    I thought the same! The 12 marker was difficult too!!
    Patently
    some people are saying with was a mistake in the one of the test for sociology ocr I think in the pre relase or the basic in one of the 12 marks.In the pre relase they got the seconday source wrong let just hope the grade boundriases are low as the test was sooo hard.

    Same I did both of those but instead of higher I did foundation (French) the paper was relatively easy I just hated the advantage and disadvantage. Anyways, biology (OCR) KILLED ME! I revised for cloning evolution practically the whole of b3 and b2 I was so confident I would get a b or a c. The paper was hard, I'm so upset. Water, kidney, white blood cells, carbon cycle WHERRE WERE THEY! Let's hope physics and chemistry will be good and easy. I'm so upset I literally wanted to cry in the exam. Ugh enough about me. How did you find it?

    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?
    Honestly, not very confident. Although I'm getting straight B's in chemistry, I'm getting below 30 marks so yeah... little bit worrying

    will they have 5 markers as well as 6 mark questions do you know?
    Hey!

    My RS teacher said that it really unpredictable. This was seen with the paper in 2013, which did have them, but wasn't seen in the 2014 paper.

    She told us they might try and throw them in but don't let them have one over you! When you see (5 marks) just erase it with your mind and put (6 marks). They're just trying to put you off.

    Hope that answers your question!

    Keep me posted on how it goes!

But overall i should get an A because a got A* in both my french writing assessment and Bs in my speaking assessment. (ᵔᴥᵔ)

    It's not that I got stuck, I knew all the content but I didn't read te questions properly and also my handwriting was hideous so I'm scared they won't be able to read it
    Exam boards have said in the past that the examiners have been used to seeing different types of handwriting so don't worry they'll understand your writing how are you feeling about the C1 - 3 and P1 - 3 exams?

    in my French exam on a number of questions I would tick the box and cross it out and tick another, is this going to cause issues in scanning?

    Yeah I did the ethics papers.....and it was honestly surprisingly okay (except for the weird part E in Religion and Equality where it asked for one thing for three marks???) How did you find it?

    Eh, same but not really looking forward to biology tomorrow - but it sounds like you've got that exam technique down

    Good luck for tomorrow!!
    Hey, how did you find the Biology papers? I thought B2 was a little hard but most of B3 was quite good! Just hoping for low grade boundaries! And time to focus on Chemistry now (unit 3 is the worst).
    I'm not sure which question you mean on the Ethics paper for 3 marks.. Was it explaining civil partnerships? Not sure! And in the religion and equality 12 marker was it 'Christians should NOT treat everyone equally'? I thought it was surprisingly ok as well haha.

    I know how you feel! Most of the stuff I'd revised wasn't even in the Biology exam. I was hoping for a 6 mark on something like ADH, immunity, or natural selection... Not the nitrogen cycle or that awkward triplet question
