    I can't be the only one, can I?! Nobody else in my class even did this exam. I feel like I'm the only person in the damn world who took this, lol. I want to talk about it with someone!

    i did it, my whole class did, though not by choice! I don't like it, i think it's too waffley! still its all over now, i was annoyed that they asked us synoptic questions like the magnification one, and the protoctist and pathogen one, i didnt realise they could do that, i learnt the syllabus exactly and that was not on it!!!

    Yeah our whole class had to do it to, our teacher said it supposed to be easiest of all of the choices because some marks can be blagged. Which in some ways is true but i still think alot of depth was needed to answer some of the questions well, but not to tricky a paper. Managed to learn the module in 2 days to probably a B grade standard (hopefully) so cant be to difficult. I agree alot of questions needed waffling, after doing past papers i picked that up, many of the questions they asked give marks for nothing to do with the correct answer but thats like many bio papers. I was also shocked with the synoptic questions wasnt expecting that, bit mean as i thought the point of unifying concepts was to ask synoptic questions but werent particulary tricky probably got some of those marks.

    I knew they would have some synoptic questions but I didn't revise anything other than the specific module content because I couldn't be bothered. Didn't have a clue about the protoctist one!

    Can't believe there was a 19 mark q on soil! Annoying!

    Well there was an extended q worth 10 marks and then some little part questions. I'd only learnt the soil stuff that morning (and forgotten half of it)!
