    assuming everyone is doing the aqa fm paper, last year it was 46% overall for an a, 64% for an a* and 80% for an a^. a c is literally like 40/175 altogether so i think we can all get that at least haha. i really would like to get an a* but considering i havent done much for the exam id be content with just an a.

    DME is the third paper in Geography with Edexcel. It's a decision making exercise. You basically read some statistics on a situation within a country, answer a few questions on these statistics and make a decision of what should be done with said situation. This is whether this situation is an economic one, social one or environmental.
    tl;dr it's really ****ing boring and is pretty much an unseen exam.

    Also I don't do AQA.
    Sorry.

    DME is not really based on any content.
    It may include keywords from Unit 1 and Unit 2, which I will probably remember anyway.
    I think you're confusing this with the Unit 2 exam.

    You see, i wrote that at first but then I thought about it, i thought that fluorine is a gas at room temp but for rubidium u need to put that extra energy and boil it
