    No problem!
    Bio papers went so smoothly to be honest, people seemed unconfident on tsr but I'm sorta convinced I'll get A* in both. Exams themselves were decent, there were a few unorthodox questions that tend to annoy, but having done enough past papers it should have been fine!
    C2 went well too, much of the questions were the same typical stuff that gets repeated. C3 was the only paper so far that got me, that 5 marker was the stupidest question ever written... I imagine A* will be low in that, probably got around 45 though, maybe a mid A if not borderline A* !
    How did yours go?
    I thought the chemistry exams were really good! Found B2 really weird. I think i got 47 in C2 and C3 so hopefully A* and 43 in B2 so literally just an A*. B3 may have been 45 not suree!

    My eyes went tired and I started to have a headache in the physics exams so I made loads of avoidable mistakes due to not reading graphs and diagrams properly (in the calculations and drawings) until it got to the point I guessed the Fleming's left hand rule question (I drew a downward arrow), since I thought 'I might as well try my bet- it's a 50% chance of getting it right anyway).
    I also did downward arrow as used unconventional current as thought that's the real one after all but you're meant to use conventional current apparently and I mucked up P2 gravitational potential energy q by crossing out the right answer which would then change the height question as well ugh ! Annoyed at myself

    I got the following questions wrong (probably many more) in P2:

    Seatbelt question- probably lost one mark or two
    Model replacement (Atom) question- lost two marks
    Experiment improvement question- lost one mark
    Speed question- lost one mark?
    Conservation of momentum question- probably lost one mark as well

    it doesn't say alumina on My-GCSE Science.com or in the text book or revision guide though
    Yeah you should be okay, alumina isn't on the specification, AQA endorsed te books or revision guides either

    I revised hard for B2 & B3 and felt the exams were quite easy walking out, so I ended up taking Chemistry much less seriously knowing how easy past papers have been!
    C2 was genuinely quite easy, and most of C3 was straightforward as well - it's just that 5 marker that had me questioning my self throughout the damn answer! Everybody seems to have got different calculations on the last few questions and now I'm somewhat unsure of them as well.
    I imagine A* will probably be like 47 for C2 and 43 for C3, probably got about 52 and 42 respectively. Onto Unit 1s!

    Which was weird bc I always thought of Biology being easier than all the others...

    I did Additional Science last year, so I've only done Unit 3 so far and here's how I found them:
    Easiest: B3
    P3
    Hardest C3

    I feel like I haven't done as well in these though. I'm hoping for an A/A* but I fear I might get lower

    Is there an unofficial mark scheme for Chemistry Unit 3 2015 paper? If so please can someone send me the link. Sorry this is a bit late, I've just been worrying about it! Thanks

    You're very unlikely to see one now if there hasn't been one yet. The exam was ages ago, people will most likely have forgotten most of the questions.

    I'm a little confused on how the AQA GCSE Science Triple Award Works...I know you get the Averages of B1, C1 and P1 - Core Science, B2, C2 and P2 - Additional Science, and B3, C3 and P3 for Further Additional science.
    Do you ALSO get averages for B1, B2 and B3 - Biology, C1, C2 and C3 - for Chemistry and P1, P2 and P3 - Physics?
    Is this correct or is it JUST Core, Additional and Further Additional?
    Thank you

    If you do triple in one year you get a biology chemistry and physics grade

    Since I did Additional last year, and I did Core and Futher Additional this year; I won't get a Biology, Chemistry and Physics grade?
