    What did everyone think of Paper 2 this afternoon - I felt it, like all the Paper 1s, was surprisingly easy compared to what we've been told to expect.

    What did everyone think of Chemistry P2? I thought it was all ok except that one where two students got different results for the same experiment (5f).

    that exam was bull**** fam, missed out more than half the syllabus.

    all that revision for nothing!

    the paper 2 specimen q's were so much easier than the actual paper

    i lost so many marks. hopefully i did alreet in paper 1

    the fluorine question was fun doe

    what do u guys reckon will be gradeboundaries for a* in physics, chem and bio?

    based on our mock grades, I think it would be around 70% which is about an average of 65/90 on both papers

    so i think u can afford to loose about 25 marks

    That chem paper today was definitely the worst one yet :O Normally I find chem easiest and bio hardest but the bio paper 2 was much better than chem.

    that one was because the other person used double the amount of water, giving the same results as 10g at the original amount of water because of same concentration . but the mark scheme is probbably going to be really specific

    I actually think Physics Paper 2 was the best Paper 2, and actually overall I think the Physics exams went the best out of the three sciences. I'm just glad they're all over now but they definitely weren't as hard as we'd been made to believe they'd be

    I personaly thought Chemistry Paper 2 was better but I agree was ok except the last question. Could be quite harsh grade boundaries/mark scheme though :/

    i don't know, they'll probably be lower than they might normally be seeing as this is the first year
