    B2 and c2 were easy but the grade boundaries are apparently going to go really highly
    26 to pass
    I beg that the grade boundaries are like this 26/60 for a C?!

    thats a good point. how did you think you did on the whole?
    I have no idea, I think I did bad but I don't think I got any wrong :L I always usually hate this paper and prefer the other, hoping that all hope of getting an A is not gone out of the window :L What about you?? How do you think you did??

    That question sounded very easy but It didnt really understand how the pathogens cause infections. I just said viruses and bacteria are pathogens. Viruses replicate them in the cells of the body etc. and then talked about bacteria causing cell damage, releasing toxins etc.
    Then I went on to talk about White blood cells: Engulfing/digesting, antibodies and antitoxins.
    I know I'm late but I wrote about pathogens producing harmful bodies and toxins, and viruses getting into cells, multiplying and bursting them.
    So far I've found biology and chemistry AQA IGCSE easy, IGCSE geography (both papers) comfortable but today's EdExcel PE was horrible.

    Subject: Spanish Reading and Listening
    Exam board: AQA
    Feeling:

    Reading was fine but listening there were times where I just had to guess and hope for the best.

    but that's from Unit 1 Bio, all about pathogens and toxins etc?
    agree about edexcel pe, it was absolutely disgusting.

    What course did you do? That was a question on AQA IGCSE which I did, and bacteria producing toxins etc was on my spec.

    Wasn't a nice question but my main points were that it is easily adaptable, you can do skills circuits or tailor it to any element of fitness, and it reduces monotony so players enjoy training. However in a small space it's hard to focus on CV fitness which is also essential for game sports.

    I did the same thing, but loads of people in my school did the same thing. I'm pretty sure it was written like 'what choices would a mother make in having an abortion?'- the language was really ambiguous. It was only like a 4 mark question though

    OCR Religious Studies Short Course was fine imo but I think we all did the exam wrong because our teacher hadn't prepared us well for it (e.g in the e question he told us to just write "Some Christians... Other Christians..." instead of specific denominations)

    Edexcel French I didn't revise for, found the listening moderate & the reading easier than expected

    AQA Biology, from the unofficial mark scheme for B2 it looks like I'm on an A or at least a B. Have no idea about B3 but that was kind of difficult.

    AQA Chemistry, from the unofficial mark scheme for C2 it looks like I've safely secured an A. C3 on the other hand was absolutely awful but I think a lot of people found that awful
