Olivia Noonan. Rockwell CollegeOlivia – Higher Level 

This is one of my favourite subjects but was still nervous about what questions were going to come up. I think I had done OK in the practical/project which I believe and hope accounts for 50%  of the exam.
I started with the short questions which I must admit I found more difficult than the mocks. These were a little different to other short questions in different subjects because we had to answer 20 out of 24.
On to section B, I started with question 4 about the heart. I found this easy enough because luckily i had studied the exact question for science. I then went on to question 2 which wasn’t too difficult. For question 1, i hadn’t really studied the topic on cheese but i got through it fine. I found question 5 a bit tricky in particular  the part on water pollution. I left question 3 and 6  because i hadn’t studied question 6 and question 3 seemed the hardest out of the rest. Overall I thought it was a fair paper.
I wish like others I was finished today but unfortunately I have one more left on Tuesday.
