    i did this too! we did medical ethics (abortion), wbu? the question was a bit weird but i just answered it like it was saying we can't reject religious principles. I'm sure your exam went well! hallelujah we are done with AS philosophy!!
    yeah i did abortion too that's how i answered it, and i literally evaluated everything i said cause that's what my teacher old us to do. I'm sure you did great as well! and thank God it's over

    I remember you. You want to go to Cambridge same as me. My prediction for me is around 55. I didn't realise K had strangeness so I lost 6 marks What do you think you got ?
    Around 60/70, 62-63/70 best case scenario. So hopefully still an A, just a low one :/ hoping to push it up with unit 2 because that's usually the easier module for me.

    Wtf. People are predicting 51 for an A which means 60 is more than 90% UMS. You are complaining about nothing as per usual.

    Yes, but that's assuming I've got everything right which I probably haven't :lol: so it's probably going to be 30/70

    Yeah yeah yeah. You know full well you got close to full UMS. 55 for an A last year and 60 would have got you bang on 90%. 50 roughly for an A this year so 60 will get you high 90s.

    Trust me when I say I know I've done badly. I came out of the exam in tears, I did ****. I'm just trying to stay optimistic, okay?

    You haven't done badly though have you. Like you said 60/70. I also came out of the exam in tears to be fair because I realised that K has strangeness. 60/70 gets you almost full UMS. You should be happy not upset

    You'll be fine yep, just your top three. So if you ace maths, biology and chemistry then physics doesn't even need to be glanced at.

    I thought the exam went quite well today. I know I have done a few questions wrong, but I should still be on for 90+ UMS (hopefully). Honestly there wasn't anything too hard in the exam.

    Exam Subject: History (Women's Suffrage)
    Exam Board: Edexcel
    A Level or AS Level: AS
    worst exam yet (as in ever) - I'd revised so much and knew all the dates and legislation etc and exam technique and had done every past paper ever and was basically always getting 40/40 for essays but I think it was a disaster and I'm so upset
    Try not ot worry about it :hugs: These things generally go better than you feel they did. Don't let it ruin the rest of your exams - it's over now, so forget about it and focus on your other subjects now

    Felt like utter ****, much like the c1 paper. I think I've still got an A but if not I may as well kill myself because I'm branded as the school's resident maths genius.

    I wasn't originally but halfway through the year a teacher who organises our Maths Challenge entries persuaded me to pick it up. Regretting not selecting it at the start of year 12 now because I'm gonna have to teach myself quite a bit of it over the next two weeks lol
