i know…. biology was supposed to my worst subject not this 😭😭 i’ve been getting As on the school exams but the papers are so unpredictable (often having things it shouldn’t) so i’m really worried
anyone know the structure for the essay ?

luckily my teachers were fairly good with that, try talk about the issue at hand, solutions/methods to reduce the issue, then analyse the methods (advantages and disadvantages and how it reduces enviro impacts). have your teacher made any predictions for the essays?

do you think the question could be something like ‘discuss how methods of controlling the biogeochemical cycles reduce global climate change’ because that would be a dream

yeah hopefully something like that!! last years 25 marker was tricky with the properties of pollutants but i really also hope the 25 marker may be on pollution as well since there’s just so much to say about it!

Think this is ur fault ??? you preempted it 😭😭

I thought the second 25 marker was really nice. Talked about economic development, perception on nuclear energy, how intermittency caused by changing weather patterns affects choice, locational restraints of HEP and 2 other paragraphs that I can't remember. Overall 7/10 paper :smile:
