    Lol I did that one too. In fact it was the only one I had practiced :awesome: I planned a few others but never wrote them out fully. Although the examiners will probably find a way to explain why nothing I wrote is relevant.

    Really hoping for at least 20 marks on the essay. Then I only need about 35 marks (this is based on the provisional grade boundary for an A) from the rest of the paper to get my A...

    Just did some calculations and 35 marks from the rest of the questions is only about 45% That makes me feel a bit better
    I don't feel that bad about the exam, probably because I can only remember the essay. I'm most worried about physics at the moment.

    same here any answer you think you mite have got right could easily be wrong answer
    eg if you got 15 thats no good but if you got 55 then that mite be nearly an A which is fantastic

    True, but I think my mark is nearer the lower end of the scale rather than the higher end (which isn't any good ).

    i honestly dont have a clue of what i think ive got
    if i was to take a guess i would that questions 1,4,7 and the essay question were good and apart from that ive probable got it all wrong
    but sometimes the 1 markers you think u messed up sometimes be correct answers
    hopefully you would exceed the marks you think got right
    hopefully grade boundaries will be really low so less marks needed to get the same grade
    i also need 100ums+ or no university

    I don't think grade boundaries will be higher, may stay the same or lower.. but not higher... because even though the essay bit was easier, section A was harder... essay only worth 25% and section B 75% if i'm not mistaken... well this is what i always have in my mind to reduce my worrying... I need an overall A too

    Don't worry and stop stressing
    what UMS marks did you get on every unit? 'cause if you got all A's on them then you'll still get an A overall even if you get a high B on this unit..
