    Sorry to interrupt but Yh witfor unit 4ology 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
    Wow that's so bad!! Your class must be really annoyed with your teacher then. With us we were well prepared for all of the possible questions, but some people still ignored the biological therapy question/revised it briefly. Tbh I was expecting something on the psychological side but I still revised biological because I knew that they'd done that in the past where 2 of the same 12 markers came up twice in a row.
    But as you said, the grade boundaries should go down for unit 4.

    How did you find the paper?
    To be honest, not brilliant; thought the acid bases and buffers section was hard. Found f324 good though.

    It was okay but I didn't think it was as easy as some people made out on the thread at the time. Made a few careless mistakes as well.

    Personally I revised absolutely everything as I don't trust predictions whatsoever but my trescher made the mistake of planning lessons based around the loopa predictions meaning she would skim over topics she thought ' wouldn't come up ' so pretty much all my class went into those exams thinking certain essays would come up and even for other sections like media people only revised certain bits cause I remember there was a question ok evolutionary explanations of celebrity attraction and people afterwards were saying things like ' I couldn't answer it cause I didn't learn it ' ... I don't think people were actually annoyed at my teacher surpisngly but I think a few people aren't gonna get their A grades as a result of relying solely on predictions .... Like pretty much 3 weeks before the exam we just did the predicted essays like my teacher would spend an hour going through one essay that loopa has mentioned ect so Yh like we didn't even cover some of the essays that were asked .
    I really don't understand the amount of people willing to trust some random persons predictions off the internet like this is an alevel exam that is gonna count towards whether you get into uni or not so I wouldn't ever think of just learning some bits of the content and ignoring others ; seems completely illogical and given that AQA actually mention the use of modal answers in their examiner reports you'd have thought teachers would read them and perhaps realise that the exams cannot be predicted by thinking oh this hasn't been asked for X years so it will deffo come up hmmmm .

    It's kinda annoying though, knowing your teacher knowing your results and you still don't especially if he was expecting high from you :facepalm:

    I guess you'll find out when you become a teacher
    I think they probably start with the people who they think will get the best results to get a feel of how badly things went.

    They do do it so they can identify the people they need to talk to first before they collect their results and prep them though.

    Yh it's a funny old system ; wish everything was online and everyone could access it all at the same time lol cause when you walk in on results day your teachers know your grades but you can't ever tell whether they're pleased or not really

    Yeh gosh but then if I'm a teacher I'm gonna have this anxiety about results day every single year ahaha and Yh I guess but I think they have to view the results by accessing the list of everyone who sat X exam and then going through it rather than checking individual people but I guess they have certain people in mind whose results they'll consider in more detail and find their actual marks ect; must be quite an interesting exercise from stats point of you given you can compare from previous years ect

    Yeah I imagine you would. 40-50 years of results day stress.
    I'm not sure how it works but I thought resulte are sent by student and not by subject.
