    I chose the Teleological argument, and Aristotle because the other two were just big no's haha xD How about you?
    Teleological which I quite liked and then Kant.
    For teleological did you about half explaining what it was and the half Hume's criticisms? Or did you write more for one of them?

    I wrote more explaining it because Hume was the major part in B and I didn't want to keep repeating myself, but i'm not sure whether that was a really bad idea and I should have just repeated :/

    That was awful. That response ""what and how will you eat in the future" 40 makrs for that. Are the examiners f**king mad? What sort of BS is that!?
    Yes agree

    So, in order to keep the sentiment thread clear of discussion, use this thread to discuss how your exams went!

    I've had 3 exams so far: Film Studies (WJEC), Sociology Unit 1 (AQA) and Psychology: Psychological investigations (OCR). (All AS Levels)

    Film Studies went okay I guess, our whole class planned questions for each section the day before and the exact one we planned for section C came up Didn't write enough for section B, unfortunately.

    Sociology, well... I finished the paper. That in itself was a miracle for me since in the mock I only did one of the essay questions.

    Psychology was the easiest one. We get a paper purely on research methods, which is a complete gift compared to AQA which I did last year (and only got an E in )


    I have 2 last exams this week: Sociology Unit 2 on Thursday and Psychology Core Studies on Monday. I'm so scared that I will fail again :cry2:

    Hiya Guys!
    Today I had AQA Business studies and myself and other class mates found it really difficult!
    Just wondering if that was the general view or whether it was just us.

    Cool idea, but is it possible if you do that for each exam? that would be so useful. Like Geography AQA, so we could see how people thought overall of that particular exam.

    This idea has been proposed, and I agree it would be awesome :beard: I don't know if we can do that at the moment though as we just don't have enough people posting for each exam so the data would be somehwhat meaningless. That's why I've decided to do it week by week

    It's definitely something to work towards though :bl:

    Most of the people I know, including myself, thought it was an alright exam.

    Nearly everyone (again including myself) will get 0 marks on the calculation question. I thought the longer answer questions were fairly nice though.

    Ah, so I was part of the 12% for whom one of last week's exams went badly

    Today's Psychology paper went much better though. Pretty sure I might've got a high A

    I've never seen so many 4 markers before? I prefer that to having fewer questions but more 6 and 8 markers though.

    Great news Don't let one bad exam put you off all the others - it usually goes better than you thought it did anyway
