    This is true yet very surprising.

    Last year, only 213 candidates sat this exam!

    State your answer to the question in the first sentence. Then you need to justify it by saying why other options were not sufficient, you also need to analyse the advantages and disadvantages of your reason and then write a small conclusion

    I thought the exam went pretty well! I feel pretty confident about most of the questions
    Does anyone have any idea how many marks you need for an A*? Because I got 50/50 on multiple choice, but i didn't do to well on the coursework, 29/40 i think.. not sure how many that is out of 50. But yeah does anyone have any idea what percentage you need for an A* on the unit 3 exam? Cause I'm aiming for one overall
    For the multiple exam i got 44/50, and for the coursework i got 33/40
    Well last year 70/90 was A* for unit 3

    I really feel that the boundaries will go up a lot this year, maybe:
    A*- 75/90
    A- 65/90
    B- 55/90
    Not 100% sure but im guessing it will be something like that

    actually our teacher had said that for a 8 mark question we should include at least 5 points an if they ask us to evaluate, justify those points and come to a final decision.

    yeh based on the general percentage of 80% being A you needed to get at least 72/90 in the exam to get an overall A
