Hey guys. So exams are coming up and I felt the need to make a thread for the OCR breadth paper, as I did a similar thing last year with a few subjects and it really helped me out, and I'm sure it helped others. So this is a thread to post any predictions, revision techniques, concerns about anything regarding the exam that you may want help for.

My predictions for both OCR breadth and depth papers
-Communicable diseases and the immune system (hasn't featured in many previous exams)
-Biological Molecules(is a topic that has featured on most exams)
-Transport in Plants
-Biodiversity
-Cell structure and Microscopy
-Cell Division

Note-Other topics may appear in the multiple choice section as a small part of the exam.

Sorry you've not had any responses about this. Are you sure you've posted in the right place? Here's a link to our subject forum which should help get you more responses if you post there.


Just quoting in Danny Dorito so she can move the thread if needed :wizard:

Last years Breadth was really nice. I hope we get something similar to that. Biodiversity might be my favorite topic as the questions are usually straightforward.

Yeah hopefully a 4 mark question on calculating Simpsons index . I reckon ventilation will also be a popular one to come up in this years exams, as well as the immune system and disease.
How is revision going for you btw?

Topics such as cell membranes, cell structure, biological molecules, transport in animals will most likely come up in the multiple choice section tbh.

Are both papers the same in terms of what's going to come up except obviously the depth paper having longer styled questions? And if you don't mind can you link some past papers that strictly test the breadth paper i.e MCQ etc

There is no guarantee that both papers are going to have the same topics.
There aren't many past papers that link to our spec.
I would recommend doing a few of these. Many of them contain the shorter style questions, but no multiple choice unfortunately.

Plant transport can be quite difficult, but classification and biodiversity questions should be fine. E.g. a simpsons index calculation question for biodiversity would be nice.

Posted from TSR Mobile
It's fairly simple,

Translocation moves food around a plant in a variety of directions. However, whatever the direction, movement always occurs from a sugar ‘source’ to a sugar ‘sink’.
A source can be any tissue or organ that is making sugar available to the plant. Examples of sources will include leaves where sugar is being manufactured or storage organs such as tubers or rhizomes where stored starch is being hydrolysed by enzymes.
A sugar sink will be any tissue or organ that is actively using or accepting sugar. Prime examples of sinks are growing roots, shoot tips, flowers, seeds and any other organs storing food. This means of course that perennating organs including tubers and rhizomes will be sinks at certain times of the year and sources at other times.

Don't forget to go through the spec and read what u need to know about translocation

Here's the link for the bio fact sheet: http://pmt.physicsandmathstutor.com/...g%20Plants.pdf
