Ugh. Well, I think I did real good on the writing parts, and then balls on the electric stuff. Which to be fair is what I expected to happen.

Figured the maximum possible mark i could have got is about 73, thats with generous marking, so probs closer to 60 which should be the b I need.

I think its riduculous and unfair however that some candidates were given more time, and will be sending a very stern email OCR's way, inquiring about how they intend to ensure that the examination is fair to all that took it. Does anybody know what action they took about the D1 paper, if any?

This was on BBC a while ago. I think it said that everyone would be given full marks for that question

Yes, but it wasn't very funny :indiff:


Based on previous grade boundaries, that may well be an A :dontknow:

66/100 was an A for Jan 2011, and 60/100 was an A in June 2010. My feeling is they will probably be a little higher this year, maybe high 60s.

I thought the paper was pretty straightforward, there were'nt any questions that were too hard to do, and supperisingly i had enough time to finish it. and the mistake they made didn't really effect anything.
I completely agree. If you knew the textbook/CGP well enough then all the questions were answerable

Haha yeah. I guess when I said I will ask how OCR will ensure the paper is fair for all candidates, I meant I will ask how OCR will ensure the paper is fair in my favour :ahee: Coming out of the exam I knew that was my least favourite question on the paper, error or no error (hell, I didnt even notice the error)

:yep: .. I didn't even think of pointing the mistake out. Considering one of the people in my year sitting the paper turned up 15 minutes late when I was just about doing the question meant I took a light-hearted look at it I think :rofl:

Heres a new one for you all:

Did anyone else write the 3 outcomes of the universe in the wrong order? I did open, then flat, then closed, REALISED I'd done them in the wrong order and relabelled the answer boxes, and made it very clear which I was talking about.

Hopefully thats enough to make it clear what a daft thing I did.
...

Weird thing is, another guy in my class did exactly the same thing >.<


All in all, I hated every second of it, but hopefully I did okay. I'm going through working it out and I probably got between 65-70 so fingers crossed that'll be enough for an A.

Oh also, I didnt even notice the error somehow! Just carried on totally oblivious of it O.o

Am I the only person who finished with plenty of time spare, and is still complaining to OCR just in the hope that it could make my grade better?
