    Is TSR representative of the whole situation though? Here lots of people say SCLY4 was bad but for instance in my exam room nearly everyone was smiling in the exam room and cheered for the easy topics afterwards.

    It could be just our teacher though, she's pretty f'in cool.
    I didn't find SCLY4 too bad, in fact I was glad state crime and crime prevention came up because the topics were predicted for ages on the sociology thread anyway. (I mean I'm saying it was good now but I hope I get a decent mark :laugh:)

    A question for those of you who sat edexcel unit 4 econ. On q.4c on why the cedi has depreciated against the dollar, is it valid to say that slower econ growth in Ghana (point 1) and IMF tied restrictions from its bailout lowering future growth prospects and thus fdi (point 2) fine as 2 separate, valid points? The second point isn't on the mark scheme so am unsure if I'll get capped for 1 valid point.

    I thought multi choice was hard with very few rebanked questions - I suspect mean facility will be one or two marks lower and point biserial index lower also.
    I felt the main paper was quite good though, but misread the question and got 200s for the time constant - ah well, might get 1/3 for correct use of logs.

    I agree on 65/75 for the PHYA4 UMS cap.

    I think PHYA5 boundaries with astro will be a little lower than 66 however, max 65, possibly even 63-64. The main paper was fairly easy for me and I think I dropped around 3, although quite wordy, which will lower boundaries. Astro was a bit harder and I dropped around 7, but a nice six-marker! However, I couldn't do the mathsy three marker at the end using ISL for some strange reason and I got the brightest star wrong, so that's 6 marks gone and then probably one on the six marker.

    UCAS for sure, what if I see my results, cry because I didn't get in, but then get in anyway? Also means that if I don't get in, I can look at Clearing options asap

    I'm quite lucky as I get my results online. Will be refreshing ucas and results at the same time so hopefully will be able to check them both at the same time

    I like to discuss mine with friends even if they're not brilliant, but only if they're happy to do the same. Many people don't tell their friends though

    whats wierd though is the fact that some years the difference between grades could be 4 marks or 6 marks. could mean 65/75 may turn in to 54 for an a which is quite high
