    Haha, I take it it went well for you?

    Had C4 (againnnn) and Biology today.

    Biology was a beast, but no surprises there. Soo many questions I didn't have a clue about or think I wrote enough for 2 out of 3 or something :/
    C4 was fine, but I don't think it went much better than last time, but thats fine. No matter what happens, I have an A in Maths

    I'm on MEI So that means I have M1 on thursday, FP2 (paper of death) on monday, and stats 3 on thursday. I've seriously been wondering what possessed me to do further maths at the moment. Ill have done 12 EXAMS for that stupid subject. And I don't even like it that much :/

    OMGOSH! Edexcel right??
    Literally half the paper was about ecology!
    How can they write so many questions on the nitrogen cycle and then ignore genetics/DNA/biotechnology??
    It was a waste of a paper if you ask me because you didn't really need to revise 3/4 of the unit
    First question - wtf?
    Very last quesion - no time to answer??
    Lol I wish. OCR! My school switched from edexcel the same year I got in.

    By the looks of things; your paper was a tad similar to mine. There was a slightly big section on nitrogen cycle as well but it was just so vague. Little biotech and genetics; but heavy on the ecology. The exam was about 5% science knowledge; 2000% random reasoning/ common sense

    What sort of exam punches you in the face with the first question? :confused: And I ended up not answering it as well :/

    Ahh OCR :sigh: Rawwwr!!

    I think biology is generally like that, that's why the grade boudaries will never be that high because most of the time it's a shot in the dark at the mark scheme. I just hope my reasoning was good enough!! Couldn't go through all of this then not get the grades to even reapply :/

    I've been wondering; is biology actually a science? :ahee:

    Just done my chemistry unit 4 resit. It was a relatively difficult paper, but i've done better than i did in January. I suppose some of the pressure is off for unit 5

    C3 tomorrow though. I literally have not even looked at a paper since January... It's gonna be a long night methinks :dry:

    First time I'm posting on this forum.

    I'm really nervous about my Chemistry and Biology results after 2 dreadful exams, I need ~100 UMS in both but I'm scared I won't get that. First not getting in this year, then not getting the grades would be a major FML.

    Try not to worry too much before you get your results Our perception of our own performance is often flawed.

    Haha i meant OCR
    Was confused with chemistry
    The first question did put me off but i just did some calculated guessing and moved on
    Didn't answer the last one though - not enough time..
    There was absolutely no need to attend over half of my biology lessons this year if that was the exam i was going to face..
    Can you imagine not getting into medical school because of hedgehogs and seaweed-eating sheep..??

    Ah well, i've got a c3 retake to look forward to tomorrow afternoon..

    Re chemistry: i thought so too
    But our school seems to do both chemistry papers in the summer so didn't have the opportunity to retake

    Samee
    But as i'm doing the papers i'm noticing that i understand it much better than before, perhaps cause we've done c4 now..

    Yeah c3 seems loads easier once you've done c4 - I did both in January, and it made C3 seem really easy in comparison.

    And now doing fp2 means that c4 seems easy.
