    What would 38/60 be on average? Would it get me an A?
    Either a very high (and unlucky) B or an A.

    I've signed the petition. Might not help but oh well, at least we tried. Has anybody seen the #aqabiology posts? Seems like we're doing well so far with E4 and the Telegraph writing about the exam.

    Signed the petition as well but... wont the grade boundaries be lower anyway as the majority of students did worse? Don't AQA adjust the grade boundaries to ensure the percentage of students who get A*/A/B/C etc remain the same every year?

    I thought you had to times by 100
    You already have times'd by a hundred- it should be 0.67 or 0.666... If its more it means youve multiplied by 100 more than once

    Only represents boys at the age of 15?
    Yeah, you should be allowed that. I said the sample size was too small, basically the same thing.

    Last year, that was a low A and the boundaries will probably be even lower this year so I'd guess a mid-A but don't count on it!

    probably need to be more specific, eg rat tailed maggots
    So how many marks do you reckon I would get? I also mentioned oxygen meters for the very last question.

    [QUOTE=Haashym;64876213]The indicator species answer was lichens and the environmental factor was air pollution

    It said to name an animal indicator species so wouldn't it have been invertebrates and measure water pollution due to the dissolved levels of oxygen

    Well, we're all hoping the grade boundaries will be lowered but for now all we can do is hope AQA will be more reasonable. Have you seen the unofficial mark scheme? I think I got 25-27. Which is probably a C I had such high hopes of getting a B, maybe an A in this exam. And all we got tested on was how drunk rats are, the colours of snail shells and how many 15-year olds drink alcohol? I've never been so stressed in my life, I know I did so bad.
