    HL Biology, possibly even worse than lasts years papers?? OrlaOM

    What did everyone make of it? Thought short qs and parts of long qs were very difficult

      Short questions and even some parts of the experiments I thought were crazy

      the second last part of the first experiment q about the ph or something literally meant no sense?? and food q was by far the worst ever

      I agree. Like what other element is there meant to be besides nitrogen in proteins that aren't in anything else.

      Saqs were mean experiments tricky but easily doable. The ph was just to ensure a fair test! Long qs the 'easiest' section

      Ahhhh ladssss.. don't drill on it. It was an awful paper, I agree. Hoping for the pass as well, buuut let's just go forward, and don't look back. We're only making us feel bad.

      There's one guy in my biology class that got 95 in the mocks and I'm pretty sure he's got 100 percent in his LC

      It wasn't bad. Maybe a few of the short questions but it was doable

      The mock paper was easier I thought.. Was aiming to get an A1 but i'd say a C will do at this stage.. fucked it all up

      paper was ridiculous! my biology teacher said afterwards that its the hardest paper she's ever seen so shes expecting a very lenient marking scheme which is good news for higher level!

      The short qs were cancerous. And I didn't study Seed Germination because it came up last year. There are also a few qs not even on the course. Imagine if they put some random essay in history that had nothing to do with the course. People would go crazy.

      got an A in the mock and every test I ever done in biology but it is safe to say i wont be getting an A in that! Felt the questions were extremely specific and some of the wording was quite bad in particular questions. Hopefully the marking scheme is very lenient!!!

      What were those question all about ? Like "Explain how blood goes through the veins" OMg , why couldn't just ask a whole question about heart? to give some more ways to answere the blood question

      Got a C in my mock and was looking for a high C. Theres a 90% chance I failed meaning I won't get my college place now..

      sure it was piss easy lads

      if lots of people found it hard, it will be marked easier than other years to make sure the results go with the bell curve of the national average
