I really like module 2, it's the easiest and most interesting in my opinion. Module 3 & 4 (especially 4) are the worst for me.

ARGH
same here!
I understand it in the revision guides but the paper questions totally throw me off. All I know is that gene probes bond with the dna because of complimentary base pairing?

Im doing mods 2 and 3, feeling most confident about 2

riniging is all about simply taking the bark off with the phloem and so it shows translocation stops.

'Structure and function of DNA'
Thats a good prediction. It can cover gene therapy (CFTR), mutations, natural selection, nucleotides, complementary base pairing, transcription, translation. Nice.

I think it'll be on either:
1. The importance of lipids in plants and animals (of which there are loads!!)
2. The importance of the cell membrane

i think what makes it so hard...the whole i learn it, understand, but can't do the papers, is the fact u have to apply the theory to really random situations!! plus they are so sodding specific so its really hard to mark ur own papers from the mark schemes!
