    Remember they turned evil last year?



    I've had 2 exams so far and they've both been pretty fair.


    Thoughts?

    Hoping maths will be fair, most of my 5th year higher maths class was made up of resitting 6th year.

    Got my first next Thursday (higher English) but talking to the modern studies and economic students, it does seem to be somewhat chilled this year.
    Personally, I'm just terrified that they're waiting to crack out the hard stuff on physics and maths this year.

    I've only sat higher geography so far and I thought it was a pretty easy paper compared to other past papers! . Hopefully they keep it up for the rest of the exams!!

    Yeah we are- which is reallly annoying because none of the past papers have the right question at the end for us

    Last year, I think every level of the Maths papers were considered to be pretty nasty (SG right up to AH), as were a lot of the other subjects.

    Although, the difficulty of AH Physics doesn't seem to change much (unless you look at pre-2007 papers, ouch), let's hope they stick with this consistency of being consistent.....

    But for every other subject (in my case: Chemistry, Physics and Graphics), let's hope they're nice to us.....

    Good luck with the rest of your exams guys!

    True about maths especially sg, I remember the head of maths complain higher pupils couldn't do some of it.

    My teacher let us see the credit sg this year and I went dam! Can't do box plots embarrassing

    Oh I know, was meant to be terrible, but I think they lowered the boundaries a bit...
    Let's just hope they're as fair with everything else this year as they have been with the exams that have been done so far

    I hate the fact we used P&N prelim papers, in maths we where told the sqa does not endorse them as they are too hard, mind that I only got one question wrong in P&N 2003 (maths)
