Glycogen and amylose are used for energy storage. Glycogen is found in animals. Amylose is found in plants. Describe how the structure of glycogen allows it to perform its function and explain the advantage to animals of using glycogen as an energy

First of all I'd realise that the questions is asking you to make a comparison between glycogen and amylose and their suitability, so would advise the candidate to make two separate bullet point lists for planning.Then i'd highlight how for higher marks, this question require you to link properties of the molecules to how it makes it effective at its job (link structure to function)State how glycogen contains α-glucose which is used in respiration, so it can be broken down by enzymes.Glycogen's long chains make it insoluble so it does not affect water potential Glycogen is compact so there is potential to store a large amount of energy in small volumeGlycogen is highly branched for a greater surface area meaning glucose can be removed quicklyState the feature of animal’s lifestyle that mean they require rapid energy/ATP release. For example, animals have higher metabolic rates than plants.

How do you write the 'perfect' essay?

The concept of the 'perfect' essay is one which I believe every English enthusiast seeks to find yet not even the greatest writer, in my opinion, has achieved this. However, it is essential to recognise that this is a benefit as it highlights the dynamic nature of English; two students could create completely different responses to the same text with both being equally commendable. I realise that this answer is often frustrating for students seeking to pass exams and therefore I have set out to create a framework which can encompass all your excellent ideas; think of it as a toolkit which you can utilise in all essay-based tasks. Firstly, writing a concise clear and 'punchy' introduction is the key to grasp your readers/markers attention and illustrate your knowledge and writing abilities. An introduction requires two simple steps: state what you are explaining and list how/ what points you will use to illustrate this. Remember that precise and to the point is sometimes the most effective way of communicating. After this, my advice would be to take each point, one by one, and write a paragraph using the trusted 'PEAL' method. Step one is to make your point e.g. Iago deploys racist language and stereotypes to alarm Brabantio in Othello. Your point should state what you are arguing in one simple, clear sentence. Next, you need to use some evidence i.e. a quote in the text to strengthen your argument and validate your point ('an old black ram is tupping your white ewe'). The 'A' in PEAL stands for analysis and this is the moment for you to shine- this is where you show your understanding of the quotation and the author's intentions e.g. by employing animalistic imagery, Iago is able to tap into the racial concerns held in this era that other races were seen as inferior and un-humane, subsequently causing Desdemona's father to detest Othello, seeking to end the marriage (this would be more developed in a longer essay). The last step is to link this idea back to your original point showing how it is relevant to your argument- this can be a single sentence and is used to simply reiterate your point making it stronger and forcing the reader to understand your workings and logic. Repeat three/four times and this is the main body of your text complete! Finally, a conclusion is required to sum up what you have argument giving a brief overview of your points and the overall notion/idea/consensus that you have reached. Conclusions should never introduce new ideas but simply reinforce what you have stated and sum up the essay nicely. Essay writing takes time and practice and is not always simple but think of this as a toolkit or a recipe that will help!

What if I don't understand the unseen poem?

Good question, this has happened to us all! First of all, don't panic. Take time to read through the poem carefully a few times over. Ask yourself the following questions:1) Who is the speaker? (not the same as the poet, remember to separate them)2) How is the poem structured? (think about whether the stanzas or long or short or a mixture, whether there's a rhyme scheme etc. If there doesn't seem to be any sort of structure- that's a really interesting point! What effect does this have?)3) Are there any poetic devices I can pick up on? (look for emotive language, alliteration, metaphor etc)4) Does the poem develop or change from beginning to end?Choose a few of these points that you think you could talk about and highlight a quotation you could use for each of them. Think about what effect the point you've chosen has on the tone/feel of the poem. Write about why the poet may have chosen that, and think of a couple of different interpretations if you can. It doesn't matter if you're right or not, just show the examiner that you can reflect on it.

How do I choose which medical schools to apply to?

Choosing which four medical schools to apply to can seem like an impossible decision! Don't worry - there are lots of ways to narrow it down. There are thirty three medical schools in the UK and each one offers a slightly different experience.
I recommend you start by looking at two broad areas as follows:
What do I want from medical school?You need to think about factors personal to you. These might include considering how far away from home you are willing to be and how big a city you'd like to live in. Another important factor is what sort of teaching you'd like. Do you prefer lectures or is small group teaching better for you?
The next thing to think about is:What does the medical school want from me? Each medical school has slightly different entrance criteria. These include your A-level grades, certain entrance exams (e.g. the UKCAT) and your personal statement. Something you might want to start looking at is how many sciences you are currently studying. Many medical schools are fine with two sciences but a few require three. By checking these things before applying you can give yourself the best shot at getting an interview.
If you start with these two basic questions you can quickly narrow down to a shortlist of places to look at further!

Why does glucose pass into the kidney but red blood cells and protein do not?

Each kidney contains 1000s of nephrons and this is where a process called ultrafiltration occurs. Blood from the renal artery flows through the glomerulus at high pressure. The glomerulus is a bundle of capillaries at the start of the nephron surrounded by a double membrane called the Bowman's capsule. Small molecules such as glucose, urea, water and ions are able to pass through the capsule membrane and are squeezed out of the blood into the Bowman's capsule space. However, big molecules such as red blood cells and protein are not able to pass through the capsule membrane and so stay in the blood and do not enter the capsule space.
