    We won\t because they always increase no matter what and secondly, the paper wasn't even that hard, sorry
    It's not about how hard the paper itself was. If a large % of the country found the test hard (as shown with low marks) the grade boundaries get lowered.

    Hi hamzah its suhayb

    The exam wasnt hard, all the 'random' questions were common sense. Of course an independant company is one thats not affiliated to the drug company, how could you not get that?

    Since half the spec didnt come up, isnt that a good thing? It made the paper super easy.

    Everyone's just dumb.

    The grade boundaries will be low if everyone did badly. But i suspect like every year, there will be a huge variation in results. We shall see, nothing that petition can do anyway.
    From what i remember anyway, GCSE sciences had such stupidly low grade boundaries in the first place it was hard for you to get below a C if you revised enough.

    Plot twist: I had no problem with the independent company question and did get that answer

    Personally I would have much rather preferred more traditional questions covering more the spec like every paper since 2012 had because I'd memorized perfect mark scheme answers for pretty much every topic and process.
