    No I'm doing Mei maths and ocr bio! I think they're at the same times as yours though, it's literally crazy timing! I wish some were next week instead. How are you finding bio? I've kind of only just started revising it! 😬

    Ah yeah i think theyre on the same days....and i revised biotech stuff a few weeks ago...but gonna have to learn literally everything else tomorrow...should be a fun day!

    At least the essay part doesnt have to be just unit 5...i resat unit 2 so i think that will help with essay/synoptic stuff...but i find biology has so many hsw questions that its the easiest to blag

    There might not be with your exam board...with ours its a 25 marker....but you get an option of 2 topics to write it on....to be honest its the easiest part

    The essay is worth 25% of the paper, so 25 marks + it depends what you consider big but we've been recommended to write 4 sides + spend around 35-40mins of the 2hrs 15 on it.

    Well just gone rough unofficial mark scheme and did way worse than I thought for c3....messed up the first question by inexplicably multiplying the top and bottom of he bracket!?!??!

    That's five marks gone ....probably got 60/75... Won't even be an A

    Spent too much time revising the more difficult questions and then slipped up on the simple stuff....second uni choice it is then...damn it
    60/75 is 80%, I don't know what exam you're doing but that's almost definitely an A, maybe an A*, unless it was a ridiculously easy exam.

    We don't have an essay section in OCR bio :P that's the only relief they give us because otherwise it's an awful paper and it's worth 150 ums...

    Did a past paper for chemistry, I always lose some marks in fuel cell questions, I just don't put the right words or construct a wrong equation for one electrode I quickly improve on this and do more practice for unstructured titration questions.
