I really want to move tiers to do higher so I can get a grade 6 to do science but I haven't really been taught higher content and I'm getting 5-5s In foundation, I would love to move to higher but there's loads of content I would have to learn for all 3 sciences and I don't think it's ideal to do that in 2 weeks, but I really want to study science for a levels (biology) is there any alternatives? Or suggestions/advice on what I could do?

There was a six marker near at the end of the paper. They gave us the appartus with microscope, prepared onion cell slide and 15cm ruler and u had to write about how the student can use those to calculate the length of the onion cell

Can anyone remember any of the questions? There’s an unofficial mark scheme for the higher paper which obviously contains some of the questions in the foundation but there is currently no form of this for foundation paper

I don't have it, it is currently only accessible to teachers as they use it for mock exams and assessments.
