    What did you write for 6 marker?
    I said carbohydrates release energy, fats release energy and are also stored for insulation, proteins are used for cell repair, replacement and growth, fibres are used to keep the digestive system working, and vitamins are needed in small amounts to keep basic bodily functions healthy. I didn't know what else to put after that lol

    Would saying Carbohydrates and fats "produce" energy be acceptable instead of "release" do you think?

    Do you reckon I would get marks for identifying the components like fats, carbohydrates, proteins etc? I didn't mention the functions of them though - mind went blank. I also mentioned that all these components are needed because in order to have a healthy diet you need a balance of these components. If it does become unbalanced then you could become malnourished - overweight and underweight. Do think I would get marks for putting this in my answer for the 6 marker?

    I'm a GCSE student myself, but I would say you would get some marks for that 6 marker.

    I can't remember what I wrote or what the question was, but it was something like this. Boys seem to drink more beer than girls as (quoted a figure) drink beer in boy and (quoted a figure) in girls, while girls seem to drink more (listed the alcohols) than boys. (It was only 2 marks so I didn't think to go into much detail)

    partially? because it did state that you need to explain why you need the components. I,e carbs because its a slow release of energy.

    could have mentioned water - required for all chemical reactions to take place in the body and it keeps you hydrated

    The diet topic and indicator animals topics were the only ones I didn't really revise and they both came up
    I was doing the whole 6 marker on educated guess work but don't know if it's right
    - carbohydrates
    - convert into glucose for respiration, energy release
    - convert into glycogen to be used by the muscles (?)
    - fats
    - energy source when insufficient carbohydrates
    - energy store
    - proteins
    - broken down into amino acids to be built into other substances needed by the body
    - vitamins/minerals
    - correct functioning of the body
    - water
    - used to transport substances
    - osmosis, stability of cells so that animal cells do not shrivel (I had no idea what I was writing lol)
