of the top of my head biology - section a: dna question where you had to identify parts of its structure, in the short qs there was ones relating to food (obviously), there was a question on the scientific method, a question on the ear/eye + the musculoskeletal system, a question on nerves, there was a true or false section with questions about the cell cycle section b: heart dissection, digestive activity of seeds and immobilised enzymes section c: a full q ecology comprehension, part of a q was plant reproduction (mother), part of a q was human reproduction, i think part c of question 15 was viruses, the population of microroganism to time graph and we had to draw a bacterial cell, there was a full q on genetics (with a cross) and dna (dna profiling), there was one question that was about both respiration and photosynthesis (it asked about the electron transport chain and pathway 2 of the light stage)

english paper 1 - the theme was different genres (idek) there was a comprehension about an extract from a sci fi text, i didn't do question a from that one so i don't remember exactly what they asked but one of them was smth along the lines of "discuss three things you learn about the characters from this text", the question b was writing a speech on behalf of humanity when aliens try to erradicate the species because of our destructive nature and explain why they should spare us, our faults, our good qualities and how we can work together there was a comprehension about an extract from one of those books about sherlock holmes and the question as were discussing three things we learn about sherlock through the extract, why people widely enjoy the detective fiction genre and the 20 marker was elements of good story telling present. idk the exact question for question b but it was writing an introduction to a collection of essays ab smth the first comprehension i didn't do at all because it was a little difficult, the extract was kind of poetic and abstract language rather than a straightforward story but the question b was writing an article i'm so sorry i ac forget everything lmao but there was two personal essays, one about reflecting on things in your life that make you proud, one about people in your life, celebrating them and the effect they've had on you (i think) err didn't really bother looking at the other options haha but your usual short story was there

english paper 2- poets: boland - how her evocative imagery provokes an emotional response from you, dickinson, wordsworth, rich hamlet q: uncertainty in the play heigtens the dramatic impact it has or discuss the contraditctions of the character hamlet (for some reason everyone thought the question was really difficult but a main character q is always good imo) unseen poetry: 20 marks was language the poet uses to describe different aspects of his experience (he met a crow), i think one of the 10 marker ones was suitability of the title comparative: cc and lg came up, i didn't look at lg but it looked really easy it was something to do with imagery (i think), cc 70 marker was discussing a main characters from each text and how their cc impacts how accepted/rejected they are in their societies, the 30/40 marker was basically the same but broken up
