    Okay here goes:

    The mark schemes in Biology, yes BIOLOGY annoys me so much!

    FOR EXAMPLE:
    I answered with something along these lines: It affects the food chain and causes the species to become extinct.

    MARK SCHEME: It disrupts the food chain and reduces biodiversity...

    Whaaaaaaaaattt?? I basically said those words, but just worded differently, but I didn't get the marks!

    If you mark scheme weren't really strict and could use synonmyn instead of their exact words, then I would have did wayyyyyy better!

    Any comments/thoughts?

    My mark scheme stated that the speciation occurred due to geographic seperation.

    I said allopatric specitation.

    0 marks.

    tbf you haven't said how it affects the food chain, and I'm guessing that whatever happened in the question wouldn't definitely cause the species to go extinct. It is annoying because you know the answer, but you just need to get the right words out.
