    Hey Guys,

    Have you heard what's been going on about the biology AQA exam ? People have been complaining on LBC.
    Yeah I have!! I hope it doesn't happen for mine next week

    That's good and it depends how other people did as well, but hopefully you got really high marks so high grade boundaries aren't a worry
    That's very true we will have to play the waiting game from now on

    Indeed we will...it's killing me not being able to look at mark schemes immediately after walking out of the exam hall like I did for my mocks though!! It's going to be so hard waiting until the end of August!

    Your science exams are quite late...you're lucky! Although the one I sat yesterday wasn't at all that bad unlike what lots of people are saying. I think people just want the popularity tbh (for the OCR exam) as if you revised it really wasn't that hard...

    Sort of glad we don't do AQA now!

    Hello, there! I'm also doing OCR Gateway B for my Core Science, I have my Unit 1 on the 25th May and I'm very desperate for that A* and I know I can trust you. My Unit 2 is arriving in 10th June. I also need help on Section D parts too. You don't helping me, right? It's okay, if you don't want to. Thanks

    Unrelated questions. Something business related and it asked what the favourite type of alcohol for a 15 year old would be.

    Yeah same - and I suppose it is good but also annoying that I have the sciences (especially biology) at times when I have 5/6 exams a week. Although Physics is the very last exam so I have plenty of time to revise it which is good so I should count my blessings

    Of course I will help you - what is it specifically you don't understand?

    No worries. Thanks. I've got a feeling this is going to happen again in a few of the other exams.

    I have heard about it and saw the petition. Apparently it was mostly about applying your knowledge and something. Is there something else I'm missing?

    That's exactly what I told my father. However, there are many people complaining so I don't really know.

    I can't believe I've askedy completed 7 exams in 3 days! Still got 15 to go! Today was mainly resting as I was tired from English booster and the exams I have today.
    I managed to do:
    - shape and space past paper 44/50
    - poetry comparisons- looked at two poems
    - and managed to clean my room which was full of past papers! (I know, this isn't actually something)

    Going to read AAM before I sleep for English lit

    I know this is not directed at me but I think I can help. I did the exam last year and got an A*. What I would advice you to do is do lots of past papers. You might have already done it but there are similarities between past papers. For instance, from what I remember, B2 you have to apply your knowledge about adaptions and this usually comes up. And for Section D, i would advice you to learn how to calculate percentage change and do again lots of questions on it.
    Good luck.

    AAAAAA
    I set an alarm to wake up at 4:30 (I'm crazy, I know) because I still hadn't revised C3 at all and my exam is in the morning (so so annoying) so I had to revise for it
    IT DIDNT GO OFF
    I woke up at 6:10 instead which meant I didn't have time to revise it at all!!!
    Instead I just decided to hope that I remembered it from being taught and attempted the 2015 paper (leaving out 6 markers to save time) and got 35/60 which isn't bad considering I didn't even answer 18 marks worth, but it was a very simple paper with loads of tick box questions so I don't think ours will be quite as nice

    Just gonna have to cram the spec on the bus instead now
