AQA - A- level biology - paper 3 predictions

I think the heart will definitely come up because there’s been nothing in 1st or 2nd paper.
Have a feeling respiration will come up too.
What do you think the essay will be on?

Have a feeling the essay could be on something to do with the blood? Makes sense since heart, kidneys, tissue fluid and haemoglobin haven't been on?? Dunno though, hope its not too bad

On the specimen paper one of them is the importance of movement in living organisms. I feel like that fits in because it has a lot to do with things that have not come up yet.
My predictions based on what hasnt come up:
- Respiration
- Heart, SAN and/or a graph
- Muscles!!
- Homeostasis
- Partial pressures/Hemoglobin
- Gene tech / Genetic fingerprinting
- Nitrogen cycle
- Digestion of lipids?

Essay:
No bloody clue xD. Could be anything really. If it helps the specimen questions were; importance of movement, importance of receptors, nucleotides and water.

Good luck guys! We can do this

Essay: importance of ATP in organisms?

Essay: importance of ATP in organisms?


if that acc comes up ill be so happy
So far the essays that came up are: nitrogen containing compound, diffusion, movement, receptors.

I also think heart can come up because it's a big part, also perhaps the nerves, e.g. Sympathetic and parasympathetic qs

Water came up a couple of years ago

although succession came up in paper 2, there's been nothing on stabilising/directional selection and all that ecology stuff to do with environments and selection pressures?
