    What about the rest of the grade boundaries? How many marks do you think for an A, B or C? It would be good if the grade boundaries were low but there were some easy questions. Although, the last question was hard about the plant plankton!

    Btw which box did you pick for the very last question about the pyramid of Biomass? I put box 1 but I have doubts now as it is currently disputable whether it was box 1 or 3.

    Undoubtedly, I was baffled for a bit.

    I hope C1 and P1 aren't that hard, otherwise I am doomed!

    Also, if you get C's in all the exams but an A in your ISA what sort of grade would you expect to get?

    In my experience, chem and phys are generally much easier It's basically because biology usually have a lot of application questions which many people find difficult.

    I find chemistry really hard to get my head around though! I started revising a while ago but the things I revised don't seem hugely important and don't seem to come up in the past papers often! What are the main topics you suggest I should revise?!

    I found the questions in the paper to be ok. I did it as a retake tho, and I had a better feeling about this paper than the one I did in Year 10. So finger crossed...

    Generally, they bring up crude oil stuff, almost always is a balancing question, limestone etc. But don't be fooled by thinking the small topics won't come up - I did that for my mock. Usually the very small things can come up as many small questions that make up a large sum of the paper.

    If they're a high C, for all of them, then a B seems appropriate. In my situation, I know I'll get a B for Biology, and probably medium B's for Chem/Phy, but I got a really high A* for my ISA, hence can comfortably get an A. I am sure you get one overall grade.

    my teacher says that you would need to get at least 25 marks to get a C grade for each exam paper... this is for the higher tier only

    I think it will be a bit lower like around 20

    NO! that was THE easiest paper I have ever sat, a lot more easier than the past papers and mocks I've done!
