    I didn't leave any lines between my answers in the aqa 12 page answer booklet, I just started my next answer where the next line with question number boxes next to it was... Is this really bad? I asked the head of external exams at my school and she said not to worry but I'm panicking. I didn't see that it said to leave at least two lines between answers on the front of the booklet. Is it important to do that? What is it for? All my answers had the question numbers next to the first line of them. Does that mean I'll be ok?

    As long as you've put the question number in the margins, I don't see why that should be a problem..

    I did the exam too, how did you find it?

    The exam wasn't what I expected it to be like. In all honesty, I thought this paper was a lot harder than last year's one. What topics did you do?

    I did the following:

    1. Origins of the First World War (4 marker was alright; 6 marker was alright; and the 10 marker was good).
    2. League of Nations (4 marker was alright; 6 marker was alright; and the 10 marker was good).
    3. Origins of the Cold War (4 marker was alright I suppose; 6 marker wasn't too bad; and the 10 marker was RUBBISH. Thing is, I knew what I wanted to say, but I only had 10 minutes. When I read over it quickly at the end, it sounded crap and it didn't relate back to the question).

    Oh dear excuse me, I didn't do AQA; I did OCR.

    But your exam really does sound tricky. The only thing I can relate to is that I did a part on the League of Nations too.

    Don't worry - I'm sure you did great!

    Lucky you! I need 48/60 in the exam to get an A* as my coursework somehow ended up being a C, even though I got full UMS marks in the exam:confused:
