    Here's some tips:
    1. Turn off the laptop
    2. Study

    Then after the exam:
    1. Sit down
    2. Shut up
    Woah man chill, who gave you the blues today??
    btw we need a break at some point, general consensus is we all sat a shocking maths exam. Just a thought

    I think you are just overacting the Maths exam was not hard if you actually revised. I just don't understand why students cause a huge uproar whenever they see an opportunity. I do think the AQA Biology exam was out of order but there really was nothing wrong with the Edexcel Maths paper. If Edexcel gave you a ridiculously easy paper than the grade boundaries would have become too high so a paper like this is just what we needed to keep the grade boundaries down.

    I think it's unfair for you to judge how much revision I have done for maths compared to how hard I actually found the exam. Of course we shouldn't expect or wish for a "ridiculously easy paper", that would defy the point of exams as a test of our knowledge and skill. My point was simply that, as students sitting the same exam, it's nice to hear how others have done and how they found the exam in terms of difficulty and to gripe about an exam, especially as a large amount of people found it difficult.
    Have a nice day and good luck with the rest of your exams!

    Lets sue Edexcel. Lets sue AQA. You know what? Lets sue all the exam boards. You know why? They were way too hard for us so we should just sue them instead of working harder right? mali473

    i'm taking AS at the moment so i know how annoying it is when people call GCSEs easy or whatever.
    You do have a f*king tonne in store for next year, like nothing can ever prepare you.

    its just an onslaught of "everything we taught you last year was a lie" followed by "here's the new explanation" followed by "here's a hwk sheet that is in no way related to what we just covered in class- good luck figuring it out!"

    But trust me your results will come out much better than you think they're going to. If you're clever enough to be using tsr then you'll be reyt. The exam boards are very annoying at GCSE though that's true.

    good luck w the rest of your exams m7
    Thank you! A actual nice, positive comment that actually recognises the stress gcse students are under. It seems that what was originally a thread to humorously complain and commiserate about a difficult paper is now full of people telling us to quit complaining and how GCSEs are easy; people who don't add anything to the general happiness and wellbeing of others.
    Once again, thanks for actually understanding

    You know what's funny? Not you. So many people have worked so much and found it hard.

    Jesus, people need to stop with these bloody assumptions, half of us nearly died revising but we still found it difficult. Its a matter of opinion.

    yeah but that's the whole point. Exams are meant to be hard and if you found it hard there's no point complaining -
    its pointless...
