    Now I'm most likely not the only one really pissed off about OCR changing the exam, so we don't do F211 or F212 / F321 or F322 we just do depth and breadth.

    Inb4 10a* genius' stroll in and say no change and I dont work hard enough blah, blah, blah. I'm just angry because the old methods and exams were perfect. I scored good grades in them. I work hard and I probably will still come out with mediocre grades due to the new exams. I feel as if we have been an unlucky year.

    If I took the old exams this year I reckon I could get good grades, as in close to all A's but I guess not.

    **** you OCR

    Every exam board has changed their specifications for sciences. We're all in the same situation, dw!

    Yeah ikr , OCR changed everything completely with multiple choice questions that are only 1 mark but need like 3 things to do to get them right :unimpressed:
