10:30pm I think.
I believe we CAN talk about the exam from NOW! yes! So how did everyone find it? Mixture of top and bottom questions or all top, all bottom or 2 and 2 or 3 and 1? Hardest section? Time management? Hard or Easy? Out of ten...

Possible grade boundaries?

I thought the exam was incredibly easy. I chose the second option for every section, and found none of the questions particularly challenging. I got 94 UMS in the first unit, and the exam today certainly felt like it went better than that, so hopefully I've secured an A*. I've got to say though, my hand was killing after all that writing.

Grade boundaries wise I think it'll be similar to other years. I imagine the A* boundary will be between 72-74/80.

My hand also was suffering after the exam. I did the questions where it asked us to define SITUATION ETHICS, FORGIVENESS, CAPITAL PUNISHMENT AND THE BIBLE

I think mine were Situation Ethics, Environment, Forgiveness and I can't remember the last one. I do remember for the last section that the other questions were on the social impacts of drug use, why we need laws and whether religious people should support capital punishment.

I do think it was much easier than the Unit 3 one on monday, possibly because as it is about society and after all you can just use your common sense in some of the questions.
I think I did all the first questions except of the last one.
And I'm feeling quite proud, as it's my only RE exam, that I finished in time and wrote all the points for every question, but I do have to admit my arm was killing :>

In my school the exam hall had a couple of year 10s doing resits but was mostly full of very nervous year 9s sitting our first exam!

I chose the top one for each section (I think the key words were the Bible, Conservation, something which I can't remember and Capital Punishment) and it was generally quite easy although I found the first section the hardest because I couldn't remember any of the Christian teachings! I think I've done we'll but unfortunately I have to wait till the 27th of August for my results! ARGH

But I agree with you all - it felt like there was steam coming out of my pen and my arm was killing me afterwards!!!
