    Paper 2 of the specimen made me go from a C to a U overall ..
    Hope AQA don't make this an impossible bio exam which goes viral
    Wouldn't it be better if it went viral and then the grade boundaries dropped?...

    Did you guys not do the Specimen Paper 1 Set 2?
    Most of the questions were based off of them. I did Paper 1 Set 1 and Paper 1 Set 2 from the mark scheme, revised the answers + revision guide and thought it went alright ... watch me come out with a D in August though :O

    it was! Glad someone agrees with me! I've been getting A's and B's on all the past papers, and in comparison I thought it was much difference and the questions seemed unfair, they didn't really test our information recall at all!
