    I'm really nervous for it, i think its because wether i choose to do a level is if i can get A* or not on the 2016 paper
    If you don't get an A* you're not doing it for a level?

    Last year it was higher than normal and the people at my school who would usually get a C got D's! so i would say late 60's again but it depends on the complexity of the paper

    I actually thought the 2015 papers were alright as I had them for my mocks a while ago.Just a few questions were worded differently but I felt the difficulty wasn't as bad as people made it out to be. But eh, I guess it varies between people.

    I am planning to take:
    Maths
    Economics
    History
    Politics

    In the previous mock j did I was 7 marks off of an A and that was the November 2015 paper which was a weird paper in my opinion. I am scared as well I hopefully wanna know everything on the spec in time for the exam. What subjects are you taking?

    Yup, I'm in that exact position. A few people have told me to expect the exam to be really hard this year because it's the last one(before reforms). As well as this, the college I'm hoping to go to requires A in GCSE Maths to do Chemistry. At this point I'm reconsidering taking Maths at A-level
