Thanks to our observant colleagues who have pointed out a few errors in the marking instructions for the Higher Biology prelim 2019
Higher Biology
Paper 2
Q2 Answers should be (a), (b)(i), (b)(ii) and not (a), (b) and (c) as we had it

Q7 (c)  875 000
Q7 (e) The fish with favourable alleles / genetic sequences survive different environment / conditions / food / predators / selection pressures / other appropriate (on either side of isthmus).    1 mark

There was also a slip in m/c q 17 where reptile appears as "retile" in one of the incorrect options.
If you would like a new copy of the file with all these corrected then just contact us and we will email one straight away.

Higher Human Biology
Mark scheme. Q17(f)  3rd line should read "Increases to 100 mg/cm3 at 240 minutes / 180 minutes from start / 90 minutes later"
Q12 (b) Should read "Structure Z produces progesterone" and not structure R which doesn't exist.
As always, if you would like a corrected copy of the file then just contact us and we will email one straight away.
