    Probably not as there already files in the low 300,000s on the website.
    Don't agree about it being hacking but I agree about it being not advised, may as well just wait at this point.
    Can I see your python code? How do you do this.

    Here's mine i'm currently running. Install python from python.org. Open IDLE. Click ctrl-n to open a doc to type in. Enter "pip install requests" in your command prompt (see here: http://docs.python-requests.org/en/master/user/install/) - there are other modules that'll work but I used this one for this code. Enter the code into the new doc you opened, save and run. It should open in the IDLE printing 404 and the number tested until it works. Obviously adjust the bounds as appropriate. The lines after "while" should all be indented.

    import requests

    x = 246349
    s = 404

    while x < 300000 and s == 404:
    p = "http://www.admissionstestingservice.org/images/" + str(x) + "-step-2016-explanation-of-results.pdf"
    r = requests.head(p)
    s = r.status_code
    x += 1
    print(s,x)

    I'm doing this backwards (from 300000 down) right now, but I have a foreboding feeling that they're gonna block my IP address soon....

    I do not recommend buying retail laptops, they are overpriced and most importantly you cannot upgrade the components after 1-2 years when you need it. You can go for barebone machines and DIY the rest, usually the GPU/CPU is fixed for low end models, but I am sure you can change them for some high end machines.
    *shrugs* if you buy a decent laptop then you don't need to replace anything till 3/4 years, when you should be getting a new laptop anyway. I built my own PC, I can upgrade that if I need need cutting edge stuff, which I most likely don't.

    Well I said that based on my experience with 4K gaming with 60Hz and max settings, and I cannot run new games without top graphic card, e.g. GTX 1080 can barely run Battlefield 1 at 4K around 40Hz, which is unsatisfactory.

    Yeah, but that's niche, most people don't play 4K gaming with 60Hz and max settings...

    90 and 82 must be very close to II,III (as it's usually) and considering that you had no markscheme , you'll probably get more than you predicted. I'm pretty sure you'll get 1,S and even 1,1 would be very appealling in summer pool so you'll just study in another college unless a U3 dude takes your place
