I found it alright-ish but I'm so stupid seeing all those blank pages at the end of the paper I assumed that was the end so I missed out the six marker on speciation.

I found the B3 paper much easier than the B2 paper for some reason

I found them both okay - realized I made some stupid mistakes now but doesn't matter - fairly confident

Some of the questions on B2 were really weird, and for some reason B3 was much easier as it was mainly about humans and the environment!

lots of people I know found B3 a lot harder but I definitely found B3 easier! B2 was a lot more focused on experiments I found.
I was surprised that there were two 6 mark questions on both papers - never seen that before!

Last year it was 36 for an A*, 33 for an A, 27 for a B and 21 for a C. I think it would be around the same!

I know I didn't like that fact that it was all basically on experiments as I did so much biology revision for that exam!!

I'm annoyed because I completely missed out the shrimp page (which was 7 marks I've heard!). I should have been more careful - but why would they put two short question on one page and leave the next page free!?.. stupid if you ask me. Does anyone know if there's an official mark scheme - i'm feeling pretty crap right now and wanna see if i still managed an A.

I did a lot of revision for it too, and although it was largely based on experiments, I'd say you still needed to have a good knowledge of the syllabus to do well.
