    What did everybody think of the exam?!

    This was posted from The Student Room's iPhone/iPad App

    Wasn't THAT hard
    Wasn't THAT easy

    I only revised the first 4 chapters, didn't have time for more.

    I took early in Jan and got a B. I wouldn't be that displeased if I didnt improve it, which I probably didnt. Think Jan's paper was much easier.

    What questions did you do?

    What exam board?
    If you're talking about Edexcel, we're not allowed to discuss it until tomorrow because it's taken internationally, there are people worldwide who still haven't done the exam.

    Nope I'm talking AQA.

    First time I've done it, I think it went well, I answered the EU Turkey case study and the first questions for the essay, the recession/low interest rates. What about you?

    I did the exam, I thought the turkey question was good apart from working out the percentage decrease - what answer did you get for that?

    For the second question I did Protectionism (15marker) and Free Trade (25maker), Looking back, i would probably have done the recession question?

    I didn't think it was too mad, although I had English LIterature in the morning which we hideous! hehe!

    Did Globalization (I revised Globilisation in January, and have not even looked at EU so stayed clear of EU question).

    Did recession/low interest rates for second half.
