    How long do you think it will take to complete the chapter on Application of Reproduction and Genes?

    Not long once you've understood the main principles, can maybe finish it to good quality in 2 dedicated days? Maybe even 1 if you can work fast

    I have a feeling that both will be ecological based questions,

    Perhaps describing the energy flow in an ecosystem

    Inheritance (i.e genetic crosses), Plant reproduction, Human reproduction will all definitely come up.

    For Ecology, I think deforestation will be the big topic because as far as I remember, haven't seen a major question on it since 2011.

    What do you predict the essays will be on?

    I predict either:

    wind vs insect pollinated plants
    genetic fingerprinting
    polymerase chain reaction
    and possibly..but idk, isolation, natural selection and evolution.

    I haven't seen plant fertilisation as a 10 marker yet... But maybe I'm just being extra hopeful it isn't an ecology question.
