Thanks, good luck to you and everyone else too. I'll just get this ***** sorted in the morning, and then move onto the two hardest physics exams in the afternoon. Woohoo!

So I'm not the only poor sod with economics in the am and physics in the pm. Why is physics starting so damn late anyway?!

What boards you doing Benny? I've got Edexcel for economics and OCR for physics.

Best of luck to everyone!

Yep, exactly the same. Edexcel Economics 6 in the morning and OCR Physics A in the afternoon - unifying concepts and then FFE - I really don't know who thought up that one, <sarcasm>but hats off to them!!!!!!!!!!!!111</sarcasm>

FFE is such a huge module it just ain't fair, and Economics is such a huge EXAM, it just ain't fair.

I've got OCR B, apart from that I've got the same **** day tomorrow as you.

Doesn't compare to my AS's though. I remember being timetabled to have 9 hours of exams on one day. I ended up doing physics the day early, and was left with 6 hours of essays the next day... after that tomorrow will be a walk in the park.

That sounds like a *****. What paper did you do for economics unit 5 last week? I did development economics and the tourism question, went pretty well I think (I hope!).

Do you find that the timing is REALLY tight in the unit 6 exam? I couldn't finish the data response in time in the mock we did. Hopefully there will be one essay I can do without too much trouble, but I'm not so confident for the DR.

Our school did Labour Markets instead of Development Economics. I answered a question on the National Minimum Wage. No I tend to be ok as regards time in paper 6. I have always struggled finishing paper 4 though, and this year was no exception! I was very pressed for time. I answered the DRQ on hospitals.

Did you retake papers 1-3 this summer?

We don't do any papers in January at our school. They reckon it means there is not enough time for teaching or some bull like that.
