AQA Biology Module 8 18th June... Watch
Wasn't there an essay question about microscopes once, wtf if I got that in the exam I think I'd hulk out.
anyone got told topics that might come up?
Some of the stuff on synoptics is drilled into us since day 1, like enzymes are not something you exactly need to revise.
My favourite two essays so far have been 'Bacteria and there affects on humans and other organisms (excluding diseases)' and 'Carbon Dioxide and its importnace in biology'
One leads into the cycles, genetic engineering, ruminant digestion etc. as well as work on Kingdoms and you could talk about them simply being part of the food chain. Photosynthesis as well as some are autotrophs.
The other, photosynthesis, respiration (aerobic and anaeroibc in plants), carbon cycle, transport of gases, global warming and deforrestation as a final note?
I've got - effect of it on enzymes and tmperature control within the body...apart from that I'm stuck!
Tricky one that
has some example of synoptic essays, how to plan them etc... i've found it quite useful.
going to completely fail the essay though, even when i put a lot of things in still seem to get crap marks...meh
how long are the essays meant to be?
a question on hormones would be fit! i just hope that comes up.
and another thing which annoys me about this synoptic module and the essay is that anyone who has resat an exam is at an immediate advantage...and that annoys me. mainly because i did all the resits i needed in january in order to have a free summer to concentrate on these exams but other buggers who have just done resits have a significant advantage in knowledge over the likes of me...
have hormones ever come up before?
Shape and Form
Which isn't great because they're all pretty tricky! I hope they ask an essay on hormones too, that would be a god send.
Digestive ones: Secretin, Gastrin, CCK-PZ
Ovulation: FSH, LH, Oestrogen, Progesterone
Respiration: CoA,NAD any others?
Photosynthesis: RuBP*something*, NADP (i don't know the name of this hormone anyone?)
Hormone recogntion: glycoproteins on the cell membrane
Water Regulation: ADH
Anything else? We don't actually cover what hormones are made from do we?
