Ok…..I was a little sad coming out of biology today,nothing to do with the paper but cos i realised just how much i’m going to miss it. My class maturely shouting “willys” throughout the sexual reproduction chapter and playing who wants to be a millionaire..it really was the best…= [
Much like the class the paper was THE BEST, my best exam thus far I’d say. This is the point where anyone who dislikes biology should stop reading btw! I loved the paper,and it wasn’t just that love where you realise afterwards that it was all just in the heat of the moment and due to the over consumption of a substance such as caffeine or alcohol. It was and still is that slow steadfast love that actually gets better over time and makes you feel all warm and fuzzy inside(can you see why I want to do medicine??),It was quite the way to end my love affair with biology…
I breezed through the short questions in 10 minutes and the experiments were another 12-ish minutes of my life well spent. The long questions were slightly dissappointing in that the excretory system and respiration seemed to be missing from the party. Otherwise they were fantastisch. The dna was kinda weird in that the outcomes are on the home ec. course not the biology course…? Oh well.Q.15 more then made up for that. I’m a pro at the male reproductive system( = P ) and I felt like I was already a little med student when I was doing part c. I can’t actually remember anything else in particulr off the paper so I won’t even attempt any in-depth analysis but Overall it was a totally awesome paper and this blog was totally pointless I think cos I’m pretty sure i’m the only one who loves biology quite this much but it’s written now so I might as well post it = ]
In the end I got every qestion done,which includes a,b and c of Q14 +15, with over an hour to spare so I looked over it twice and then left to go pester the art history students(sorry bobby!) while I waited for my mammy^_^
I really hope everyone got on as well as I did! People I talked to afterwards seemed to be happy with it at least! did anyone out there have any problems with it? cos i will hunt you down….joke!…..well,only kind of…*_*
Now I best stop lamenting the loss of my second favourite subject in favour of studying my favourite,4 days of pure chemistry study…It’s like my dream come true! and yes,I really am THAT weirdly in love with science and it’s many wonders… so my blog next tuesday will probabley(hopefully!) be even more sickeningly happy then this one,till then….
Oh and good luck to all you poor unfortunates doing german, d.c.g ,physics and ag.science!
