    Uhm, I think it could possibly be:

    B1 = Clones
    B2 = Immunity and fighting disease..
    B3 = Evolution/Carbon cycle

    Good luck on your exam!
    I haven't revised nearly enough but that's what youtube is for XD

    Ah that's a possibility...

    And on interpreting data? How do you mean? If you mean graphs, you're usually trying to look for a positive/negative correlation and for a trend. If it's a bar graph or a table, they sometimes ask for a percentage increase or decrease. Best thing to do when it comes to data is to read the question thoroughly and read the data super carefully because they might try and catch you out.

    I guess the usual things if you Havnt revised already, natural selection, genetic mutation and simple knowledge perhaps about bacteria, arteries/veins. If you skim past papers that will most likely help but ADH, Smoking effects and reproduction is what I would guess apart from the usual

    If I can remember rightly for the gap fills I put...
    Protein (about what a gene does)
    DNA (for the chromosome coil)

    And then for the last part of the gap fill for the different alleles for male and female I didn't know what to put

    For the last one I put that they hadn't had as much of a chance to evolve and develop new characteristics etc so their genes were still most like the ancestors genes

    Yeah same, the fact that there are are many genetic similarities suggests that there has been a limited amount of time in which the genes could mutate and thus they are relatively new or whatever. where as the other specie had "medium" similarities and so it has had more time/ chances to mutate and thus indicating that it is relatively old in comparison.
