    I was pretty much dead at that point xD but I think it was just about the process of monoclonal antibodies

    Found the first part of that question difficult the latter part not as bad
    Overall the test was all right

    for the milk maths question it was like 559.67:

    ok let me explain:

    500ml amount contained

    1000/620*500=ans1
    2.4/4.7*500=ans2

    final = ans1-ans2

    please correct me on the values

    edit: No units needed changing! The amount contained in the milk should be compared to GDA and the units were the same for each on both of them(like a ratio). This ratio is then multiplied by 500cm^3 (there was no conversion of units as the cm^3 part was for the milk only)

    yes and you had to describe how they would do this(cloned embryo from patient as a source of stem cells)... and how stem cells can make tissues... which could be combined to make an organ(lung) and put into the patients body.( also state therapeutic cloning useful as will not be rejected from body as genetic info in cloned stem cells same)

    if you put all that you should get full marks, was that a 6 marker?

    Should we have changed units for the maths with the milk? They weren't in the same units

    didn’t you need to convert the 2.4 and 4.7 to cm? it was in micrometers but the 620 was in cm

    no because the amounts there were just a ratio for amount in milk in comparison to GDA

    I converted on mine, but the conversions aren't on the biology spec - only chem and physics, so I was unsure.

    I thought we would have to at first but then I realised that both the values for vitamin b12 were in the same units so you didn't have to.
