    AQA are being so unsympathetic right now too.

    "An AQA spokeswoman told Metro.co.uk: ‘Exams aren’t meant to be easy and students are obviously going to tweet about that, but there was nothing wrong with this paper. We wish everyone the best of luck with the rest of their exams.’"

    Good luck isn't going to help if your questions aren't in the spec

    Me too biology was my strongest and today's paper completely took me by surprise. Chemistry and physics are both my weaknesses and AQA are being disgustingly harsh this year. My next Re exam is on june the 7th. Good luck with yours, i'm sure you'll get an A* if you get As for your mocks
    Same, I hate Chemistry but Physics is okay for me. And thank you! What did you usually get in your RE mocks? If it's anything between A*-B you'll do fine, RE is pretty easy compared to science. You just use beliefs and teachings and try to justify it and stuff, it's not that bad really.

    was the rats question in foundation or higher?
    First question of Higher, Question 7 of Foundation. You didn't actually need to know anything about the rats.

    Or the colour wheel? Maybe surface graphics? Ooh, wait, how about inflation and deflation in the economy? Might as well revise that. It makes more sense to revise things that have nothing to do with the syllabus.

    I put 'more accurate' or 'more reliable results'. Something like that should get you the marks. Was it 1 or 2 marks? I can't remember

    Wait - I just looked up the definition for it and it uses the word junction too. Will the examiners let me have this answer?

    Earlier in the thread somebody posted an "unofficial markscheme" compiled by people from what they thought. I've had a look and the majority of it is bang on the money so it's a good guessing starting point.

    0.67% is right - I've explained a couple of times above why :

    Junction is actually the word they use for gap in the spec. You'll be fine :

    I did something similar to the question ''why wasn't a thermometer used'' and the six marker about balanced diet in class with my teacher before the exam, she also taught us about indicators and GM crops...if only i took it serious.

    I only remembered the answer for the thermometer one: a data logger is more sensitive and accurate because it detects the smallest changes.
