 months but I couldn't think of anything else xD Couldn't even come up with a control xD
    Ahh it sounds fine!! Don't worry mybe you'll be compensated with other points that you have wrote!

    For me, I don't know why i didn't think of this experiment, when I saw the nests and soil it directly drew me off to quadrat sampling, I included the right dependent and independent variable but then I mentioned about placing quadrats a in various range of sampling areas with a range of temperatures, included the number generator to find their positions then I said about finding the percentage cover of eggs who hatched to give males and females with including measurements to temperature and light intensity throughout the experiment
    so I don't know if they'll not award me any marks for it but I definitely know that I am probably one in a million who wrote like that because I couldn't find anyone mentioning this experiment

    I think this only happened in 2013 and 14 when it is still called GCE A-Levels but not IAL... or else we could see the R papers on the edexcel page... in hong kong (gmt +8) we have exam at 13:00, but if all the exams really do start at the same time, countries in europe would start at 5 or 6 am (?)

    That could also be right. You can never know what edexcel exactly expected us to write. So don't worry x

    Thank you Chinu, hopefully they expected us to write either of these experiments :yy:

    Lol so I was depressed by this thought!
    That I unintentionally made grade boundaries higher and troubled all those hardworkers who didn't cheat! :/

    But I checked with steven nugus from edexcel and he says it isn't so and they have synchronized exam system so all us have papers at the same time.
    I still wonder how!

    Now that you mention, I think I didn't mention soil either... just keeping in an incubator. But I don't think that it'll be wrong.
