    Does anyone know if we're able to resit either of our A2 exams of BY4 or BY5 if we dont do so well?
    Considering we are the last year with this specification i think.
    You can, the AS are on new spec but people were still able to resit old spec by1&2 this year.

    Respiration was both the ten marker options last year, and no photoperiodism or pest control came up. Also there wasnt too much on nerve transmissions.
    So they'll all probably be in tomorrows paper

    I think there will be section on microbiology too for sure

    Do you think we would have to retake the whole year and stay for a 3rd year in college or could we continue to study in university and just resit the exam in june with independent studying?

    There would be no classes on the old spec, you'd have to learn it independently

    I have a feeling there'll be a 10 marker on population growth or pencillin production using a batch fermenter.

    I hope photoperiodism and batch fermentation never come up. Or even specifying between integrated pest control system and the other one that I don't even know. I've been doing last papers and these stuff rarely ever came up so I haven't really revised them.

    There was a hell of a lot of application of biology questions today... Even AS descriptions of collagen! Was not expecting that haha. But the ten markers at the end were lovely

    I didn't do BY4, I did HB4 and the paper was actually very standard. It was definitely one of the nicer papers!
