    Oh dear, was F325 a killer once again this June? I did it in Jan, wasn't a pleasant experience doing that horrible exam under exam conditions - somehow managed to scrape an A in it.

    Honestly, I had the Jan paper as a mock and I was like ffs what do I do?! I couldn't imagine having it as my exam!
    It was a killer this June! To the people saying exams are getting easier, I really disagree...:confused:

    I personally think January's exam was harder, this exam just had a lot of calculation questions in and a last question which not too many people would've been able to complete it all as they might've forgotten about water of crystallisation from AS

    It's just the bitter adults and young adults, jealous about our youth, and will do anything to belittle the current generation's vast improvement in exam scores, in order to justify their own lackluster school days. Off with their heads, I say!

    PS - I heard AQA chemistry unit 5, june 12, was a killer.

    So much pressure.
    It seems that everywhere I go I can't avoid being asked where i'm hoping to go which is just going to make it 10 times worse when I have to tell them all I didn't get in.

    What's wrong with FM A2? Modules?
    I just found it too difficult. If you liked maths more than me it would be fine I'm sure :P I HATED FP4. So much. The bane of my life.

    Lol **** that last question, it destroyed me, I figured out how to do it like 20 seconds before time was up so only scored like 1-2 marks probably. I also think Jan's was harder but this paper was also pretty difficult IMO. I need to scrape a B to get an A overall (if coursework is roughly worth the same) and really hoping I hit it.

    I know right! Typical Lady Gaga, making us all wait forever :rolleyes:

    Lol, but yep, you are correct!

    New single: Applause
    Comes out on August 19th 2013 (19.08.201) and can be downloaded on iTunes. The album ARTPOP will be available to be pre-ordered on that date too, with a music video for Applause being released on Aug 19th also.

    So Aug 19 will be a very busy day lool

    Yeah it almost got me too but luckily I worked it all out in time so I've got those marks And I should also be getting special consideration for this exam too so that'll be another 5 marks for me which should get me around 87+ hopefully I need such a high mark to get an A though as I got a C in AS and a D in January so yeah I resat almost all the modules to make the A more possible than getting an A* in the A2 year

    Hmm. I'm not sure. I thought the paper was very easy for chem 2.
    I'd say 78 for an A
    69 for a B?

    I'd also say around 91 is full UMS. So I'm keeping my fingers crossed
