    Haven't been able to find a thread for this, so here it goes.

    Anyone else doing the Eduqas exam board (new English version of WJEC) for biology? How are you getting along and what techniques are you using to revise?

    What even was the paper. The only knowledge was knowledge on DNA does anyone know if the glycoproteins question was asking for the structure like tertiary or what it's made up of?
    Also the sweet potato and water potential one was so difficult. Hope the grade boundary is like 16 for a b

    20-45ish
    Best range you'll ever get. If anyone gets over 70 on this exam, i'm calling out that they had the wording of an Angel.
