I finished my paper an hour early and decided i'd have a look at the other option questions. I did Genetics for mine. It fucking raped me. I look at Biotechnology and I could nearly answer the questions thoroughly without even studying that option, it was basically BoL... so fucking pissed.

I'm fairly certain that I made up my evolutionary pathways. It was so freaking specific to get those 4 marks!

Should've done booth if you finished an hour early.
They give you your best mark out of the two.

Communication wasn't too bad. I was well prepared for pretty much any question that asked about corrective surgeries and lenses and stuff for the eye and hearing aids/cochlear implants for hearing assistance.

I think i messed up the question about the 3 mammals and hearing a little bit though. I was able to talk about their different hearing ranges and possible reasons but looking back on it i think i may have rambled on too much and not made a clear enough comparison between them, as the question said compare.

Every option had this, and I wanted to kill myself because I forgot the exact numbers for action potentials. D:
I had a feeling that this would be in the test. I studied the fuck out of that whole dot point, thank fuck. Was disappointed in the lack of eye, but think I did well enough to get 24-25

Don't worry about the option you do.

They all get aligned differently (eg. a 20/25 in one option is not equal to a 20/25 in another). So, if the Board of Studies determines Genetics to be more difficult than another, Genetics will align better (eg. a 16/25 in Genetics might equal 21/25 in another option).

Don't worry about it, you will be rewarded.

I did it in a table. Stops rambling, but made my mistakes clearer. :/

THE TEST WAS WRITTEN BY AN EYE SPECIALIST!
I wanted to die!!!
Also, I fucked up myopia for the first time ever... :cry:

Communication did not go well D: - like you, i forgot the exact action potential numbers. The only good parts for me were the 7 mark question about the cochlea implant and hearing aid stuff, oh and the eye part was alright :)
