    Re: HSC Biology Exam [Discussion]

    somehow I forgot to use a named example for the first short answer question (I was having PTSD from multiple choice), will i still get one mark or go straight to 0? if I remember correctly it was out of 2 marks.

    besides that, here are some actual multiple choice questions from the 2017 paper

    1 What is the name of the process that enables organisms to maintain a relatively stable
    internal environment?
    A. Osmosis
    B. Adaptation
    C. Homeostasis
    D. Active transport

    Which of the following body systems is involved in detecting and responding to
    environmental changes?
    A. Circulatory
    B. Digestive
    C. Excretory
    D. Nervous

    so i feel like the b6 cut off will be much lower considering the questions we got, i wanna say low 80s

    Lol those 2017 questions are NOTHING compared to 2018 questions. Also, you will probably lose only one mark provided that you had 2 responses for temperature change.

    I hope the b6 cut off is same as the 2010 paper. Like a 79 went up to 95

    i feel like it's one of those things where if you found it easy you weren't thinking hard enough so don't worry about that! cause the stimuli were honestly really easy to misinterpret, especially for Genetics (for example the pedigree showed individuals diagnosed with cancer, not with the syndrome itself, etc)

    Not gonna lie, can't compare anything to the 2017 paper, it was probably one of the easiest papers ever made lol. I am keen to check this year's paper out and try it out myself.

    Do you guys remember the vaccine question?

    - Was it a different vaccine every year?
    - Did you guys do a line graph or column graph?

    Re: HSC Biology Exam [Discussion]

    I did a column graph because the data wasn't continuous.

    Re: HSC Biology Exam [Discussion]

    was anyone else confused by the mutated aldosterone gene question? that one really threw me off and I wasn't sure how to answer it. Were they hinting to beadle and Tatums experiment?? how did everyone else find it?

    I did a line graph since it was showing the effectiveness of the vaccine over time but Im not sure if that will be considered 'suitable'

    Yea, I wrote how a mutation causes a change in the genetic code... gene expression... etc. etc. and how this can lead to a change in function.
