    Yeah I was hoping for lower grade boundaries this year but this is just plain stupid. I don't even know if I am going to pass Biology and Chemistry now.

    hmm thing is i found the chem exam mega hard as well and reading people discussing their answers on here just depressed me! the only peace of mind i can get is that i need 54/120 UMS for the grade i need.

    Biology was kind of okay simply because i really liked the DNA essay!

    Unfortunately I didn't do so well and I don't see how I could have revised any differently for the exam. Good luck for results day

    When I click on the link, all I get is grey page. The Biology exam was OK, chemistry was complete murder. I'm going to cry now

    I'm not liking the grade boundaries.. Bye bye Uni! However, for the BIOL5 paper I'm really hoping my essay bumps up my marks as, from memory, it was the only part of the paper that went well! We'll know this time tomorrow!

    Even if you get 25/25 for the essay, you still need 40/75 on the rest of the paper to get an A and thats 53%

    The chief examiner of biology did a talk at my school a few weeks ago and he said that this exam is harder than last years and provisionally an A would be 56 marks. It is lovely and low so don't worry about uni
    So much for his claim then (assuming this poster wasn't trolling)........56 wouldn't even get you a B.

    The grade boundaries for this particular unit are just sickening. :cry:
