    How could YOU, the cleverest person in this world mess up on the square question. The answer was 56cm, didn't you get that?

    how did they let you take it a year early lol?
    Everyone did the core exam in year ten, we're one of the few schools who attempt it!

    Glad we did, because I got full UMS which means I around 129/200 UMS already (if I dock one UMS from coursework) with the last exam being /70.

    it took our school the whole of year 10 and half of year 11 to do the 2 controlled assessments, we had 3 or 4 months to learn the content and i didn't bother revising cus i felt like all hope was lost i hope it all goes well though

    i found it ok too, i felt like it wasn't really geography more like opinions don't you think? like most questions you couldn't have revised for and had to rely on your onthespot thinking skills. it's risky tbh but i hope i did ok
    Yeah that's exactly how I felt! It seems we spent the past two years learning stuff which really wasn't necessary considering how much the exam relied on common sense. Kinda why I'm a bit apprehensive about how I did. Hope all goes well though, good luck!

    Anybody else going to stay up to view grade boundaries? I know I probably shouldn't because they'll just make me feel worse but I don't think I've got the self-control not to look at them!

    Well ours can't be easy if the full UMS boundary is like 75/90, people fail it miserably.
