I finished an hour early, I think? It was much easier than my prelim and the multiple choice was an absolute blessing. Everyone else that I talked to that finished early thought they also did (really) well and that the whole paper was easier than expected.

There were a few dodgy questions but that's about it. I managed to get around them in the end!

Went easier than expected as well! The only tricky one was the one about using predator instead of pesticide. Probably because we never studied it at school or at least not in my school. They may, however, increase the percent for the grades which would suck.

I put "natural control" for that, but 5 minutes after I left I realised it was "biological control." We never really went over that in fourth year but we did go over it early on in third year and it was lodged too far back!

I found the lactose/lactase one a bit challenging too but I got around that thankfully.

Oh, there was also another one with the average rate of decreasing abundance of flowers or something. Many people I talked to got 10.8 but I got 2.5 for some odd reason :v

That's why I don't remember it. I wasn't here in third year.

I got 2.5 as well I think that was the right answer. 10.8 doesn't make sense really.

I got 2.5 too, I did it without a calculator because I was getting 10.8 when I did that but obviously that's not right

Did anybody else notice that Q7 had 2 of the same things printed? A and C and B and D were definitely the same.

Am I the only one that found it hard!? I hate biology! I was hoping I could scrape a C but the boundaries will probably be going up

I got 2.5 because people went wrong when they turned a percentage into a percentage😂 It was a really good paper but it wasn't like any other paper I had done before, that's for sure! Few trick questions, one that annoyed me was on the multiple choice and it asked what the most common individual phenotype was? I put B I think.

Did anyone feel that was more like a maths test than biology? They missed out so much like the brain, neurones???
