    Exactly mine. I have a love hate relationship with bullet point 3 sometimes!
    Same, it all depends on how people interpret the points for bullet point 3 because you could interpret it a different way to everyone else and that could still be right in your eyes but wrong in the mark scheme.

    Man i talked about how what they did would determine what to do for the rest of the trip according to the husbands injury

    For example, I said we would take more excursions if the husband was fit enough

    SH*It

    Do u think i will be awarded some marks?
    Yeah the mark scheme has a variety of options. Plus the extract was very to your own interpretation and pretty long!!

    That's why I hate this mark scheme. Especially Q2 where there are so many interpretations but only 1 correct one in terms of Cambridge.

    It has been a pleasure to host this thread. I hope everybody found it useful. BTW guys, did you notice the error in Q3 where they stated the importance of honeybees. They forgot to include humans. It may have an effect on some people although I think it really didn't have an effect on me but that Was unacceptable.
    What do you mean there was a mistake?

    Hey!

    I can't help you on that one, unfortunately. I know that I got 29/30 on the speaking but I'm not too sure on the coursework. I thought I got 36/40 and 9/10 for the other bit but I don;t think that's the case!


    Anyway, good luck for today! Hopefully the exam paper won't be hellish like last years!
    Thanks,
    btw how did you find the exam??

    The question was: What are honeybees useful to humans and what threatens their existence.

    It said this at the top and at the top of part (b) but in the box that you have to write the notes it didn't say to humans just what are honeybees useful for or something like that.

    The egyptian medicine idea should be fine because the examiners always try to throw curve balls at you and I'm quite sure that was one of them. If you developed the idea of health, I think the examiner would be ridiculously churlish so you're fine! Hope you get your A* and get what you want in the rest of your exams!
    Haha that's good! I need 48/50 and this paper totally took that chance away so hopefully I got an A! Good luck to you and hopefully you get all the grades you want as well hope the examiners are really kind as it was probably the toughest paper for this exam board (in my opinion)!

    What did you get for your coursework? If it says 52, maybe it's because, no offence, your coursework may be too low so with the exam added on, it may not be enough to push you to an a*.

    I got 40/50 and 18-20/25 which equals 58-60/125. 106-58 = 48 106-60 = 46 so I need either 46 or 48 depending on my speaking and listening mark.

    If you are confused about questions and if your answers are correct, it's best to speak to teachers when they get the paper tomorrow because they'll know if your points are valid or not. Hope everyones exam went well!

    guys in previous mark schemes it says additional incorrect points for the 15 mark bulletpoints will negate. Does that mean tht if you write more than 15 and some of them are wrong will they deduct marks? What does negate actually mean? I didn't write more thn 15 myself cos I couldn't actually find more and ended up blagging some but some of my friends wrote 21?! Will they get marks taken off if theyre wrong?

    (sorry repost from unofficial mark scheme)

    Question 1 and 3 was my love for the whole exam so easy but question 2 was a bit of a myth

    If you write more than 15 anything outside your first 15 is just ignored. Even if one is wrong in the first 15 and one right in the others you have put you will not be credited. The examiner only judges the first 15. Negate means ignore.

    Is it just me or was the exam poorly written? I misinterpreted one or 2 paragraphs in the Q1 and Q2 text. Anybody feel this way?
