And for the culture paper on section B i did the Q6- about 'reality' television shows, so i just babbled on about big brother hehe!

Science and maths went well but really rubbish at essay writing and knowing what words mean!

Did the AQA one.
for last two essay quesitons, wrote about half a page for each? i didnt know how to get marks on em it was a load of poo. my role model would not be a multimillionaire like david beckham, but someone in my everyday life with a positive outlook on life however also based in reality; someone i could relate to and realistically aspire to?!

and the shoite about celebs?
i really wanted to say "girls should not aspire to sluts in music videos cause theyre all idiots" but chickened out, so said you shouldnt criticise them to the extent that it brings them down as people, but they're not really the best role models. my grammar was rubbish even though i used to be good at writing. Wrote like a stupid person.

Was it YOUR role model that the question asked for? Whoops. I wrote about role models in general...it was such a hard paper! And to think I originally thought GS didn't require much knowledge.

yeah thats fine it was something like "describe your role model" so basically the qualities you look for in a role model. it works either way

You didn't have to discuss your role model. The question was "...discuss what qualities you would look for in a good role model ..." I didn't really mention anyone in particular for that question.

I thought the one before it was the hardest one ... "Identify and explain three criticisms that the author makes of the effectiveness of current role models".

Unit 2 (AQA A) was dodgy! a lot of the maths stuff confused me, but I managed to bullsiht a lot of the answers. the stuff on population was ok once i got my head round it.

and role models was easy! wrote about a page for 1 and 2, and a page each for 3 and 4. question three involved a lot of flattery towards JK Rowling! lol

I only had one question which included billions, and there was only one answer that looked right so i *think* i was okay.

the question with the rectangle inside the circle totally stumped me, guessed, then came out and realised it was triganomitry! doh

I did AQA as well Units 1 & 2. The rolemodel paper the writing part I ran out of time and wrote loads. However the problem was that I wrote loads of rubbish since I had no idea what to write. The few ideas I managed to come up with I tried not to repeat myself, but I think I did anyway.

The multiple choice was hardest on the science part I thought. I guessed quite a few, hope they were right :p:

i like totally failed it and i'm going get an F. it was too fricking hard. they should make it easier so that it is accessible to the full range of candidates. the current level is an outrage, i felt so demeaned.
