    I did context B, got in plenty of analysis and no conclusion ffs might scrape an A :rolleyes:
    Gonna drop econ but a fourth A would have looked great, considering how ECON2 is SOLIDD
    I'm aiming for an A overall in econ but unit 1 was a bit of a slip up. I'm stronger in unit 2 so I just gotta hope its enough to put me up to an A.

    Absolute gift that question:' annoyed that there was absolutely nothing on P and S waves though -.- and not much on plate margins... All that revision wasted:'
    I know so annoying -.- the 8 marker was quite good 😊

    OCR geography was OK, although the river short answer questions were a bit iffy. Glad the 9 marker was nice, and I loved the coasts essay!

    Econ 1 was mixed. Some nasty questions in the multiple choice, twelve markers both were weird. Both 5 markers and 8 markers easy as usual. One of the essays was terrible and I pity anyone who did it (the one on inequality).
    Do you mean the one of housing differences? Cause that was ace, the cross rail was a pooohead

    Yeah that was good, but for the 'volcanic activity' bit, I only talked about Kimberlite pipes..:L I didn't mention anything about magma erupted at MOR's, so I might have lost a mark or two.. > but hey ho:P
    yeah the whole thing was focused on continental drift -.- they just asked similar questions over and over so I thought it did it wrong:')

    My teachers have told me that they will probably run "legacy" papers specifically for resits... I really hope this is the case especially for the way I think some papers may end up going...

    Did anyone else do the OCR F963/02 British History Enquiries paper today (England and A New Century)? From who I spoke to they said they found it difficult to group the sources for part b. I went for B,C & E agree that determined leadership was the most important but A and D disagree. What did you guys do?

    Guys what did you put for the question about strengths of Strange Situation or something like that?
    I said that:

    Although it has been found to be innacurate in other cultures, it is the only measure of human attachment we have that is widely used to assess attachment type in infants.

    I cant remember the rest.xD

    Hey, we've been listing unofficial mark schemes as they come out in this thread: http://www.thestudentroom.co.uk/show...7&goto=newpost

    Unofficial mark schemes are a community effort so look out for them around the forum and contribute in making them if you can :woo:

    Good luck with the rest of your exams
