    From what I've heard, seems like most people will be cramming the weekend before! Lets hope they're nice to us with the questions and give us really easy ones?

    It went pretty well I think I did it on lunar features (aided) and the shadow stick readings (unaided). What about you?
    Me too bro, high-five! The stick thing was so annoying though haha xD

    There are some on the Edexcel website.. I've only done one but my teacher said she'd post some papers for us online I agree that it's hard though.. I got like 60% in the mock (I didn't revise too much though to be fair..)

    I think you got to be more specific than that what specific mark did you get? And what grade are you aiming for overall?
    I haven't got my results back yet but the others on this thread have
