    The graph paper I used earlier on was actual print outs but the paper had no indication of where the numbers should have been eg. a mark at every 10th box. Then after that homework, I went on to a geography which had the exact same graph paper... I felt like jumping off a cliff today...
    Oh god, that's annoying. I hate having to count - or when the scale are messed up like 0.4 per square...

    I remember having a histogram question and it was like... I can't work out where the bars are. The lines all look the same thickness - it looks like a page of graph paper tbh... :confused:Thank god it was a past paper and not the real thing. Phew.

    can I just ask, you know if I have finished my mock exams, can I ask my teachers for the recent papers? Just wondering...
    I have the june maths paper in my locker. Our teacher even emailed the mark scheme to us...
    And some people in our year are sitting it as the mock (I took mine early) - :/ the trust is unreal.

    So yeah, why not? It's going to be of more use to you if you have it!

    You can; in fact, the business department at my school has basically given us e-access to a LOT of past papers (save for the 2014 ones) and mark schemes for us to use.

    Is anyone here still undecided about their A Level options? I'm panicking so bad because I don't know what to do and all of my friends know exactly what they're doing
    Yes yes yes! I have narrowed it down to six or seven subjects and I want to take them all I thought I was sure but now I'm not sure and I'm panicking that I'll take something I regret... My parents are really bigging it up like 'THIS IS A LIFE CHANGING DECISION' :eek:

    Haha, you're the opposite of me! I've chosen three and I don't know what to choose for my last option because I'm afraid I'm going to regret whatever I take what are your six options?

    I want to do Chemical Engineering... SO you could probably obtain a apprenticeship or if you going to University try checking their requirements because that's what I did. Also try checking Colleges where you live that are specialised in Business.

    Agh, absolutely ridiculous - my school had our history mock (it was absolutely evil) yesterday and today I found out that certain people within my own class cheated and had looked at both papers prior to it beginning and, evidently, had time to plan out their answers as they finished a whole twenty-something minutes before everyone else >_<

    Consequently, I'm stuck in a dilemma in regards to whether or not I should actually tell my teacher (as we were all made to sign forms declaring our "academic honesty" at the beginning of the year). What should I do?

    Are you aqa? In that case the test was on the internet and personally I wouldn't class it as cheating when the teachers cba to find another test.

    Nah, edexcel. And I've scoured my school's database of past papers, edexcel's history page and the-like, but I've come across nothing vaguely similar to the one we got.

    Ahh, that's what happened with us and loads of people ended up with A*. But anyway I can't really comment on your dilemma but personally I wouldn't snake as it would just complicate things. Hope you figure it out though

    I think mention it to your head of year or head of department, and say you want it to be confidential. It's not fair if they all do better than you because they already knew what was going to come up. On the other hand, if people who don't usually do well get amazing results, I'm sure your teacher would notice. Besides, they're the ones with the guilty conscience and they won't be giving themselves a realistic idea of how they would do in the real thing.

    Anyway, it's up to you, hope this helps!!
