I thought it was the best biology exam I've done! There was definitely an emphasis on validity and investigation, which wasnt good for me, but the 4 mark questions and the 6 markers were decent! Didnt like the Ph questions too.

It was way easier than I thought it would be considering how hard previous papers were, I'd say it was the best paper of the 3

I thought that too.

For the heart labelling questions it was left ventricle and aorta wasn't it? And for the percentage did you get 65.7%?

Specification on epithelial tissue:

Epithelial tissue, which covers some parts of the body.

Epithelial tissue, to cover the outside and the inside of the stomach.
So I believe it was looking for the fact that the tissue simply covers (the outside or inside of) an organ.
