Hi!
I've noticed that in previous years, people were creating such threads to help each other, share resources, predictions etc so I thought it would be good to do the same thing this year.
It applies to Twenty First Century Sciences (Chemistry Biology and Physics) in 2017.

Not really, I'm just worried that as it is the last exam in this specification, OCR may surprise us with some stuff that has never come up..

Any predictions for Biology Tomorrow?
Hiyas! Well, personally, i have no idea what's actually going to come up,because this is the last year, so OCR is either gonna pull a few new questions to, or theyre just going to use similar style topics/questions to previous papers. Butttt, i think that genetic testing, herd immunity, cystic fibrosis/huntingtons, interdependence and food chains, nitrogen cycle, phagocytosis and immune system, heart disease...will come up, although can't say for sureee! so soweeeeeee. xxx

Knowing OCR, they'll probably come up with something that has never come up in the past.. I know they've never put any 6 markers on the Carbon Cycle... hmm

Well, Im just saying that apparently the exam boards have to cover the specification throughout the time that it "exists" and as we're the final year, they might surprise us with some weird stuff

11. understand that Darwin’s theory of evolution by natural selection was the result of many observations and creative thought and why it is a better scientific explanation than Lamarck’s (e.g. fits with advances in understanding of genetics, no evidence or mechanism for inheritance of acquired characteristics).

they might want to cover this point of B3 spec... I've never seen it before

I hate OCR. They'll probably come up with something completely different just to trick us.
