    I mean it is hard to tell The layout of the paper ( Multiple Choice ) I felt was completely different then the last 4-5 years. Some questions were asked weirdly. So not too sure but hopefully they will !

    For the second set of essays I had time so I wrote an essay on both the kidney and the liver (separate essays). This was because I couldn't decide which one I was going to be worse at, as both were pretty poor if I'm honest....
    Do you think i'll be penalized for this?

    I found the exam so much harder than I expected it would be! Was estimated an A after getting an A in both my prelims.... but I'm not so sure my final result will be the same

    They'll only take the mark from one essay, im guessing it'll be the one with the lowest mark.

    They mark both and use the highest mark. They cant mark you down for right answers and attempting the other essay. If anything youve done more work than most they cant penalise you for it.
