I have found them ok, the only issue is that most of the mark schemes appear to be very harsh and definitive, which can be demotivating. However, if an examiner thinks your point is relevant then you will get the marks.
Its impossible to predict what will come up as its the first exam

I've heard that Paper 1 will be more content-based and Paper 2 more skills/practical-based but originally I was told both papers were a random mix of topics... Anyone got some clarification on that?

Specimen papers are always hard as they haven't really thought about questions and mark schemes, you'll find what you put was correct, but not on the MS, however it will be awarded in the real exam

aiming for an A but i think that is abit optimistic.
errm i dont think so because it isnt on the spec or in the book so no apoplast.
immune system:
1) antigens identified as foreign by phagocytes
2) hydrolyze pathogen
3)activate t-cells
4)activate helper t-cells
5)activate b-cells
6)release antobodies specific to antigen to form antigen-antibody complex

no its mixed but from what i have seen it has been like that where practical is usually in paper 2 dont take the chance. However i have made a few predeiction

the may ask you to draw how a glucose join with glycocidic bonds, or draw amino acids etc

and they may ask you to compare how meiosis is different to mitosis
or even mitosis and binary fission so go over all practicals and know how to interperet those graphs hope this helped
