    Felt like I knew the answers for most of them, but I don't know if I wrote the right things

    Yes, you wouldn't believe the amount of essays I gave my teacher on Official Statistics (he kept telling me to focus on the "main methods", but look how the tables turned )

    Not Sure:
    Can't really compare answers as most people have a difference of opinion on some questions. I was aiming for full UMS, that certainly hasn't happened.

    Exam Subjects & Boards: Spanish OCR (Reading, writing &speaking) - Not awful considering I technically didn't even study for it - hope I got a C or above.
    Physics OCR B (G491 Advancing Physics) - Terrible, getting ~90% in mocks but hate the paper, didn't feel nice. Anywhere from A to U, your guess as good as mine!
    Maths AQA (C1 & C2) - Both decent, quite easy and definitely expect 65-75 in both.
    Chemistry OCR (F321) - Hmmm... Just done it, felt okay, but messed up on a 5 mark question (titration) probablycus I panicked for time. Hopefully still A.

    Overall, alright so far. Got 6 more exams to go but a 11-day break (Half term). Need to do well in G492 & F322 to make sure I get a good grade.

    Feeling: :mad:
    Failed. Nothing like any past paper I've done (back to 2008) and it completely threw me. I don't know why because on the face of it, it shouldn't be too difficult.

    Felt EXACTLY the same! G491 is so awkward, and most of it is only physics by the most stupidly broad definition! It probably single-handedly ruined my career prospects, the only marks I knew I got were on the first unit questions.

    it was completely different to all the past papers, it didn't go bad it was just very weird, the timing was horrible and there were so many questions that were only 1 mark which on previous papers were like 2 marks. They tried to pull out very obscure questions.
