    And then the 24 markers were worded a bit weirdly? Did anyone else find the same?
    Yeah I thought that. I expect with the one about factors effecting equality in roles and relationships they wanted to lure people into just talking about gender.

    They did the 'today' thing again; it wrecked me last year. Where I went on a rant about the medieval times of childhood and what not, but that doesn't score you marks.

    What was the question for roles and relationships? I thought it had 'to what extent' in the question, so I spoke about reasons why roles and relationships are more equal and why they aren't.

    Would this be right?

    How did everyone find the exam?
    I thought that it was ok, was kinda looking forward to a demography question?

    And then the 24 markers were worded a bit weirdly? Did anyone else find the same?
    I have mixed feelings about the exam. I mean I thought the questions were simple but worded weirdly, and as for the last 24 marker. wow, completely caught me off guard. I also don't think an hour is enough

    Is there a chance of still getting a high mark if you think you did pretty well in the paper but didn't finish one of the 24 markers? I started writing the last question way too late and didn't finish at all, I hardly got any of it done and I'm worried I'll end up with a D

    Yeah agreed.
    One hour is definitely not enough! Always get cramps in my hand from writing so quickly and continuously aha!

    I hope the grade boundaries will be lowered because nobody retaking the paper in my centre could even manage to finish the last 24 marker on family diversity and it seems others had the same issue

    I was so pleased with the topics that came up! however I do agree that the 24 markers were worded weirdly, it did take me a minute to sit there an actually figure out the right stuff to put into each essay...
