No. They’ve already examined us on it so we can’t expect them to do it again. We can expect more detail of photosynthesis because there was only a MCQ on it.
We can expect respiration as it wasn’t examined, hormonal communication, animal responses, etc.

Do you think Ecosystems, patterns of inheritance and more of module 2 to come since they have seemed to be more in MCQ(well M.2. anyway)?

i definitely feel like there should be a big inheritance question which links to chi squared and critical value
since both papers are done. what are we thinking for paper 3???

Expecting a link between DNA (module 2) and PCR (module 6)
Maybe Stem cells (module 2) to diabetes treatment (module 5)
Respiration and Photosynthesis
Haven't seen much about ECGs or those P, Q, R S wave diagrams - maybe link that to heart rate practical or adrenaline fight or flight response idk

I'll prepare some topics later, but this is all I can think of
