I hope they lower the grade boundaries, overall the whole year found it tough and messy. The teachers don't seem satisfied by the responses and the questions.

That’s annoying, so to get an A you will need 88/125 assuming it’s 70% to get an A.

Which ones? Be specific if you are reading from the pics some of them are wrong but I updated the post so hopefully those should be the right answers

Don't even start 😓
I was pleased with my answers for multichoice now I am frustrated. Section 2 was a mess, I hope to get an A I really need it. Come to think of it Section 2 wasn't that horrible as MCQ. But I don't trust myself now 😔
I hope my assignment scores make up for it.
Wow that's great! Congratulations enjoy the moment and I am sure you pass your Bio exam 🤗😊
Are you taking Advanced? I plan on taking Higher 😊😊 What's Higher like?
everyone always doubts their answers when coming out of an exam so I wouldn’t sweat it, you’ll get your A and i might be taking advanced higher, i planned on it but its really chemistry heavy so i’m not sure if it’s the best of ideas. Higher biology isn’t actually that bad. I enjoyed it more than nat 5 but the problem solving can be really tough and some questions are unclear, and there’s a lot you need to know. It seems daunting at the start but the closer you get to the exam it’ll become more and more simple. There’s also essay questions at higher

I hope I do.
Well are the essay questions worth 4 marks as well? The one thing I liked about today's exam were the mini essay questions, it was so easy.
Best of luck for your choices? What are you planning to pursue in? ☺

It can be posted as soon as anyone has access to it- I think a couple of people are going to try and get a hold of a copy over the next couple of days

the essay questions fluctuate. four come up in every exam, but you choose between two. so for example, in the exam today question 3 was an essay and you picked between either writing about the electron transport chain or competitive and feedback enzyme inhibition for 4 marks. then the last question in the paper is always an essay and today it was either write notes on the energy captured by photosynthetic pigments for photolysis and the citric acid cycle or write notes on the bottleneck effect and habitat fragmentation for 9 marks each, all stuff you’ll learn next year! and they were actually pretty good. and thank you! i’m not too sure yet, defiantly uni but as far as courses go i’m still very undecided between a few ideas. good luck for results and highers next year

For that question I put down immune system as that was the only other thing that we got told about alongside the white blood cells and their functions

The question asks you to describe the type of variation which would mean the answer will be continuous variation as discrete variation is controlled by a single gene. Polygenic is the type of inheritance and not the type of variation. Heterozygous is when the genotype has 2 different alleles which would also be incorrect.

For the answer for the process sodium ions move into cells I put diffusion not passive. Do you think they might still accept as it’s still a passive process?
That’s what I put as it said name the process but I didn’t know whether the answer was passive or diffusion

I'm pretty sure it's active transport because it talks about ions
True but active transport is against the concentration gradient but the question was down a concentration gradient

Wait...was there a question where we had to draw the direction of potassium ions. I can’t remember doing that, have I missed one out???

You had to draw an arrow showing the movement of the ions, it was near the start of the paper on the questions about membrane transport and such
