    what were the questions for section A and B? I answered the politics question but i've actually forgotten what the other question was I found politics to be alright, it was a similar past paper question i think so it wasn't too bad, Hope the grade boundaries will be low, i think most people found it OK but they were difficult

    oh wow that's pretty low. I think i did well in them. I spent too long on them though which left me with less time on politics but i yeah they were pretty solid i think. How were you before going in the exam? like grading/past papers wise!

    well i was smashing all the revision questions and a few past paper qs with the school and that but i found the qs a bit weird, i was quite confident though but seriously ran out of time, i was hitting like B's and A's in other past paper qs but needed to organise time managment, how about you? How much did you write for each question?

    Ah well if you were hitting that and the boundaries are quite low why wouldn't you get an A!? I was about the same, High B's and Low A's. Um, it varied. I did 2 pages for the first A question, about 2 and half for the B, and then a page for the next A (cos of time) and only a page and half for the B. i seriously just crammed it, with facts and relating it to the question so no idea how well i did overall

    Yeah, I know... I did:

    Why were social reforms introduced? (24)

    Was WWI the main influence on lives of people in Britain?(36)

    And foreign policy was appeasement for 24 marks and fear of Germany for 36.
