    I think I will hardly get 40 marks if I am lucky I cried so much after this exam because I need a B overall and can't get it now.....
    SAMEEEE! i also needed a B - not even a low B like a middle B and i dont think ive got that at all! life ruiner that exam was u probably have more marks than you think because sometimesyou dont remember some of the questions

    No I don't think so....I only got marks in question 1 and siRNA question....I think I lost all the marks in pupa's question and the rest was like...you can say I got 2 marks average on each question and the essay was okay...I think I will get around 15-18 marks there.....

    even though i did the dna essay i think you shud get high marks out of scientific content which is out of 16
    the rest depends on how you wrote the essay and was the essay relevant
    Thanks.

    haha same i've had so many nightmares about results day in which i've missed by grade in biology! well it was 62 for an A last year and that paper was a nice one i think! this paper was horrible and i think they will definatly be low! a unit 4 paper was once 38 marks (might be a mark of so out) for an A when they are usually much higher so lowering the grade boundries on a hard paper does happen!!

    well it was 62 last year i think so it could well be around the 55 mark! i need a high C to get my A but i don't think i've even got that! which essay did you do? I did cycles and i think that went well but the exam was awful! i got an A* on my mock so was feeling confident for it but literally came out shaking ha! really messed up the questions! I can't remember all the questions sorry but what you wrote seemed pretty good to me
    i'm still kicking myself cus i got the first 2 marker wrong as i changed it last minute :mad: damnnn exams! so weird what the wait for results does to you, i'm still obsessing about exams i have no control of :P

    haha i know how u feel! i needed a low B but i really really doubt ive got that ! im kicking myself about sososo many questions! and i need an A in this or no uni for mee ! i also did the cycles essay which went quite well but i didnt realte to the wierd sentence in the actual title so im guessing i lose relevance marks right? otherwise i tried to write as much as i could. some people i know found it easier but lets hope the grade boundaries do get lower! with last years grade boundaries theres no chance of me getting an A

    I need exactly 80% which is I think 112 UMS but I just cannot see that happening. I also think the grade boundaries will be higher although I really hope I'm wrong, I think it may be about 2 or 3 marks higher so no good for me What about you?

    i need 107 ums but i think the grade boundaries will be lower. because someone sed that the chief examiner said that it may be 56 for an A . but knowing aqa a B could be 53 for all we know.

    this exam depends on if i go to uni this year or not

    I have no idea, it was a brutal paper, so I think it will be lower. If its not lower than about 55 marks for an A then I'm screwed. They really need to improve their exam papers.
