    in the purple pearsons health and social care book it states 'Principles of growthGrowth describes an increase in quantity. For example, children grow taller as they getolder. As height increases, so does weight – this is referred to as a process of growth.Although growth is continuous, the rate is not smooth. There can be periods of morerapid growth in infancy and again during puberty which means there can be quite adifference between the rates of growth of two people who are the same age. Thereare also differences in the growth rates of boys and girls. Growth rates also vary indifferent parts of the body, for example the head circumference grows more rapidlythan other areas in the first months of life. When referring to growth it is important toconsider two dimensions:▸▸ weight▸▸ length/height'


    So can this mean that maybe i got the answer right? im just really stressed out right now about the exam lol

    I think I wrote similar to you - I hope we're right!! Did you finish the paper? I didn't do the last 26 marks...and wasn't confident with the rest, but the general consensus of my class was that it was very pushed for time

    Of course it was pushed for time, 90 marks in 90 minutes, quite literally minute a mark, way way way tighter than any other a level exam I've had or even BTEC level 2 for that matter - so unfair, fingers crossed the grade boundaries are somewhat low as everyone in my class said they think they've failed it

    I really hope so! Even my friend, who finished both the mock/specimen papers in an hour, and got distinctions, came out saying she barely finished!
