I said that they could have identified the species of insect when the body is fresh, bloated and dry, the length of the larvae and the stage in the life cycle
Kinda waffled tho

Yeah I found it pretty tight for time with the 6 markers and wasn’t keen on the time of death questions but apart from that I thought it was a nice paper!

I agree I spent 5 mins going through the paper in the beginning and at the end whilst looking through it, I realised i forgot to answer a question the one about clotting factors and different ages of 20 year old and 70 year old, I made bullet points as i only had 2 mins and had to look through the rest of it.

Immune response will probably come up on paper 3, article has a heavy emphasis on stem cells and may ask about stuff like tissue transplants, antigens etc and immune response in that regard.

SO true!!!
Didn’t like that there were so many “investigate a practical questions” that were 4 marks like so random 😅 usually they are at least 6 marks
