    I got 87 (A) on F585 in January, it is a hard exam, no doubt about it. Mainly because of the ******* stimulus material, but even then this can help narrow it down as all questions were closely linked to the content, you need to prioritise your revision on the main themes in the stimulus material and make sure you are familiar with the important concepts presented but also to form constructive arguments for and against for the "comment" and "Discuss" questions, because if you don't score well on those then you will not do well, as they are worth 2/3 of the paper. My school ordered my paper back, and for those questions i got 7/10, 9/10, and 18/20. The commentary provided by the examiner was also interesting because indicated that all of my answers for those three questions, especially the 20 marker were written entirely in an applied sense. So i guess constantly applying your knowledge for the big marks helps to. Good luck to all!
