Re: Macromolecules and key biological principles

Hi, I am sorry for your bereavement and it does sound like it has been a very busy and stressful month for you. To be honest, this unit is probably one of the most challenging units we have, due to the complexity of the topics included. However, tutors are limited to some extent in the guidance that...

Re: Appeal a grade

Hi,
If you want to appeal, them please ensure that you have emailed your tutor. It is then up to your tutor whether the query before she went on leave counts as the initial notification.

Re: Appeal a grade

Hi, Yes, the handbook states that in the first instance you should raise the query of your grade with your tutor within 5 working days. Since your tutor referred you to the student handbook, have you already done this? There is also a cover tutor that you can email, who can at least record your diss...

Re: Macromolecules and key biological principles

Page 41 of the DLC materials covers anaerobic respiration. Another good source is

Re: Macromolecules

For TAQ 1, you need to be able to explain Mendel's three laws of inheritance and link them to his experiments.

Re: Really confused and struggling

I don't know about the Human Biology book, if it doesn't help then you had better request an extension from your tutor.

Re: Really confused and struggling

Hi,
Yes that is correct.

Now that you are part way through the assessment another tutorial may help you.

Re: Really confused and struggling

Hi, First of all I recommend that you book a tutorial with your tutor, as this is quite a challenging unit. TAQ 1 part 1:The question asks you about the three laws of inheritance, these need to be clearly explained with reference to Mendel's work. TAQ 2 There are 4 parts to this question, and these ...

Re: Struggling

You will have been sent a code for an exam guide. About half way through the guide there is a checklist on what to revise. You should revise pages 26-38 on the materials document, learning both the functions and the structures of the macromolecules, including being able to recognise molecules . In t...

Re: aspects of Human Physiology TAQ 3 part 2 B

Hi, The key to this question is to understand the effect of the hormone ADH. What effect does it have on the kidney? How does this then affect the blood and urine? You can really go into some depth here and explore the effect at the cellular level. You should then be able to explain what happens whe...

Re: macromolecules

Hi TAQ 1 parts 2a and 2b. The way to do these questions is to set it out step by step. Start with the genotype of the parents. Underneath list the possible gamete genotypes they produce. Then construct the punnett diagram. There's quite a bit about this in the DLC materials. It is important then to ...

Re: Struggling :( Intro to physics TAQ 4

In that case I recommend that you request a tutorial with your tutor to see what it is about circuits that you are having problems with.

Re: Struggling :( Intro to physics TAQ 4

It depends which part of TAQ 4 you are struggling with.
It really helps to print out/draw the diagram of the circuit, and then write on it what you know from the question, as well any other voltages, current or resistance that you have worked out.
