Biology paper 1 2023

Why was that biology higher aqa paper so different and terrible like the questions were basically just about photosynthesis, starch and a few Other topics like there was no mitosis, active transport, food test, animal or plant cell? How did everyone answer the ) markers? I think I’ve failed that one definitely.

There was definitely a question on mitosis, as well as a few on cell structure of eukaryotic and prokaryotic cells.

That was by far the easiest test I've done so far. My only real difficulty were the 1 markers😆.
There were questions on mitosis remember the 3 marker or was it 4. The 6 markers were relatively straight forward, alveoli and just knowing how to explain exercising method.

Well now I'm worrying since I didn't put a single thing about alveoli in any question 🗿

for real, for the 1 markers one of them asked what tissue is used in stem cells for plants and the answer was meristem, however i put root hair tissue!
Another one was the one asking about what plant is aspirin made from, not knowing it was willow bark :frown:

I got the meristem one but I got the aspirin, and the y equals Mx plus C and pacemaker wrong
