    I just defined awe and wonder and said that the world is beautiful because it is god given etc and i said it was right to teach that life begins at conception because if people believe that, guilt would be worse if mothers were to abort- would be seen as killing a living being then you could use sikh and buddhist quotes to back that view. not sure if that's right though :/ only had a few mins left at the end but think it went well
    yeah i said the world is beautiful and there is so much undiscovered but my friends put stuff like its the only planet where human life can live, is a gift from god so i won't have got full marks on that. and ahhh thats a good point, wish i'd have put that in. we dont do sikhs but buddhists believe life starts before conception

    The C1, C2, C3 paper I found it fairly easy. Both the Biology and Chemistry contained a lot of data questions. The 6 mark questions on the Nitrogen Cycle (in biology) and the one on the rocks magnetism (in Chem) I found the hardest on the paper.

    On the Religious AQA paper, was the abortion question about the different alternative choices to abortion e.g. adoption, or on why a women may chose to have an abortion?

    I'm SO glad I did my OCR 21st century science "Core" exams (B1 - B3, C1 - C3, P1 - P3) last year (year 10)!! Since I'm doing the Further modules (B7, C7, P7), I think that a huge load was lifted off my back because of the early exam... I think I did pretty good, too!
    As per the exams this year, I think I could have done better with RS (AQA - short course). With French and ICT, I did my best and am pretty confident. I'm nervous about the English Literature exam, though...

    Yep, I did. How did it go for you? Since ICT is mostly logic, I think it went well for me...

    How did people find the OCR 21st century chemistry paper? I felt it was quite dodgy - not sure how well i did to be honest. But any opinions on the physics? what do people think's gonna come up?

    I got frustrated too -where were the maths questions??! I didn't understand some of the shorter questions and what they were getting at and I hated the 5 mark question. Definitely lost at least 6 marks (I know for sure), probably many more too haha.

    I know, I spent ages revising masses in reactions but none of those questions came up! I got PbO15 for the empirical formula question, which doesn't sound right....

    Subject: C2 and C3
    Feeling:

    C2 was okay, the questions were sometimes hard to understand as they were so vague. C3: It was annoying because hardly any equations/maths came up and that's where I would've picked up a load of marks Didn't like the 6 mark and definitely got the 5 mark wrong as it was a load if waffle; what did you guys put for the 5 mark q?
    Posted from TSR Mobile
    Yh i pretty much just waffled through that one and made up some advantages and disadvantages for it. The only decent mark i could think of was that "method 1 has to be filtered and not all of the precipitate may go through and this will affect the results and accuracy of the experiment" apart from that it was all just lying really :P

    Easily the worst question in the paper........

    Afraid that's wrong.

    I believe the answer is Pb2O3 but I didn't get that.

    I got 1 and 1.5 so like one Pb1.5O
    Which I got confused on.. Apparently I needed to times that by 2

    It seems to be they've just made the 2015 exams extremely difficult, even last years were okay.

    I checked my answer with the method I learnt from my revision guide as well as the one I was taught in class and I still got PbO15, so I'm not sure what went wrong....
