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.

I got 48 percent
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 )
