    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.
    I heard that too about chem5!
    My friends told me it was terrible

    Personally I didn't find it too hard really, there were a few questions there that would've caught a lot of people out but they didn't really catch me. The only mistake I made was thinking the area of a triangle was base x height which was just silly and made me lose 4 marks, however I'll get special consideration so I should get them back

    What level of special consideration do you get, and for what?

    Just 5% of the marks because the fire alarm went off during my exam so we applied for the special consideration and had it granted too.

    why? i masturbate so i can relax and try and reduce my stress...whats wrong with that?



    no man, after i have finished masturbating, i sit on hours on the toilet seat because my sperm keeps oozing out....and i am scared if i get up without letting it all ooze out completely, then i might contaminate everything..such as the floor, things around me, my boxers, my clothes !!!



    what shall i do then
    Just piss...

    That's unfortunate for the kid and no I wasn't allowed to move, they made us work through it and said they'd get us if it was a real fire
