    I don't know. The paper was so long and boring. I get so bored during 1h45 papers and start losing focus. But I don't normally say that I mess things up. I reckon i'll end up scraping an A, but the A* dream is kaput without a doubt.

    Further Maths was a treat! I personally didn't have any problems at all, despite a few odd questions here and there. Although credit to my amazing maths teacher.
    Yes I completely agree Hopefully paper 2 will be like that

    Most people in my year also got that. I was really happy with the paper because I went in dreading the optimising problems & logs question, glad they were easy enough though

    I was dreading questions about curves and stuff, I never know whether to differentiate or fill in x where or whatever, but I think it went really well!

    It was so good that they split it up into parts as well rather than just one question

    Did you find the proof for that question a bit weird. It probably wasn't hard but I got a similar equation and then just wrote (-400 for each) at the end and got the equation. How many marks out of 3 is that?

    Anyone do Biology Unit 2 today and want to discuss?

    x. Purpose of amniotic fluid? I said to absorb impact.
    x. 2 Osomsis environmental factors? Can't believe I forgot about this one in the exam, but I said temperature and pH. I'm pretty sure I won't get the mark for pH.
    x. How can we tell from this diagram that fertilisation is occurring? I said that the nucleus of the sperm was touching/in contact with the egg cell.
    x. Suggest the (according to the diagram) rate of blood flow in the capillaries. According to my friends this had something to do with pressure. I said that it moves at a slower rate to allow time for gasses to diffuse but I just evidence that it was because it was going upwards, I couldn't include pressure because it asked to use the diagram.

    I actually thought Biology was okay, I was freaking out this morning because I thought I knew literally nothing, but it definitely wasn't anywhere near as bad as I expected!
