    Same.

    Almost all the ppl targetted A's at my school got E's and U's.

    Looks like i was right based on the grade boundaries. This was a hard paper.

    I got a U mate, even though I had A's for my Essay's and Mocks. I knew all the study and applied it to the real paper and this is what I get!

    I also got a c, 5 off a b, however 22 people from my class didn't pass so it must have been a stupidly hard exam!

    I was predicted an A and came out with a D. The thing that perplexes me about this situation is that I came out of the exam feeling confident I had answered all of the questions well and thoroughly. Hell, I had 10 minutes to spare at the end after checking my answers. Perhaps it was poor exam technique, but regardless I was pretty gutted. Looks like this Summer is going to be pretty packed.

    I honestly thought I'd done really well in this paper, I don't understand what I did wrong.. Getting the paper back to have a look! Have a great teacher, revised loads and got worst than on my mocks... Honestly think something strange is going on here... My really smart friends mostly got E's and U's, even on different exams in which they should be getting C's! :confused:

    I am in the same situation as you, I am going to resit in May/June. I was really shocked and I do not seem to know where I went wrong. I am glad it wasn't only me. I was getting A's prior to the exam in Past papers. I was getting full marks in the 12 mark assessments in timed condition in class. I honestly just don't know what the problem was.

    Personally I found it quite easy I got a B and was getting D and E's in class so I'm over the moon but this exam was by far the easiest I think

    That's the exact same as me! I had a good teacher, did well on the mocks but got an E! I really thought I did well so I don't know what happened...

    I got 70 UMS marks which was a low B I wouldn't say this paper was particularly easy compared to all the past papers i did in class, in which i got A's in every single one. Although i was expecting to do much worse so a B's ok

    For all of those using the bigger books, i would definitely recommend just using the aqa psychology A revision guide as your main source and then using the big book to supplement the extra information, because it breaks it down and gets to the point more easily. From experience, i've always used this method in all subjects because it's less stressful and works with my brain more effectively.

    I scraped an A, but loads of people from my class who were on As and Bs in mocks came out with Ds and Es.

    My teacher said that it was the easiest unit 1 paper she'd ever seen (not that any of us agreed with that! ) so perhaps that's reflected in the grade boundaries.

    My teacher predicted me a D and I got D's and E's in the mock exam but I started revising really hard and came out with an A. I thought the paper was okay, i got 84 ums out of 100
