    Guys an issue has been raised! Have a read of this Attachment 231922 i'm really stressing now because science is one of the subjects I must do well in to progress forward and I was not confident after completing the june exams in science so this could ruin everything.

    The article is referring only to the new Science courses, which are being sat by those who are currently in Year 10 but will be going into Year 11 next year.

    I was so nervous last year especially about science but this year for some odd reason I'm not because I know I put everything in those 10 exams and I wouldn't have done them any other way, with an exception of biology

    The news article is just saying that the new spec science exams are harder than the old spec ones, hence why more people will get less A*'s than if they would've have sat the old spec ones.

    I'll be starting Year 11 soon. Until then, I will collect my results for three exams I did in Year 10: Biology1, Physics1 and Mathematics3. Good luck everyone!

    I don't know about you, but I've just finished year eleven and my teachers made a huge deal about the fact that we were doing a new syllabus.

    Oh ok so hopefully my A* is still intact then and people said the chemsitry exam I took was extremely hard and my teacher agreed so they can't really increase the grade boundaries as that wouldn't accurately reflect the difficulty of the exam ! Thanks for clearing that up I'm going to stop worrying now
    Did you do AQA, out of interest?

    Yeh the AQA Science A course I found the exams really easy to be honest,but I did do loads of past papers so this came in handy especially for the chem exam which had repeats of questions from past papers like the question about how nitrogen oxides are formed !!

    Oh no!!! I suppose I'll just have to go in at the very end of the day or at the very beginning. I don't even think for one second that I even got a C, so I really don't want to be accosted by class mates or year 11's !

    Yeh I'm going to arrive there the minute the school opens and I'm going to privately look at them and go home nice and quickly without bumping into any classmates in my back..the issue I have is that I am expected to do really well so if I haven't done as good then I will be super embarrassed so I'd rather I just found them out when nobody else is so I can tell them over fb or whatever or in September when Ive got over how I've done !

    I don't want to hang around in the school hall opening it. I think I might open it on my way home or at home.
