    ok the exam was alright-ISH!

    my design looked soooooo bad though.. mainly cos i was rushing it... i thought i won't be able to finish the rest of the exam cos i spent agesssssss just drawing the initial ideas..and it didn't help the fact that ma desk was wobbling so much and my pencils kept falling off the desk..>__>.but i managed to finish it in time in the end so wasnt too bad i guess

    well when i did the mock our teacher set the boudaries as 90% for A* and 80% for A...i dont think they will b this high for this exam though as it was quite hard...im thinking mayb 80-85% for an A*..that is a pure guess tho...

    I got 88% in my mock and that was an A* - I'm guessing the boundaries'll be roughly the same as it wasn't one of the harder papers.

    I got a mid B on the mock, that was about 84/125 so 67%. The PDF says the exam was out of 140 but it's out of 125. Overall with CW and the exam an A* is 84% according to the PDF.

    The practical was good, but the folder stuff was so time-consuming - not all that hard, just a lot of sticking.
    The exam is weird as well - I don't like the designing stuff bit, and think I probably flunked it.

    Was the question about the flammable thing as easy as I thought? Or was there some deeper answer?

    Ouch, I struggled being healthy! (Well, physically, mentally I was a wreck!)
    It did kill my holidays.

    Okay, I think I managed something similar!
