Anyone else doing the exam tomorrow.

Maybe we can ask each other question as a way of revising and mark it etc.

Worst exam I have ever sat, out of all the questions I've practiced in the 3 years I've done it none came up even worded similarly, barely any case study questions and everything was awfully vague - the boundaries better be low

Don't worry I think they are low, I've heard a lot of people struggled with it. I totally messed up the last question just hoping you don't need too many marks for a good grade

That was literally impossible. Nothing I've done in the last two years came up, absolutely awful...

...;w;..That test was the demon of all tests. What happened to case studies?!? Our school taught us the spec wrongly, every question was completely differen't from anything we had ever done. Everyone in my year, literally everyone who did the exam was either:
1) Crying
2) Guessing every question
3) Crossing out all the answers
4) Just staring at it like..o-o....what..
No one in my year found it easy, and majority of people think they failed it. I usually get A*'s, but this..Sheesh. It's not that I didn't know what the questions meant, it's just I didn't know how to answer them. Some of the topics covered we hadn't been taught in years, or in great enough detail, and a lot of it required general knowledge, nothing to do with case studies like we had been taught.

BUUT, hopefully the mark boundaries will be low, but then pretty sure I will still get a low grade. That was a ridiculous paper, and the spec and question style was different from anything we had learnt.

Yeah so hard. Wording aswell was ridiculous. Question about developing countries and earthquake was awful. What did everyone else think they got?

Hated it! Absolute nonsense, questions beyond vague and I didn't have a choice but to just guess all of it! I usually get A*s as well?!

Phew might be able to scrape an A* if I'm lucky then, the people and the planet paper will hopefully be better!

Most of the people I knew were saying they all thought they've got half marks (usually we all do quite well), let's hope people and the planet actually has some content we learnt!! :3
