    Yeah I came out of the non-calc knowing I'd failed but but was much happier about the calculator!
    The examiners are some crafty people :P

    Does anyone remember any questions from the French edexcel paper? Or were there any questions people found hard?? I can't remember anything about it because it was my first exam but I think I found listening much harder..

    The link you've posted is broken. Here is the correct link.

    As for the subject of the article itself, I completely agree with Michael Gove's reforms to bring an end to tiered examinations. It's about time we brought an end to capped aspirations and unnecessarily dumbed down papers.

    This might be pure coincidence, but I've heard more or less the same subjects mentioned by everyone as their worst exams. In my school, people who took the same exam board in a subject with several options (i.e: Edexcel French, Spanish or German for their languages studies and AQA Graphics, Resistant Materials or Food Tech for their Design Technology studies) all complained about how hard it was.

    So basically a lot of people found these subjects their hardest in my school, despite taking different languages or tech choices with the same board. Do exam boards try and make ALL of their language or tech exams (for example) to the same difficulty, or is this just a massive coincidence?
    That's not necessarily true, I did both French and Spanish on AQA and I and everyone else taking both found Spanish a lot easier than French! German was on Edexcel so I guess that also flaws your theory

    Oh yeah that was it, I remember it being weird because it had both describe and explain which threw me, I know its silly but still

    Well I got a high A on my coursework and before the exam I was hoping for an A* but now I'm pretty sure I'll only scrape an A, which I'd be happy with

    You?
    Well I only just got an A on my coursework haha so I needed to get a high A but I think I will get a high B so that would make me a high B overall therefore I will retake it in November

    Lol ur right about the safety net, it will be very risky for me because the only linear exams i sat were maths, history and rs
    I'll have to resit AS along with A2 if I fail so I'll make sure I pass!

    Wow, that must've been a lot of work

    What for AS? I haven't sat my ALIS yet :lol: By MIDYIS scores I was predicted an A in everything but French and English. My last set of grades pre-exams were As for Biology, Chemistry, English Lit, English, Maths and History and A*s for RS, French, Spanish and Physics.

    Yeah, I did higher I've always been pretty bad at listening.. I can't keep up with what they're saying and when they say it the first time, I start scribbling something down and I miss the second time

    Thought it went well apart from the currents section as we weren't taught in depth.

    Does anyone think that if I got around 117 in the higher maths def then I might be able to scrape a few lucky marks to get an A? I really hate maths:\

    A is around 65%, which is 130/200 if this is Edexcel.
    Lowest it's been is like 55% so maybe but I didn't find the year hard or easy compared to my past papers
