im back again, i just couldnt resist...lol...well, i have 3 synoptic papers on consecutive days, so now i either fail one of them or do 50/50 in all three...man i'd like to have a serious chat with whoever came up with this exam timetable, not even half a day in between each exam...what the hell??!! seriously, last year people had 3 days between last 2 exams, well, if they were doing chemistry and physics and biology as well. this sucks.
I see i'm not the only one who messed up C4 as well, once again they put C4 with chemistry unit 5, two impossible subjects????!! we ARE humans you edexcel people!!!

I actually think I've lost more marks than I gained. I can't think of one question which I have got anywhere near full marks. I'm definitely not going to get an A, definitely not a B, very highly unlikely a C, highly unlikely a D, unlikely an E, probably a U. Oh well I could always get a job at asda.

Gosh, unit 5 wasnt HARD biology, that is if we read all those things, bcos it wasnt like we wernt familiar wiv wat was brought out, we jus didnt expect to be caught short like that, they will def reduce the grade boundaries, as i expect a whole nation of people to do badly.....jus hopin for the best....

Yellow patches: magnesium is am important constituent of chlorophyll, hence as the magnesium ions deplete in the soil, the chlorophyll might break down/no formation of new chlorophyll, hence the green colour fades and the carotenoids which is masked by chlorphyll will show up its colour, which is yellowish orrange.
I think the carotenoids colour wouldn't be shown up, rather the orange / yellow spectrum would be absorbed less (due to the lack of chlorophyll) causing these colours to be reflected and so the plants appearing yellow.

Edit: actually you're right... there goes another 3 marks or so.

I've well and truly failed this test though; I think I'm looking at a B very maximum . I always find my answers are more succinct online too, instead of the vague, hazy ones I give in exams.

i like the fact that in the poll it only goes to grade C, and doesnt bother with seperate ones for lower grades, lol, i personally would go all the way with the grades, definitely not U,N, but E,D,C seem more likey, C only if grade boundaries hit the floor..

It's only two marks for that question so don't get too stressed out on it..I'll probably get a B or a very low A..

hey, 3 synoptics on consecutive days isn't as bad as 5-ish synoptics (three sciences and FP2/FP3) the whole week

and don't get my started on the january timetable we/i had this year. exams for the whole month

all of unit 6 (synoptic and cw) is worth 70 raw marks
which is 100 UMS
the cw is out of 32 raw marks-and synoptic is 38

you need about 50 on synoptic (according to recent grade boudnries) to get an A
so i got 28 on my coursework- i would need about 20 more marks on synoptic to get 80 for unit 6
(but of course i need higher than that since i ****ed up unit 5 so badly)
I think i got similar c/w marks to you, like a mid/low B, how many marks do we roughly need in the synoptic?
