    Plus myself and 6 others in my year alone ... so I don't have a clue where he's got that figure from.

    Also regarding to raw marks, a girl in my class dropped 5 also, don't know if she got a letter congratulating her for this though. Hmm.

    Hello well done for get 140 ums! Only 6 out of 23000 students that took that exqam got 140 ums - so us and 4 others. If anyone else claims this, they're lying :P and sorry, you didn't get the highest raw mark - I got a letter from Dave Redfern one of the chief examiners from AQA saying that I got 115/120 on that paper you can always ask your teacher to logn to eAQA to find out your raw mark if you don't know but it don't matter, we're still amazing
    How do you know this?! I know for a fact that at least 3 people in my class got full UMS on that paper....
    Also, get off your high horse please

    I got 140/140 at AS too. As much as I'd love to think only 6 people got that, I'm pretty sure that's not how UMS works!

    This actually makes me kind of happy. Don't get me wrong, to start with I thought it was a pretty nice idea, but by exam time I was so sick of reading about it that ****ing bridge I hoped it would collapse.

    From our school alone 6 people got 140 UMS,thats definitely wrong. I doubt you got 115/120 raw as well, thats just impossible on GEOG1, considering that 84/120 gave you 140 UMS. Might be true though, provide some evidence

    Is this the only topic on 4B? Exam is next tuesday, how is everyone feeling?

    My school has done NO prep with us as its a retake, so all I've got is the zigzag booklet and whatever I can find online. If anyone has any info that will help I will appreciate it so much, really need to boost my January grade up a few marks. Everyone says that if you can do the zigzag booklet then you're fine for the exam but I did that plus more for January and still only got a C.

    What's the zigzag booklet?

    This is my first time doing the exam and we've hardly done any prep for it!

    Its a booklet that supplements the course, with questions etc in it. They're bought by your school but I don't think they have any connection to AQA itself. They're not essential but useful.

    Not feeling at all confident, has the zig zag book been useful?

    It has as its suggested further reading but the general questions in it are quite obvious. It also asks to do a line graph, climate graph and pie chart for the data which is quite good. Overall yes but its a basic start to the revision rather than anything in detail sadly!

    I'm retaking too - if you still want the ZigZag booklet and the other stuff, PM me and I'll send you the link.

    Btw, this is January's forum so most people are discussing Tuesday's exam here: http://www.thestudentroom.co.uk/show....php?t=1961542
