    yeah yeah 300, sorry. Science never was my forte. I do enjoy bio and physics to a certain extent though.

    I got 287/300 on my modules, 56/60 on my coursework (full marks on one, 7685 on the other), and on last years papers I got a about 88% on paper one and 82% on paper two...... that should be enough!

    Im not sure whether they'll allow just resistor, but my boyfriend put it so i hope u get the mark!
    I didnt think the exam was that bad, but i thought the question with the atomic masses and all that stuff bout atomic moles equalling litres totally confused me.
    i agree with u arsenalfan1988, the top bar looked really wierd, i checked it like was right like 5 times!

    No! Not at all! At my school, which is quite a good state school, in the class, mine was the 2nd highest and I got 51 (have no idea what out of). But, I haven't found that most people get full marks for Science coursework, and I worked really hard at them, doing extra research and stuff.
    Ditto.

    I did the work myself with a little guidance from my subject teachers.

    I don't actually know of anyone in my class who had 60/60 for their coursework.

    I had about 266/300 for my modules but I can't remember exactly what mark I got for each. Originally I had three Bs, two As and an A* but I resat two of the Bs and - somehow - managed to get A*s in both of them.

    It made me wish I had actually revised properly the first time around since I believe I could've done a lot better. My revision for the first modules I sat consisted of reading the revision guide the night before. Thankfully, my revision techniques have seen an improvement since then!

    I had 59/60 on my coursework. Much prefer coursework to modules.

    I think I obsess about school, exams, answers to questions worth just the one mark too much. I don't know exactly what I'm going to do with myself in the summer. My guess is that I'll be obsessing about Results Day (so scary it deserves to be capitalised).

    I am exactly the same Lottie, I am going to be a nervous wreck on Results Day, and I know I probably won't feel satisfied with what I get, even if they are good!

    I know I won't know whether I want to open the envelope or not. If the teachers are like "Well done" before then maybe it'll make me feel better. I really can't imagine getting them!

    Me neither, just thin, 2 years of hard work and it all comes down to a bit of paper with letters on, the final result in your hands. I might go to a quiet place by my lonesome and open my results, if they're good i'll go back to school and hug and kiss everything, if not, i'll go home sad.

    The school's policy is that if you're in the top set for French and RE you have to take the GCSE course, then he got chosen to do art. Here, in my county, you switch schools at the end of year 9.

    Sometimes I find it weird that, for the most part, two years' work boils down to an exam or two that, combined, don't last more than four hours.

    A girl can hope.

    (And, hi! I'm hoping to do French and History next year too.)

    I think it will be bearing in mind that the paper was roughly comparable in difficulty to paper 2 last year.
