    I know!! 64% is definitely not what I expected, so I don't know if it's a good or bad thing. I felt great after the papers but now that I've seen this.....goodbye confidence
    Trust me you would be fine. I remember you in ynofficial markscheme and you asnwered most of questioj correctly ... the boundaries are only low because for some reason a lot of people did really bad at these exams. I dont even know why they found difficult, it was pretty standard if 6ou had done past papers. About 70 percent of student in both of the as fhemistry clasess did really bad in my sixth forn 🤗🤗🤗🤗

    That was exactly what I was feeling! Ugh, we'll just have to see now. Here's to a dreadful 24 hours to go. What other subjects did you sit for?
    Fingers crossed for us both! I did OCR chemistry and Phsyics, and then Edexcel history. How about you?

    i'm so surprised! chem was always 80% for an A no matter how difficult and although that exam was very difficult, i didn't think they would drop all the way to 60%....
    Isn't that the old spec though(chem1 biol1 etc..)

    Can someone help me in explaining the protocol when it comes to taking up an AS this year? Basically, I want to take up an AS and an EPQ but I'm not too sure how. Should it be from my school or privately etc?

    thanks for the confidence booster..........yeah tbf I found the papers pretty standard! Which explains why I was downright shocked by the grade boundaries. Hopefully that's the case, I was the only student in my sixth form to sit the chemistry AS reformed exams lol. What other subjects did you sit for?
