    my school, just got this reply from OCR



    it came as an attachment as a PDF, so im guessing quite a few people filed complaints with OCR hence why they have pre-prepared a reply for this issue

    That's the guy who allowed the paper to go to print?! ... what's his name?

    What does everyone think the grade boundaries will be like? I reckon this is the hardest f325 paper yet so I reckon it'll be around 60 for an A 53 for a B etc

    I don't know if it'll be that low, maybe close to the january boundaries perhaps a bit higher.

    I think regardless of how low grade boundaries will be I am still going to end up with an E or a U on this paper. It was nothing like any of the other papers :'( So worried about Thursday

    I finally plucked up the courage to go onto this thread, I was a complete mess after this exam - this exam was the worst I've ever sat. OCR Bio 5 had nothing on this. I failed - and i can kiss Pharmacy goodbye who want an A in Chem - aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaah ****

    **** YOU OCR :mad:

    By far the worst exam I have ever sat!

    I was in exactly the same position. After I came out of the exam hall I was so messed up It took me over a day to get back into revising and forgetting about this exam. I feel like all that preparation and questions I did were wasted completely.

    You applied to pharmacy? Same! I firmed Aston who asked for an A in Chemistry. After this ridiculous paper its never going to happen And tbh I dont even know if I can average a C in chem...

    What was your firm/insurance?

    Yeah Pharmacy - oh wow Aston is also my firm - I haven't got an insurance, but to be honest, Aston is the only place I want to go. I re-took all the units in Chem to boost my AS result, I only just got an A last year, but thought it'd be a good idea to get them higher. What a waste.

    Yeah, I know what you mean. I loved Aston :'(
    I did F322 again in Jan and got that up to an A. And I did F321 again in June but I think I've done worse, I didn't prepare well for it.
    Did you do F324 in June?

    What are your marks like if you don't mind me asking?

    It's totally subjective I guess, everyone's personal abilities aren't the same cos I found chem so much easier than physics.

    And my physics teacher was brilliant.
