    Hi everyone,

    Good luck to everyone sitting this exam on the 17th May and get revising if you haven't.

    This is the official general exam thread where you can post ANYTHING related to the Biology Unit 1 Exam (B1 AQA).

    Predictions would be appreciated (possible 6 markers, topics which may come up and types of questions).

    Good luck once again!

    Same..but that's AQA for you! :/ Lame statistics and graphs and ethical questions are the latest trends.

    I'm currently retyping the bits I don't know from the specification
    Science is freaking terrifying, and it's my main revision focus (if not only - as it's so time consuming).

    Anybody know what the pass mark will be like?

    (also good luck to everyone :adore:)

    I predict that there will be at least 3 graph/table questions. Usually is in B1.
    Also, it's fairly routine that there will be 3/4 markers on drugs, menstrual cycle/IVF, adaptations in animals, theory of evolution and types of cloning.

    I think there'll be a question on biomass pyramids (drawing and interpreting), and a few questions on food and diet and nerves/synapses since they haven't appeared in a couple of years.

    Last year's pass mark (C) was 20, so it may be 21 or 22 this year.
    Last year's B was a 29 (so 30-31 maybe).
    Last year's A was 38 (40 this year probably).
    Last year's A* was 47 (49-50 possibly.)
