    I have BIOL5 on wednesday too! Disaster D:
    I made sure I was equally ready for Psych and Bio last night, so I could give myself all of today for Psych and all of tomorrow for Bio. (Aside from during the Psych exam!)
    Good luck everyone - early nights, need to be well rested.

    Yeah, it is right.
    The grade boundaries are really low on this exam because well.....it's hard, and people do badly... ha.

    I've only slept for 3 hours. I've been doing clinical, still have no idea on synoptic so... cram for the next couple of hours. This exam proper sucks :-/

    Why not reduce the content and make the grade boundaries higher? It will be the same difficulty, but then there would be more emphasis on learning and understanding specific information than learning simply to pass an exam. I thought the whole point of study was understanding. Ugh!

    For Edexcel: morning exams may not be discussed until 12:00 midnight (BST) and afternoon exams until 4:30 AM (BST).
    Is BST the same as GMT?

    Ahhh sorry if any of that was me. Luckily I won't be able to ramble as I'm planning on deep hibernation to recover from the mass revision sessions recently.

    i cant see any Sigs. Even tho i swear i checked it on the other day. :/ ill have to check!
    Ouchie, got an alert & my first negative rep. Didn't realise Edexcel did exams across the world! Just went ahead and did what I normally do for all exams. Shame I was on my phone really, could have got rid of it sooner! :/ Not a good start... only just getting into TSR!

    So... er... what to talk about while we are waiting? I'm so bored I started talking to my dog. :/

    As we can talk about Unit 3-

    Did you think there was a mistake with one f the questions in Criminal? Either that or it was just poorly ordered. I can't rememebr the exact wording but it was on media violence, and there were two small questions, basically reworded. That seemed to be the only difference.

    I found the whole of Criminal to be extremely poorly worded. I had to re-read about four questions several times to understand exactly what they wanted. Frustrating because I only got a mid-C last time and need an A.

    I found it badly worded too, but hopefully I interpreted it correctly. I'm sure it was the same question really. I'm sure you'll get the A. Compared to previous Unit 3's that didn't seem to bad. The questions could have been way worse, even though it was badly worded.

    What do you think the boundaries will be like? High? Low?
