    I've done my first exam so I'm left with 6.

    If you notice, they're all on 'even' days except the 17th... which is my RE synoptic exam - bear in mind that this exam is often compared to second/third year uni level. I know it's stupid, but for some reason... I believe there is a reason that exam breaks the pattern.

    Perhaps it will be the exam of all exams. The one exam, to rule them all. (If you didn't understand that reference, :facepalm:)

    I didn't mean an admission test xD

    Oxford/Cambridge admission tests are fun - but unfortunately aren't that relevant to exams ^^

    What about like the hardest past paper AQA exam you've done? Because AQA and Edexcel are rather similar in terms of its specification for Maths.

    Hardest AQA exam is definitely last year's physics EMPA.

    Maths I haven't found a paper as difficult as their physics exams haha.

    I meant Maths ^^ I don't do Physics.

    I was asking because it would be good revision to help each other by referring one another to past papers in our own exam boards. Often you find that Edexcel 'steals' questions used in AQA Maths papers (apparently) and vice versa.

    This is however inappropriate for this thread, shall we take it to PM?

    Hey all,

    So I've made quite a significant discovery, for those of you who don't already know of course.

    Now I don't aim to unnecessarily raise your hopes, but the grade boundaries are in general quite low. The highest I've ever seen is 61 for an A* (87%). Last year was 60 marks for an A*!

    For those who got full marks in the coursework, that means we need around 55/56 marks to get an A* overall.

    For those who didn't, if you can't work it out yourself, I'll do it for you, either post your UMS here or PM me

    Pretty damn awesome
