That exam was so strange.. The E question I was like *derp* also the one about preservatives and the last question. I read the time wrong in that exam I thought I had 20 minutes left so I started rushing through the paper super fast to find that I had 45 minutes *Face palm* but I wrote so much bull hope fully I gained sum marks I really need an A !

For the modified starch question I put about people who are coeliacs and so therefore it'd be gluten free flour etc within products so they'd be able to consume it? idk lmao.
Oh I thought that question was about pre-gelatinised sauces like cup a soup and angel delight?

I honestly don't think I did great.
When it asked for a plan I did a flow chart
It doesn't looks too good for me.
Don't worry, i think a flowchart would be marked as correct, its only a different format to a table, as long as you have the method, time, temp, health and safety and quality control checks it s fine !
I thought this exam was quite ridiculous as there wasn't much knowledge in it at all, it was more just common sense questions about food which I lack in *sigh*
The really complicated and sophisticated things I revised for really hard didn't come up at all.
The test was too easy that it made it hard
I put that the 400g E meant Estimated weight, but I think it might have been European Standards.
I think the standard of the exam was harder than last years, this was my resit from last year
But last year I did no revision at all and came out with a B and was made to resit
I got an A* in the coursework so Im hoping to get a high A or A* to be able to get an A* overall.
I think the grade boundaries might be lowered this year because alot of teachers complained about them being so high
About the cultural and religious views.... wtf how much can you say about Halal meats and pork being sacred. I actually put something about how in China they eat dog, so manufacturers cannot use certain ingredients that are popular in some cultures as if dog was served in England people would be outraged. Im funny

Probably! I'll be disappointed if I get less than in the mock. Have you got your internal controlled assessment marks yet? My school won't give them to us incase they change lots
Yes we did , i got 88/90, but quite a few got 90/90 looks like high grade boundaries coming up!
