Hi, so today I just did the B4, C4, P4 exam and I was wondering if anybody has a mark scheme or knows where I could get one from.
They added a new section at the end of the exam called Section D, they've never done that before, have they?
Anyhow, that mark scheme would be lovely!
I just want to know how well (or not so well) I've done.
Thanks

Hi, just wanted to know what anyone thought of this exam. I thought the exam was really hard and it was ambiguous of OCR to include silly things into the exam but not all of the specification and facts that we were supposed to learn such as the test for a potassium molecule using a flame... Flame turns lilac. I did not get the section D as it seemed to be what we covered in b3 as well as some sections from b5... What did everyone else think of the exam? I am very worried that I haven't got a B in this exam and it will annoy me because I have got B's in all of my other additional science combined exams and to get a C on this paper would really annoy me.

I think you're talking about a different exam. This is a post for the OCR GATEWAY ADDITIONAL SCIENCE (B4, C4, P4) exam which took place today.

I think I did the b4, C4 and p4 exam, did your exam say new speciman at the too of the exam booklets first page? The exam I took had the biology 6 mark question on earthworms, chemistry 6 marks on the periodic table people I can't remember what the physics was on :P i'm just really worried because everything that I studied didn't come up in the exam :-(

The mark scheme will be around the following:
A* - 54
A - 44
