    I need some help. You know the question with BEFA what were E and F? Was E where the nuclei splits? some-student
    I think that it was:
    B - neutrons fired
    E - briefly as excited Uranium-236
    F - nuclei split
    A - releasing neutrons and lots of energy

    I still can't believe they described the neutrons as excited

    Oh no I got it wrong then. I did BFEA I was stuck on that for a while thinking about it but I thought as soon as neutrons hit the nuclei splits. Hopefully they'll give me a mark for getting the other 2 right. I just wanted to ask. What do you think I would get, my coursework was 43/48, p123 was 57/75 (very harshly marked ahah didn't give any for 6 markers) and p456 64/85

    Lol, they done it intentionally :P. Excited is the condition of an atom or molecule after absorbing energy.

    Low A, but that shouldn't matter. At GCSE - it's only your grade lol no marks are looked at tbh.

    You were 25% into the grade boundary
    Thank you both How do you calculate the final grade from the total UMS at the end?

    For any qualification, the UMS grade boundaries are always the same:
    90% UMS = A*; 80% UMS = A; 70% UMS = B; and so on...

    But raw mark (i.e. the score you get on the paper) to UMS conversions vary every year.

    I'll mark you against 2014's grade boundaries as they are the highest:

    P1 P2 P3: 57/75 raw marks would be 131/140 UMS
    P4 P5 P6: 64/85 raw marks would be 156/160 UMS
    Coursework: 43/48 raw marks would be 90/100 UMS


    Overall you would get 131 + 156 + 90 = 377 / 400 UMS which is an A* - and is 42.5% into the grade boundary so pretty solid

    Final science exam done! (I break up on Friday though )

    It was better than the P1 P2 P3 in my opinion but it was still difficult.

    How did you all find it?
    I'd just like to say thank you for all of your mark schemes that you've made. They're really clear and offered relief to me during this exam period.

    No problem - thanks so much

    I'm a bit of a perfectionist which is why they're so detailed

    Hope you get the grades you want on results day

    I'm in the middle of trying to make C1 C2 C3 from memory, which is here: http://www.thestudentroom.co.uk/show....php?t=4181337 but it might not be as good as the others because it was 12 days ago now

    It's just such an unusual word choice... And they ask us to use scientific vocabulary lol
