    Carbon fixation is the process of attaching a carbon via means of a carboxylase. In the A-Levels, the most prominent occurence is in the Calvin Cycle where the CO2 molecule is 'fixed' on to the 5C RuBP via Rubisco (RuBP carboxylase) before it degrades to 2 3C GPP and converted to triose phosphates

    Hope it helps!
