I'll be honest, I thought it was very easy overall. They could have given us much harder questions that's for sure.

Nobody has the grade boundaries and the only people that would have any sort of markscheme are those who have made unofficial ones themselves.

I feel like my answers were stupid. For example for the one about finding the concentration in the egg I said to draw that percentage change graph and then where it crosses over the x-axis would be the concentration inside the cell

I think that's right because it's were the concentration is equal inside and outside so no osmosis happens which I think would be where it crosses the x axis but you have to say that you use the same egg in different concentrations until there is no change in Mass I think

It was so hard, I couldn't understand some calculation questions and I was running out of time.
Hopefully I'll do better on paper 2

That’s exactly what I put. That exam made me question why I bothered revising.

You would need to say that you would use different concentrations of solution until the mass of the egg stays the same so the net movement of osmosis is zero which tells you the concentration of the egg is the same as the solution.

Do you mean the one about why you would need an artificial pacemaker?

Timing was a serious struggle in this paper! The questions I thought were somehow hidden most times and you had to decipher their real meanings. The exam paper was very long and the exercises were long winded! What a great start to this new GCSE course!!!
