    Pretty much the same the papers were alright but the loopa predictions literally ruined a 24 marker in each paper for me. For Unit 3 the aggression one was completely wrong like the guy said it is the least likely to come up and in unit 4 the that schizophrenia was a repeat of last year so i never bothered to look at it too much. Hopefully my other essays helped boost my grade as i thought they went quite well.
    Yeah, that schizophrenia essay did throw a lot of people away considering that it already came up last year! Hopefully the boundaries will be decent though
    What grades did you get last year and what are you planning to study at uni?

    Same dude. Both papers were decent just that they wording of the Congress 45 marker was kinda weird which is the one i did in my unit 4 exam. Hopefully it goes well for the both of us
    I did ideolgoies and that went horribly wrong. I feel like I've failed tbh. I would actually be happy with a C in politics tbh

    Sorry to interrupt but Yh with psychology my teacher basically told everyone it would be classification and diagnosis for sccizophrebia and psychological explainations so she made us write them essays up and spent so long moaning to us how the essays weren't good enough and that she was worried how it could come up so we literally did nothing on bio therapies within class so I'm guessingn a lot of people in my class just wrote pretty generic points eg. Drugs have side effects and are cheap and easy which they'll get limited marks for and I don't think anyone seemed to know any studies for this essay anyways so I really think the grade boundaries for unit 4 should go down a bit like at least 2 marks would be good and then unit 3 will either stay the same or go down like 1 mark

    Well grade boundries are doing set now... Papers marks are known... It'd be great to be able to have access to them but oh well. It must be nice to be an examiner.

    Yh true I've reached the point where I've convinced myself alevels are rather pointless when you can just keep retaking forever till you get a good grade

    The pay is rubish however (30p per paper) and teaching is cool, secondary or primary?
    I'm thinking about going into lecturing (because I like teaching but don't like small kids, like research and dispare at the way schools are run by a centeral clique with no external ideas accepted (being part of student leadership this year made me realise how insular school leadership really is)) which is another reason I want to do a PhD
