    1b was size affects the portability

    It was a tough paper, it really was. It, at times, had irrelevant Q's to the spec, so Edexcel should lower the grade boundary!

    I got 116/200 last year, in total; 4 from C.
    I need to get 125+/200 to secure a 'C' grade, IT can fxck off after.

    That was the most disputed question ever, it said something about "collaborative" so alot of people put wiki, some put forum (makes more sense) and some put blog. Idek what I put
    guessing it's going to be Forum... Blog is literally idk wrong i guess. WIKIs are good for collaboration but can be edited by anyone so...... i put forum because that can also be used for collaboration but no one can really damage the website.

    Is there a full list of all the answers?
