    Is it true re marking will be harder this year?
    Yes. You can only get a remark by requesting a copy of your transcript and spotting a mistake, which is annoying as you won't be able to gain 1-5 points due to subjective marking :/

    Hi there, i'm looking to do architecture at University of Kent this year. What's the architecture paper you had to resit? Is it a end of year uni exam or a paper you have to do to get into uni?
    Hi, It was an AS level resit which I had to do because I failed it last year. The paper was on Roman architecture.

    Yeah but luckily I escaped that haha. They're bumping it to A*A*A or A*AA with 'sufficient marks in their test' or a 1 in STEP, honestly don't think i'd get in if they wanted the A*A* or that so phew

    I've said this before but what about subjects like Eng. Lit and Politics where the markschemes are very poor and pretty much subjective in itself.

    Same
    The 15 markers were horrible in both exams

    i did the liberalism essay. TBH i don't think it was that great. I will actually be okay with a C in Politics tbh.....thats how badly it went for me.
    There was one in each exam which I think I aced + the 45 mark questions were quite generous, but the other two 15 markers I chose... :nope: Did you do the feminism and/or sustainability 15 marker?

    What do you reckon the chemistry boundaries will be this year? Given the new course and breadth/depth style
    I'm A2 so I'm not sure about AS but I'd reckon grade boundaries will be average or low-ish since you didn't know what kind of questions to expect.
    A2 chemistry was quite easy compared to last year, and even on average, so that will be high
