OCR Biology A level predictions for paper 3?

hi everyone! now that we have done both the paper 1 and paper 2 for ocr a-level, what will be coming up for paper 3? i think that neuronal communication will have some part in it considering there was literally no questions about it in the paper 1 lol :smile:

So true had nothing on Punnet Squares or Cloning in paper 2 either

The heart didn't come up so maybe

Heart, muscles/neurons and genetic crosses. Maybe more stats-tests
Maybe the carbon or nitrogen cycle as that hasn't come up yet.

maybe the heart tied in with the M5 chapter on heart regulation (vagus nerve etc)
biotech and microorganisms
glucose level control (autoimmune disease link?)
i hope heart comes up
biotech already came up for ocr tho? with synthetic biology

Can someone create a document and just add the topics that didn’t come up and then people can make their own choices what to cover

but not likely as it was heavy in 2023. exam boards are legally obliged to assessed all parts of their spec within the span of 3 years, so if immobilised enzymes came up in 2023 it’s not likely it’ll come up again as they need to assess the other stuff.

Is it not a bit strange that patterns of inheritance is not included?

that’s what i was thinking
Neuronal communication is likely to come up since it didn't come up at all on paper 1? I think it could be tied to electrical activity of the heart with CNS - so medulla oblongata etc?
