    Last year it was 52 for an A, 46 for a B and so on.

    I'd probably say it will be the same. Maybe 1 or 2 lower...

    So guessing around 50 - 54 for an A

    That was the worst paper yet- it didn't seem like any of the others. The invigilator kept on trying to strike up a conversation with me as well in the exam.

    all i wanna know is which document we were supposed to get the argument indicator words from in question 1 (part c or d). Normally the question is completely on document 1 bt some people are saying it was document 2 for that part

    When I asked for an extra sheet of paper she spent ages explaining how to use it, and when she asked what question it was for, she felt the need need to explain it all again.
    How did you feel the exam went-I didn't finish it...(wonder why)

    I didn't finish either, but I think I got as many marks as I could, so I guess I'll just have to try to do better in Unit 2, though I'm not very hopeful for that one either.
    Which questions did you miss out?

    I went against my own advice and ran out of time for the 16 mark- but to be honest I wasn't expecting question 9, which seemed like an essay in itself, but on just one claim. What did you miss out?

    Well that OCR paper for critical thinking today was stupidly hard. Harder than normal
    I completely agree and I think most people on here did. There was some really weird questions and asked for 3 credibility things on one of the questions!? So glad it wash just me who found it difficult. Hopefully there will be lower grade boundaries 😥

    Yh that was dumb. I couldn't think of a second one, yet alone third

    Plus the first question was hard - I couldn't find the conclusion for the life of me. So I guessed it was part of the first sentence.

    Plus I ran out of time..... Couldn't write anything about plausibility. That's 8 marks down the drain.

    I missed out half of a 4 marker in the first section, but tbh I'm not very good with timing, so I rushed the 12 mark question and 16 mark question, which means I probably lost quite a few marks there.
    At least I didn't miss out the whole question like some of the people at my school, I need all the marks I can get.

    I usually get half and hour to do that 16 marker, but the 12 marker through me completely off. And the questions in Section A- it seems to me that they took previous years' questions and made them 10x harder. It's strange because everyone I've talked to found it hard and ran out of time... they've got to lower the grade boundaries dramatically, or I've failed...
