What topics do we think are coming up guys? As 50% is AS content I suspect xylem and phloem will come up with a 6 marker on muscle fibres. Let us know below!

5 marker on oxidative phosphorylation and chemiosmosis, last year they had a 5 marker on photosynthesis so it's possible

I hated paper 1, way too many questions about analysis of graphs/tables and the 6 markers were nasty so i'm hoping this paper will be more straightforward.

That seems like a pretty good prediction to me, time to go through respiration again bc it's refusing to stay in my head lol

The 6 marker on antibiotics was hard to analyse and the distribution of animals was bit strange to answer and then the final 6 marker, I forgot a few points. But I think grade boundaries will go up to 60% for an A

well 66% was an A* last year

My teacher said grade boundaries will go up by 5% for each grade

so 210/300 for A*

A Grade will probs follow a similar pattern

I think there will be long mark questions on SAN and avn, rod and bipolar cells and respiration coz they weren't in last years paper. Oh and probably fmri and brain scanning. Also think there will be more on parts of the brain as there wasn't any last year. Good luck everyone

I put anatomical and physiological as hibernation is physiological as far as i'm aware. Were we supposed to multiple by 850g for the difference in metabolic rate question?

I think it was anatomic physiological and behavioural. And you have to multiple by 850 then 24 then divide by 1000

I think that paper went decently well but did anyone else feel like there was barely any of the last two topics and quite a bit of repetition? It feels like I've learnt all this information and maybe 10% of the syllabus in total has come up, excluding all of the graph and data questions

Hey guys, it might be best if you make an unofficial markscheme and tag me in, that way I can promote it around the site and get it filled in as quickly as possible.

I hope you all smashed your exams today.

I said it fused with the cell memebrabe and released the broken down stuff in exocytosis. No idea if it's right but it could be 😂
