A section has been added to this page which is a subjective view of recent events. It is not clear how this can be a valid encyclopedia entry until this complex issue is resolved. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Shrewsrus (talkcontribs) 20:27, 30 January 2010 (UTC)

A page solely devoted to this particular issue of the BIOL4 paper was deleted. This has been circumvented by putting it in as a section of a different page. The content is subjective and not relevant for an encyclopedia. Aspects also lack references. Those who constantly revert the edits made are doing so without any justification and characterising my edits as vandalism despite the fact each one has been justified and attempts made to talk to the users involved via their own talk pages. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Shrewsagain (talkcontribs) 16:13, 23 May 2010 (UTC)

I have removed the section, as it was about a very minor event and not very noteworthy. If someone has any good arguments as to why it should be included, you can revert. The Mysterious Gamer 16:01, 24 May 2010 (UTC) —Preceding unsigned comment added by The Mysterious Gamer (talkcontribs)

Fair use rationale for Image:AQA Logo.png[edit]

Nuvola apps important.svg

Image:AQA Logo.png is being used on this article. I notice the image page specifies that the image is being used under fair use but there is no explanation or rationale as to why its use in this Wikipedia article constitutes fair use. In addition to the boilerplate fair use template, you must also write out on the image description page a specific explanation or rationale for why using this image in each article is consistent with fair use.

Please go to the image description page and edit it to include a fair use rationale. Using one of the templates at Wikipedia:Fair use rationale guideline is an easy way to insure that your image is in compliance with Wikipedia policy, but remember that you must complete the template. Do not simply insert a blank template on an image page.

If there is other fair use media, consider checking that you have specified the fair use rationale on the other images used on this page. Note that any fair use images lacking such an explanation can be deleted one week after being tagged, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you.

Semi-protected edit request on 17 June 2016[edit]

Remove '2016 GCSE Biology Paper Controversy' paragraph. This has been input by a student and is factually incorrect. The article it uses as its reference points also only refers to student comments but nothing factual, only opinion. (talk) 08:27, 17 June 2016 (UTC)

2016 GCSE Biology Paper Controversy[edit]

The section of the page relating to a GCSE Biology Paper seems unappropriate for an Encyclopedia. I question if the addition of the controversy was just out of spite, however it does still remain valid and Edexcel has a much more appropriate range of Controversies rather than one specific event. --Nicnote (talk) 20:23, 20 July 2016 (UTC)

In one of the 2016 General Certificate of Secondary Education (GCSE) biology exams, a question relating to independent business was on the exam, which led to frustration among students who claimed that it had nothing to do with biology.[1] Despite this claim, GCSE students are expected to know the influence of bias on the results of an investigation, leading AQA to respond by saying "Exams aren’t meant to be easy and students are obviously going to tweet about that, but there was nothing wrong with this paper. We wish everyone the best of luck with the rest of their exams.".
