    Yeah, I did Edexcel French. I found it harder than a lot of the past papers and mocks I've done. The last listening question about the drinks I completely guessed. I heard about two answers and made up the rest :confused: You?
    I did the Edexcel French Higher tier. I genuinely didn't find it as hard as when I did last years paper as a mock but french is my best subject :/ I didn't like the reading question where it asked for two positive aspect about buying books online, it really confused me. Plus the cross box question that had something to do with car share in it was nasty!

    Hi,

    With the 3-4 markers they include it in the question. For example, they could ask, 'Religious believers should not eat meat'. What are your opinions? Explain your opinion. With this type of question you don't have to refer to a religious teaching or quote. However, if they ask you a question like 'Explain why some religious believers think that human life is more valuable than animal life. Refer to religious beliefs and teachings in your answer.', you MUST use religious quotes or teachings.

    5 MARKERS - My teacher said that AQA had just recently added these into the exam paper. She told us just to approach them as you would with a 6 marker. That's all. She says that way you would have secured the 5 marks that you need to get the top grades (A/A*).

    Hope that clarified any doubts.
    Good Luck!
    will they have 5 markers as well as 6 mark questions do you know?

    One of the last questions on my listening paper was about the advantages and disadvantages of different drinks, like fruit juice and coffee. (Honestly, it was really weird.) And my reading was on some random celebration and an article about smoking.

    I think I put something ridiculous like gene switching? So like the switched off ones might be the ones that the drug accept? LOL - bringing 456 into it xD
    Everyone I've spoken to has written something different ahah wow, I wrote about immune systems and side effects (nothing to do with genes but I just wrote from the spec ahaha)

    I'm not sure if it's right, it might scrape one mark but I've no idea how you could get three marks on it... oh well, the grade boundaries should be decent then

    How are you feeling for chemistry on thursday?
