    Only 36/60 for an A* in biology paper 3 . Stunned considering all the articles I 've seen about the science grade boundaries being high this year.
    I know its amazing, I thought it was easier than the mock! Physics unit 3 is 41, its usually in the high 40s!

    Scroll 3/4 down and you'll see GCSE.
    That's 2012 and for a level?

    Isn't German Reading- 39/45 for an A* and not forty?

    Typing error. It is 45, not 40. My mistake.

    I'm surprised with biology - despite the fact I almost certainly got 0 for the final question because I didn't understand what knowledge they were asking for.

    Physics looks good as well - gives me a fighting chance considering I pretty much had to teach myself it from the text book becuase they fired our physics teacher and replaced him with a cover teacher who knew nothing about physics.

    Not surprised chemistry is 44/60 as I seem to remember it was very similar to the specimen paper.

    Scroll down and you come to GCSE, yeah, thanks.

    Quite happy I'd say! Think History is quite high on OCR though.

    What would 100 ums in the isa be? And this is a bit of a stupid question but in the biology unit 3 exam there was a question asking which type of blood vessels there were. Does it matter if you answer in singular or plural form? So for example arteries instead of artery? Sorry for being a pain but it seems that every mark counts!
