How did it go? What did you think about the QER

Basically just discussed the nitrogen cycle and types of bacteria. Diddnt really know how to link it into farming apart from optimum conditions for decomposition?
Reply 8
I did first, add fertilisers with nitrates, and to also create aerobic conditions and plough the soil so that denitrifying bacteria don't thrive and the nitrates aren't turned back into nitrogen
Reply 9
Yes I wrote that but forgot the fertiliser bit

2018:
Full UMS - 57/80
A* - 47/80
A - 37/80
B - 27/80
C - 17/80

2019:
Full UMS - 51/80
A* - 44/80
A - 37/80
B - 30/80
C - 23/80

BTW, Full UMS means that when they come to find your total grade, if you got full UMS, they will round your score to 80/80 when they average it with unit 2. So if in 2018, you got 57/80, they will just round it up to 80/80 when finding average
