    First of all, wishing everyone good luck for tomorrow, hopefully it will be okay

    How are you all revising for it? Also, after you've done the exam, how did you find it ?

    Interested to know everyone's thoughts on this!

    I've learnt the textbook quite well cuz my teachers is absolutely atrocious. And done past papers and familiarised myself with what they expect us to say for the repeating types of question like 5 markers for evolution and evaluations and immunisation etc

    How did everyone find it? I thought it was different to most practice papers but it wasn't particularly hard :P anyone going to do an unofficial mark scheme?

    this paper was different from the rest, but maybe because it was a touch difficult the grade boundaries might be lower. what did you get for the bar graph question?( about countries that are suffering from malnutrition)
