Hey guys, Just wanted to see if anyone had any ideas for the paper 2 biology exam coming up in two days? I’ve heard a lot of people saying it’s gonna be on genes and the eye and the nitrogen cycle etc. How did people find paper 1 and what did they find hard?

i think they'll be nice. i hope they'll be nice.
i'm gonna look at the heart, the eye, the three cycles, yoghurt production, the burning food experiment, vaccinations cause i think they might do a question on that with relation to the real world and probably cloning too. i can't think of. anything else.
was paper 1 more plant heavy or human heavy?

Yoghurt is only paper two topic anyway so that is quite obvious; the last question on paper 1 was kind of beer making?
