    I did the 2017 ones this week and the depth was quite hard however the breadth was easy.

    Anyone got any predictions of what could come up this year?

    I agree with those above because they haven't came up yet much in the 2016 & 17 paper
    I reckon diffusion, active transport, diseases, lipids, protein structure possibly
