    Edexcel. I did all the past papers, but we hadn't been taught citizenship before. We'd spent three years doing the coursework. :mad:

    These're the ones I'm not sure of:

    The Afghan boy was not sent back because the Home Office did not know he was here.
    Privacy disputes are settled in the High Court (this one seems almost certainly wrong).
    An example of a privacy dispute is: celebrities being angry at tabloids, but they can write what they want because of freedom of speech.
    An example of a UK charity: British Red Cross, helps different countries during times of disaster, vaccinates against disease.
    Legislation in the UK to protect human rights: Equal Pay Act.

    If you know the answers to any of these, please let me know. Otherwise, best of luck with the rest of your exams!

    Ridiculously easy. Once you master the art bs'ing you can get A's in RS and english. The mark schemes literally say 'they may say this but give marks if you think it's right.' WJEC also ask the same questions almost every year.
    Alright for some. :mad::eek::unimpressed:
    When you do the AQA exam board, it is ridiculously hard.
    The questions are completely and utterly different each year for AQA.

    It was easy. Definitely. but i just read the examiner report stupid me and you are supposed to give your opinion. My teacher taught us your opinion doesn't matter it's the content. (( Well according to edexcel it does. She said you can't answer in a general way you have to refer to a religion. Oh and no one told me to use paragraphs. I hate teachers sooo much! I do the right thing on my own, they say something, I change what I do and it turns out my common sense at the start was right. Great. Now to find motivation for Biology. .

    the edexcel re exam was very easy..... the easiest paper in all the 5 years.
    i'm either getting a very high B or a low A. Reply to this so we can discuss the paper!
    I found it easy too but it turns out my exam technique was all wrong. I was supposed to give MY opinion and I shouldve used paragraphs. It's not nice when you work your ass off for nothing.

    Yeah hopefully. I just wrote something about worshipping God in different ways and how it makes people feel closer to him.
