    I liked that exam, but do expect high grade boundaries as I found all the 6-markers to be basically data-based? I mean they were some of the simplest 6-mark questions I've seen!
    The downsides to easy exams: higher grade boundaries. I'm probably going to say it's in the higher 40s for an A* (48ish).

    They were all data based, yeah. The only bit of actual knowledge was on the pollutants in the first question (though a lot of data is needed for that too) and a teeny tiny bit on the last one about LCA. Surprised there wasn't anything about fractional distillation.

    Yeah, not complaining though! What I liked about it though, was that it was (rather unlike Biology B1 B2 B3) mainly fact-based. That is, if you revised, you would get a good mark. Simple!
    Let's all hope for the same structure for all the other science papers!

    Yeah I actually enjoyed the paper 😂😹 big difference from the biology one. I got 1.56x10^6 for the last table question so hopefully I'll have done well. I did the 6 mark question about ecotrainers in the last 3 minutes so I'm not sure how that question went down😂
