    Don't mean to sound creepy, but do you have a Scottish accent?
    If so, I think you scots have the best accent

    I like my accent but people who aren't Scottish find it hard to understand us sometimes haha x

    Is results day usually this late? Swear it's like 14th or something usually. This wait is killing me! I just want it done with

    Indeed, it was the 13th last year I believe. I've heard it's because they can only hold results day on Thursdays or some nonsense like that

    Yeah, I also found SCYL3 and 4 good, just hope this doesn't affect my grade as there's only 4-5 marks between each grade boundaries 🙄

    Hopefully man.My main worry is that I don't think I did well in Unit 4- time management was a mess. I need to be optimistic about it though.

    I was thinking the same too. One other thing that doesn't seem right is how only 4 people have been caught out as a result. Where are the other 36? It's a messed up scenario, but it is only fair that AQA assures all other Sociology students that this problem was dealt with correctly. At the end of the day, this will result in increased grade boundaries for the rest of us
    Yeah howcomes only 4 were penalised
    She also seems kinda selfish tbh. It seems in that article that she just wants everybody who didn't get penalised to get a U, like she got.

    It's a sad situation for all that didn't mean to cheat, and were only on the whatsapp for help. It depends entirely on whether it was something that was planned, which is why I suspect only 4 have been punished as a result

    From what I've read in the article there was a whatsapp group on here, loads of people were on it, someone leaked the questions and only 4 of them got penalised out of the 40 or so in the group according to the dailymail.

    If the questions were leaked why didn't the girl report it as soon as it was leaked. Her running to the media moaning isn't going to help her case at all because she still cheated. It seems she is just upset that got caught and some others didnt.
    I dont even feel sorry for her...she's been on the radio all day and it seems she just wants fame. If she was one of those 'who got away with it'...she wouldn't be mouthing off to the media.

    Exactly. Didn't really think of it like that, but yeah- why the hell would you go running to the press afterwards? Surely, if you realise the depth of the situation- maybe inform the school beforehand??
    I don't really have a solution to this, but it seems right for AQA to trace down all the students who did get the message.

    Its does but maybe AQA are finding it hard to? How would be a track down students on a whatsapp group? By phone numbers/display pics or what?

    The girl seems the typical selfish 'when it suits me type'. To me...she is just upset that she got a U grade and so many others didn't.
    In the article it says she has been in contact with a few members of the group and found out they didnt get penalised.... so she is fuming.

    Yes it may be unfair that so many saw the questions yet only a few are disqualified.....but running to the newspapers to make sure the rest of the group get disqualified as well is spiteful behaviour imo and says a lot about her character.

    I understand where you're coming from. More so about taking revenge, than actually about the fact that they cheated the system. I guess someone in the group was smart to report it as soon as.
    Most worrying for me is how this will effect the grade boundaries

    I mentioned this earlier, but I would be extremely surprised if this affected the boundaries in any way. Look at it objectively: at most 40 people in the group saw three out of four of the questions. A few more might have also seen them, but that's still a tiny fraction of the entry. Also, because you have to write essays in a Sociology exam, just knowing what the questions are a few hours in advance does not necessarily allow you to gain a higher mark than you would have got otherwise.

    So glad I never joined that sociology whatsapp group now :laugh:I found both exams okay but quite a few didn't so, regardless of the 'cheating' thing, the grade boundaries might be lower as people seemed to hate unit 4

    For AS results, I think grade boundaries will be very low.

    I might just be overthinking:dontknow:. Let's just hope that AQA are going to be sweet to us all. Should we start a petition? haha

    Just being curious; can Scottish people speak with that aristocratic British accent as well, if they want to?
