Why bother with a post grad? Are they even worth it? Have your say! 26-10-2016

    So just finished the paper today, I'm sure many of you have too. Found it all ok apart from the last quesyyon and the 15 bullet points which weren't all that easy to find the last one of two.

    My question is that I'm doing Coursework + The Extended Paper to create 100% of the marks. I've been told no coursework were changed at moderation and I think my mark was 49/50 mark. Considering this, what would I need to get in the is recent paper out of 50 to get an A* overall? I can't find a helpful grade boundary for this particular set up of modules anywhere! Hope everyone found it ok!

    Yeah the 15 points were hard

    I had to resort to putting "GM Plants and radiation coming from phones does not cause" blah blah blah as my 15th point.

    Anybody come up with a predicted mark scheme list yet?
