    Really? I didnt sitvthe exam but looking at it it seemed straightforward. M2 was harder
    I didn't find it hard but it was on the same bad day as fp3 I had. I couldn't even add numbers correctly plus a multitude of other really stupid silly idiotic mistakes argh just praying for low grade boundaries. Exams went much better last year for me.

    A lot of people messed up the 8 marker, the 4 mark circle question threw a lot of people and many simply didnt know to double diffrentiate or simultaneous equation for the 10 marks . Also there was 15 marks of algebra as compared to 5 last year and as soon as that happens boundaries tend to dive down - im very certain the boundaries will drop although i dont know how much. The S2 poll showed a lot of people finding it really tough. But maybe itll stay sky high - who knows .

    I got 64 on last years and got probably 52 on this years s2. Eek.

    Over 90% for an A? Has that ever happened before?

    C4 is the only one likely to be anywhere near that high - and even that is unlikely considering its a core module EVERYONE takes.

    For people who done Edexcel A2 Chem & Bio what were your thoughts on the papers?
    Chemistry unit 4 killed me but unit 5 revived me. Made far too many silly mistakes on unit 4 to get an A*, also thought it was quite a bit harder than other years. Unit 5 was much better, not to say it was that easy though.
    What do you think the grade boundaries will be? They vary so much

    Yeah I found Unit 4 Chem quite challenging had a lot of marks where you could trip up. However chemistry unit 5 was nice as most of the questions that came up had been covered in my class using similar methodology. It was my first year doing edx exams as i done OCR in AS so not really familiar with the GB but guessing Unit 4 will be below average and 5 above average? would be nice if A*'s in both were quite low aha

    This may be a weird question considering we haven't even got our results yet, but what happens with accommodation if you go through clearing? Let's say I miss my offers but get a clearing offer, will I end up with the rubbish accommodation that nobody who originally applied wanted? (I'm only saying that because my cousin went through clearing and this is exactly what happened to her!) I know accommodation is only a small factor in the long run, but I am just slightly worrying! I just know that I haven't met my offers because AQA French was a nightmare

    You have hit the nail on the head. Don't worry i could EASILY see is being 59-61 for an A. June 2014 paper was 61 for an A and that paper was easier than ours.

    Yup, looking back also its rare to have high grade boundaries for a june core 4 paper. The highest june core 4 paper since 2005 which EVERYONE TAKES has been june 2012 which was 63 for an A......and that paper was easier than ours. Then again last year was 62 and it was challenging. It is impossible to predict.....i remember last years piss easy C2 paper which was only 59 for an A!
