Anyone do option topic Human Story? That was way easier than expected. Other exams from past years full on asked for specifics on Homo genus and primates and whatnot. The 7 marker was a breeze.

i spoke about how evolution is a process of gradual change due to certain environmental pressures and spoke about how isolation can facilitate different adaptations ie pentadactyl limb therefore creating divergent evolution blah blah im still fuming i said convergent

Dw I didn't but I pretty much explained divergent evolution and even gave the Darwin finches example. Must've slipped my mind but it was only like a four marker I think and as long as you had lots of other terminology and stuff.

Nah I don't think they'd penalise you. It's a simple mistake. I've been reading top responses from past papers as revision yesterday and a lot of them had wrong terminology and stuff. It's up to the marker though but I reckon you'll be right.
