If you're referring to the AQA one, I found it really easy other than the how grandparents can help the family or something - I realise afterwards that childcare was the obvious answer but I said something about knowledge and experience. Luckily I finished it all too but in the 12 markers I only referred to 1 of my own ideas rather than 2.

I did the AQA one too and I found it really easy too!
But I don't think I included enough points in the divorce 12 mark question- the last one in Family. I think I included enough points for agree but not the disagree side

I was actually really happy with the exam in general, but I always expect the exams for this year to be harder than the exams for previous years
Surprised ethical issues didn't come up :confused:

Do you think there will be really low grade boundaries, because everyone found it easy?

If people found the exam easy, it would normally mean that the exam was easier so the grade boundaries will be higher!!

I overall found the exam easy apart from the one question in education about how schools/governments could encourage girls to take physics??? The wording of the question really threw me and I only left myself 2 minutes at the end to write the answer!
Also I completely messed up the timing, I wrote the families 12 marker in 3 minutes...

Great to see that I appear to be the only one that failed

I found the paper virtually impossible - one of the hardest I've ever done for Sociology.

My Yr.10 mock was an A grade; then A* in Yr.11 - but after my performance in this one, I'd be surprised if I even get a B. Everyone is saying that they found it easy ?!?!

Is it possible I just feel like I did worse than I actually did?

The grade boundaries will probably be VERY high this year considering most people found it easy

It was about defining what family diversity was.

I put where there are many different types of families within society. E.g that there is now more reconstituted and lone parent families due to the increase in divorce rates (not sure about the explanation thou)
