    Paper 2 Bio was easy I agree, But for paper 4 I am angry at cie for including such weird questions! I revised for the whole syllabus, and only like 40 percent came up. But nevermind
    How are you guys preparing for chemistry?
    Paper 2 was easy I found, but paper 4 was definitely harder. From looking at the past papers I'd done before the exam, it appears that the grade thresholds are usually quite low for those papers, almost as if they don't expect you to answer every question. I've only done a few past paper 4s, does any one else agree?

    I'm just going to do past papers and some tests and then go back and revise for the questions I got wrong, what about you guys?

    Paper 2 had everything I revised, but paper 4 was awful. Looking at previous past papers, I reckon it will be around 30/80 for an A and 26/80 for a B

    Was anyone else taught the old syllabus? I used more geography knowledge in that paper than I did biology..
