# Aqa a-level biology 7402 - paper 2 - unofficial mark scheme 13th June 2019

Watch
#1
Drop down any questions and answers from the test and I will produce an unofficial mark scheme based on most popular answers, thanks!

- Describe Succession-
How an ecosystem changes over time (change in species diversity and habitat diversity) – relies on environment being made less hostile by present species via death and decomposition leading to it being outcompeted and replaced by larger better adapted species.

- Percentage question (3sf)
- KJmy calculation question

-Hardy-Weinburg Calculation-
48%

0.61 for rf question.
0.155% first question
48%
3.2?

What did you get for the calculation for KJmy and the percentage question, it was two of the first few questions.

Do you remember the percentage for the question after succession or the calculation for KJ m y question.

I cant remember the percentages exactly but I think between the Sun and vegetation it was 2.1%, between vegetation and Zebra 12.7% and between the zebra and I cant remeber the next one, was it 58% something?.

I worked it out by dividing 2.1 by 100, then multiplying by 12.7 = 0.2667. Then dividing 0.2667 by 100 and multiplying by 58.

0.36= q^2 or recessive
q= 0.6

P must be 0.4 so p^2 = 0.16 ( number of homozygous dominant)

Therefore, 2pq =
0.64 - 0.16 = 0.48

48 percent WAS the answer can’t see how 0.46 was right unless some one can explain otherwise

I got 32% as well... because dominant homozygous would be p^2 so p=0.8 (after square rooting 0.64), then 1-0.8=0.2, then 2pq= 2x0.8x0.2= 0.32

If it is wrong we would still get marks for multiplying 2 by two other numbers.

Yeah thats exactly what I did, think I got the final value confused. Must've been 48 percent if those values are correct.

Probs not seeing as you didn’t have to multiple anything by 2 to work out the answer

Did you the other percentage question where you had to put it to 3sf?
(Original post by The Anarchist7)

I also got 48%. I think the question told you the percentage of Grey body was 64%. That percentage included GG or Gg.
I did 1-0.64 = 0.36 - So 36% must be black body, gg.
Square root of 0.36 = 0.6.
1 - 0.6 = 0.4 ( Since 1 = p + q )
The question asked for heterozygous - 2*p*q
2 * 0.6 * 0.4 = 0.48 = 48%

I remember there was a question asking about photoionisation. ( 2 marks?)
Another question about how to estimate the population of sundews, a type of insect eating plant, in a marshy bog area. ( 5 marks )
The second part to this question was asking why it is beneficial to the sundews to eat insects when there is a low concentration of nutrients in the soil ( 2 marks ?)

There was another question about calculating the volume of distilled water and the concentrated IAA solution to make 40cm^3 of the solution with a concentration of 10 parts per million? ( I really can't remember the question that well, I just know I struggled with it )
