    I don't suppose either of you wants to discuss it do you? Or would that be bordering on revising for general studies? Which I guess is quite sad.

    Hmm i'm not looking forward to this paper. They claim it's a 'synoptic' paper but it really just requires us to waffle (in a similar fashion to the waffle in the specification) for 1hr 45mins.

    Mine is AQA B, perhaps yours is the AQA A syllabus. Mine is definitely 105mins.

    Me neither. What's the spec say?
    It's a total joke: http://www.aqa.org.uk/qual/gceasa/genB.html
    Reading the examiners reports can be amusing though. They state that they enjoy marking the module 6 papers just because there are no candidates who state a protest at being forced to do general studies :rolleyes:

    One in January I talked about the Strokes and their drug habits for 7 sides. In the one a few weeks ago I talked about Neighbours for 4 sides too.

    The last column shows how the price of the product has changed since 1971. if the value is less than 100 it has decreased, greater than 100 and it has increased, i think. The other colums show the spending changes.

    I thought it was a fair paper... did the state education/healthcare essay for the second section and managed to find a couple of pages of good waffle... the first section was as expected - am thankful that I actually studied the CS in detail... so I could have a laugh at those who didn't, who I could see flicking desperately through the paper in the exam

    Am hoping it'll push up the marks for GS after the horrors that were GS4 and 5 as my Uni place is actually dependent on this mark... :-/

    I did transport, because I'd had to revise that in great detail for geography, so I just used those arguements and referenced a few government applications of them. Easiness!
