    Yo are not the only one! I found those papers difficult too. My whole class found the SCLY4 paper difficult too, and everyone was complaining about how hard it was on the Sociology thread and on a Twitter, so there's some consensus between the students showing that everyone across the country found it hard. I saw a post from this girl on Twitter who posted an email from her teacher, and that teacher said that the paper was unfair and the most difficult paper they have seen and she was talking to other teachers from different schools and they said the same. I'm sure you've seen the petition for lowering grade boundaries, right? Although it may be funny, it shows that people found it hard and even a teacher retweeted the post on lowering grade boundaries. SCLY3 was a dream and I think I can get near full marks. I thought as that paper was easy, the the next one will be hard but I had know Idea it would be that hard! It was ridiculous because the put topics that were literally less than a page of Information after I worked hard all year studying everything and getting full marks for that to come up!

    Well for Psychology, I have no comments. Apparently they copied the same question for gender from last year? I didn't do those sections but did Aggression, intelligence and a Eating Behaviours and found it 'ok'. PSYA4 was okay, but it was research methods that I didn't like.

    I hope the grade boundaries are low.
    Well in a way I am glad everyone found it hard since I guess there will be more of a chance of lower grade boundaries (let's hope!!) but yeah it was definitely unexpected and incredibly unfair. My teacher gave predictions for sociology and he said it was something like gender and crime, ethnicity and crime and something else (I'm ready forgetting literally everything!) and he only told us a week prior to the exam that postmodernism could be a 33 marker! But regardless, none of his predictions came up and those were the ones I really revised for. 😒
    I didn't realise there was a petition!! I never looked on Twitter after I was afraid that everyone was gonna find it easy and then I would be panicking
    all summer. I'll sign the petition immediately if it still means anything (are the grade boundaries set in stone now?)

    Yeah with psychology I've resorted to just hope now. Literally no idea what the grade boundaries could be like. I didn't revise for unit 3 because I had a media exam that same day and I literally knew nothing so I was panicking more about that.and yeah gender did come up again the same as last year I think but then again I've literally forgotten all the questions for all of my exams now. I did gender, aggression and relationships (relationships was so utterly boring) Unit 4 wasn't great but I need a B in psychology to get into my uni so fingers crossed!

    Good luck with your results! And let's hope the grade boundaries are low and nice!! I did one year a levels so psychology AS wasn't that hard this year (thank god) but I had a feeling that the A2s would be horrific. 😒

    I think universities get our results on Sunday, though they might not look at them until Monday.

    UCAS got them today, they are matching them to our applications and Sunday they send our results to the unis. So as I said a few days ago the unstoppable ball is now moving and our futures are fixed.
    Oh gosh no! :rofl: I hope they don't see mine and just skim over it! :rofl: Oh no don't tell me that! I did really badly in one of my exams :/ I'm not too worried this year though, probably because I've told myself that it's not the end of the world Good luck with yours! I hope you get what you need!

    I hope that there are many happy students on results day

    I feel like all my hard work will be wasted, as these AS exams don't count towards anything at least they'll give me an indication of what to improve on next year!!
