same! i had to write so fast, only to notice at the last minute that i forgot to do question one (just to draw the two bar charts) LOL, so i quickly did it phew
Aha, I was made by my teacher to do foundation and I really wish i did higher because I kinda felt as though they were mocking us for how easy it was I was stupid! I finished over 1/2 hour early!
the six mark questions really threw me as i wasn't expecting them
i felt really rushed for time so my case studies were terrible
everyone else i've spoken to felt the same really so i'm not too worried but they seriously need to make that exam longer... it is almost impossible to do it well in the time given!
but now i'm concerned that the theme 3 and data response will be equally hard!!
also, i was really confused about the 6 mark about the depression i didn't know what they wanted us to do so i didn't know whether to describe what a depression brings or explain why it brings these weather conditions so i just did both :/
The extra long mark questions were slightly unexpected but I finished the paper and feel really positive about the exam as a whole - more time would've been nice, but it wasn't *too* bad. I think the additional long-markers are where most people got freaked out but the majority of my school appear to have managed pretty well...
It's interesting, of the four exams I have sat, three have now had more long-mark questions than expected (this one, and Units 2&3 of AQA Biology). I wouldn't be surprised if this becomes something of a recurring theme.
I wonder how theme 3 is going to be and the decision making paper
Whatever happens I am just hoping we have plenty of time to answer the DME! Does anybody know whether the 2 hour time is given to complete Theme 3 and the DME or is it split as two separate papers (30 mins and 90 mins)?
