    Re: Bio exam thoughts

    Anyone do option topic Human Story? That was way easier than expected. Other exams from past years full on asked for specifics on Homo genus and primates and whatnot. The 7 marker was a breeze.

    i spoke about how evolution is a process of gradual change due to certain environmental pressures and spoke about how isolation can facilitate different adaptations ie pentadactyl limb therefore creating divergent evolution blah blah im still fuming i said convergent

    Dw I didn't but I pretty much explained divergent evolution and even gave the Darwin finches example. Must've slipped my mind but it was only like a four marker I think and as long as you had lots of other terminology and stuff.

    Nah I don't think they'd penalise you. It's a simple mistake. I've been reading top responses from past papers as revision yesterday and a lot of them had wrong terminology and stuff. It's up to the marker though but I reckon you'll be right.
