    Could the grade boundaries for a B possibly be below 60/90 ?
    If so I will be so happy! I think A gonna be like 66/90 or something like that

    I lost way too many marks lol I feel like I wasted my time revising so much... but I hope it will be extremely beneficial in unit 5 next week (unit 4 knowledge).

    How was your physics paper ? mine was okay, but didn't revise... so not expecting much

    C3 on the other hand.... shocking :eek:

    I lost a few marks on every single question in section B & C
    I am giving myself 15 for section A
    Hope I get a high B lol

    & yup... I really screwed up in January quite badly, was so gutted because I got a low B. But after today, I am very very grateful that I got my B grade ... aha

    I think they might look into the C4 paper that will be given and possibly make it a more moderate paper it isn't already that is, since Edexcel have received a lot of criticism for the paper. I just gave up like half way through lol

    omg I did, when I was looking at the replies I thought I did the wrong exam paper, it seems edexcel gives international centers and uk centers separate papers!!!!DONT KNOW HOW WILL THE UMS BE CALCULATED...

    I think that paper is the hardest one ever..Lost 10 marks already, not even sure if I can get an A on it, suppose the boundary for A will be around 68/90?

    =/ Okay I know I'm being biased but I seriously think that... If you've done the international papers, the UK ones are a piece of cake. No offense. Our exercise sources are all past year papers from the UK Version!!! Where can I get the international ones????!!!! Kinda pissed off.

    The first subjective question is like crap. == They're coming out with new ways of asking the questions. Arh well...
    I hope they will be easy on us with the grades... I totally panicked in the first Kc, S total, S surrounding and crap. Didn't know where the values are from until they took my paper away.==

    The papers after that were disheartening as well. T.T

    That question was a meanie, you had to reason through the concept of optical activity.

    The sour milk was not optically active; therefore, it must have had a mixture of both optical isomers; hence, it was a racemic mixture. The opposite was true for the lactic acid found in the body.

    I put that in the end. However I'm sure I used the term racemic in about five questions.
