really does help and ive noticed you put science unnoficial markschemes up too when will yhou be able to put the b2 higher paper up if you can thanks
Nah I'm nowhere near as confident with biology sorry, I don't think I'll do one for chemistry or physics either because I have unit 2 and unit 3 together so I can't really remember anything from unit 2 once I've done unit 3.

Looking at the question, I think anything below 29 would be marked wrong. If you put something like 29.2 there's a chance they'll allow it.

I'm pretty sure 30 won't be allowed: http://prntscr.com/fhxaup

It's only 1 mark, though - just focus on doing as well as you can in Paper 3
