    Aww, why? :console:
    Eighty lines of Virgil, sixteen equations, a paper on the Hapsburgs :P

    All jokes aside, We only have forty-something school days until our study leave

    Am I the only one that thinks ICT coursework is easy? I'm struggling more with business 😫

    I find the coursework and theory pretty easy. But it's proper boring...

    It wasn't too bad, feel like I mucked up my method a bit though which I usually get all the marks in, it's paper 2's case study's that worry me! How was yours?

    Case studies can be pretty mean .

    One of our papers had a stupidly worded question, but other than that it went well. It was the highest mark I received out of all of them .

    I'm probably more excited that science coursework is over, so we can focus on revision now.

    Just to let you guys know - while you're all welcome to talk about how you felt your ISAs went or to ask for general advice, please be careful not to reveal specific topics/questions that may come up in the exams. This is to prevent other's gaining an unfair advantage over you and thus from possibly causing the grade boundaries to inflate :zomg:

    If you see any rule breaking posts, be sure to report them via the report function. :yy:

    Thanks.

    Maybe instead of trying to educate and control others you focus on improving the website? I'm sorry, but that post just makes the whole TSR team look like a bunch of people trying to play some kind of moral judges (same thing with not providing answers to questions in subject forums...) and it really puts me off going on to this site.

    We do, you clearly don't look carefully enough.

    Then feel free to leave, I'm hardly going to care :yy:
    If you don't care about me leaving, then why do you care about me cheating?

    You do realise that what I'm doing is giving - maybe with a little taste of humour - appropriate criticism on the site that you moderate? If anybody wants to get the answers then they can just open a new tab and type the same thing into google. What you guys are doing is giving a big disadvantage to TSR and making the forum look like this hehe, 'politically correct community', which is literally the opposite of the freedom that the internet is supposed to provide.

    Because they're completely different things.

    You do realise that what I'm doing is giving - maybe with a little taste of humour - appropriate criticism on the site that you moderate?
    We do, but not when it's presented in the disrespectful way you provided it in. My post gave you cancer? That wasn't funny. I know lots of close people who have cancer, so it hardly made me laugh.

    If anybody wants to get the answers then they can just open a new tab and type the same thing into google.
    Good for them, doesn't mean we're going to allow them to cheat through TSR though.

    What you guys are doing is giving a big disadvantage to TSR and making the forum look like this hehe, 'politically correct community',
    On the one hand, we have people complaining that we allow cheaters on this forum and on the other, we have people like you complaining that we don't allow people to cheat (although admittedly, you're the first person who's complained about us not allowing people to cheat). We can't please everyone.

    Most teachers on here are not impressed if we allow people to cheat on their exams (be it mocks, ISA's etc.) so I can't see how it's a 'big' disadvantage.

    which is literally the opposite of the freedom that the internet is supposed to provide.
    When you joined this site, you agreed to follow the rules on here. If you think that that's restricting your freedom or whatever, then it's your own fault for joining.

    Me too! What mark did you get on yours? We've done this one differently because it's bio so we have to grow plants, so I haven't sat paper two yet as we've got to let the seeds grow. One of my additional science isa's had an evil case study that made almost no sense -,-

    I got an A* (48, I think?), which I'm so happy with because I worked pretty hard .
    Good luck with your paper 2 . Are you on AQA? A lot of people seem to be for science.

    If you click the "Edit" button in the bottom right of your post, there should be an option to delete your message that comes up.
