    It SOUNDS really low but the marking is so harsh that it isn't that low at all!
    I reckon it'll be about 39ish for a B, which is slightly higher than it was in January (or around that anyway) (I THINK)
    I thought this exam was harder personally but in general, I seem to be the only person to think that so it might be loads higher!
    Ah yeah, I think the boundaries for Jan 2012 were 39 for a B, so hopefully they won't move below 42 ish I'm thinking? Cos I think they'll go up cos 39 seems very low even though the boundaries seem to be really low for lit. I just hope I've got a B even though I know it's unlikely, cos I ran out of time and hardly wrote anything for the books, but I think there was more marks for the poetry side! Did you do Gatsby?
    Good luck anyway

    oo we did exactly the same questions! I came outta the exam and most people had done questions 1+3 so I got a bit worried thinking I picked the hard questions aha (unintentionally)
    Was Q5 about how the big companies will remain powerful for more than 20 years or something along those lines? The points for and against seemed like common sense which is why i picked it. Knowing me, i have probably misinterpreted the whole question and got like 10/40 haha.


    (Original post by garabacm)
    Question 2 and 5 sound familiar, I think I was those. Q2 was basically influences on organisational culture I think?


    Posted from TSR Mobile
    Yeah it was something like "are all highly profitable companies' cultures similar" or something along those lines i think.

    Lucky :awesome:

    (Original post by Etoile)
    Mine is 9 but it's ok because this means we can check track first
    Good point! But then we'll have a horrid few hours, maybe more when I'll either be frantic about which subjects I missed my offer in and not able to take next steps til I have more info; or anxious-and-trying-to-be-pretend I'm not about whether I came close to my predictions..
