    I thought it was ok, a tad hard.

    I fell into the trap of putting something else for "l'art" instead of art.

    For the question about the bungee, what did we put for the first one?

    For one of the last questions about what else does the camp site provide, what was detendre?

    If you are doing OCR then you would still get an A They use a point system to determine your mark - an A*= 8, A=7 B=6 C=5 etc..., then for an A* you need 30 (out of 32) points and for an A you need 26. This means that for an A you could get 2 A's and 2 B's (or more of course ) or 3 A's and 1 C. Unfortunately the point system means a high B is no different from a low B, but you sound like you did well anyway, so don't worry

    Seriously?

    So if I got 2 crap As and 2 crap Bs I'd still get an A overall?

    Yeah OCR.

    That's annoying because I reckon I'll get a high A and 3 high Bs, thus meaning I won't get an A.

    Seems a bit unfair tbh but there we go.

    That was on the AQA paper - there's a thread about that at http://thestudentroom.co.uk/t123982.html. I put 'after you've tried clothes on, see a sales assistant', but it was actually 'before you've tried clothes on'. Damn.

    A B grade still looks pretty good on the old results certificate.

    Don't worry about it - I was exactly the same!!! A lot of my friends found the first question in Section 2 really hard as well. Hopefully the hardness of it will be reflected in the grade boundaries! I think it'll be about 65% to get an A overall..

    People always presume the worst and give themselves the lowest, so i bet one of your high B's is actually an A
