    It's when two populations of a species are geographically isolated (maybe by a mountain range or a strip of land) so that they are exposed to different environmental conditions. Natural selection occurs in each habitat with the best adapted organisms being able to survive due to mutations (changes in genetic material). Therefore they can breed successfully and will pass on the useful genes/alleles to their offspring. These will be different in the two populations so they can no longer interbreed.
    I think that's what it is..

    I found the B1 C1 P1 exam fine but I'm scared for the B2 and C2 in here! P2 in my opinion is ok but Biology is my weakest science!!

    I'm guessing this year's Section D will be on Biology, I looked at the last couple years which I think had Chemistry and Physics. I may be wrong though.

    I'm doing AQA. I'm cramming everything because I basically concentrated on all my other exams as science are my last exams but I've left it a little late, haha. Biology isn't too bad and so is chemistry as long as you know your stuff. I find physics slightly harder even though it was my best result at unit 1.

    All I say is look at the specification. My stupid ass teacher taught us all the steps for mitosis and meiosis and hammered us saying it is important to know this for the exam but the specification clearly says we don't need any understanding and knowledge of the stages involved in either of them! What a waste of time! Ugh well, saves me some revision I guess.
