    Wait what!? err 60 out of 150!? woah.. hmm I need 90% I think...
    Does it say how much for an A*? I always get confused in terms of grade boundaries of individual exams :s

    In last paper i had a D and I was about 56 marks short of an A ... :s I hope I get them

    EDITo how many raw marks do I need to lose to get 136 UMS ?

    I got 74/90 the first time as well Just like you I needed to resit both F214 and F215 to get an A*. What did you get in F215 the first time around? I got 115/150 the first time around (I unfortunately only had one day to revise for F215 because I had nine exam that week )

    Thank you very much. I hope you get the UMS that you were aiming for (preferably 150/150.)

    I now have 81/90 in f214 (out of the five papers I did that's the only grade that I know so far.)
    I need to get 135/150 in f215 to get an A, and 147/150 to get an A*. I just hope I did get at least 71/100 (in terms of raw marks.) :/

    Same mark as me....I also hate this module- it cost me my place at university last year when I only needed 108. I found it really gutting that it is 72% for full UMS but we get 59% and end up with a B.

    The paper was hard. I was quite surprie when I heard people saying that it was 'easier than June's F215'. I was like :eek2::eek3:

    Just out of pure curiousity, how much did everybody revise for this? Did you guys do any past paper/specimen papers/F215 related Bio quetion etc.?
