    In the psychology exam today, most people did PSYA4R however some schools didn't recieve the new one in time and thus did PSYA4 still.

    For the new PSYA4 paper that was done today after being stolen, they repeated some questions from last year, and it was a lot easier compared to the stolen paper (which some students had to sit).
    I could quite easily be wrong, but I'm expecting a fairly easy/average paper tomorrow. I'd assume examiners would be in a panic to get a new paper written, so didn't put too much effort into thinking of incredibly difficult questions. Could be wrong though!

    Surely they can't do that? As that won't be fair...
    Nope it wasn't fair (I sat the exam today and did the replacement). The ones who got the original were at an advantage because with PSY4 you could predict what they could ask but the replacement you had to go in blind, essentially. Hopefully it means lower GB....

    For an inhibitory neurotransmitter...

    Pottassium ions open and chloride ions open
    More chloride diffuses in
    Pottassium out
    Inside more negative
    Hyperpolorisation
    Prevents action potential being fired

    is that correct?

    The thing is, AQA don't put the mark scheme or the stolen past paper on the website, let alone the grade boundaries. So we haven't got anything to compare to. As far as I'm aware.

    i think theyd be too vague to cover breadth marks to be honest, if you can write at least 5 paragraphs covering all four units OR animal/plant and bacteria then it could come up
