    I thought the exam was easy, next to no science knowledge needed. I'm very annoyed that a lot of the syllabus was not on the exam. Cloning, Fertilisation, Menstrual cycle. I could go on.
    There was just something about this years exam; It felt really dumbed down yet oddly worded.
    100% agree
    It's like AQA just wanted us to waste our time revising tbh
    And the 6 marker... on food!?
    Screw that

    Also, what did you get for the independent company? I just wrote it was a company not linked to others to avoid bias and cheating.
    Correct

    Had I gone into that exam knowing the definition of an "independent company" rather than "homeostasis" or "metabolic rate", then I actually might have passed.

    Judging by unofficial mark scheme and my own knowledge, I'm looking at around 52-53/60. Any ideas what grade this would be?

    you dont find out about grade boundaries until they release the result but then i think i think A* should be around 43/60. Thats me giving an educated guess though

    Definitely an A*. The highest grade boundary for an A* from the last 4 years is 47/60, and I bet it'll be a pretty low boundary this year
