Aaahh, I find it was different from the other years with many trick questions nevertheless, it was still pretty simple
Imo the grade boundaries will probably be around 35 or 40 for a grade C

Wonder when some unofficial mark schemes will come out

Wow , that's wayyyy to low. Minimum 27 for a C in this paper
I'm sure grade boundaries will go up due to it being pretty simple

And don't forget your portable stoves coursework mark will be added

I got a B for my coursework I got 36 marks and also I did find this paper fairly easy but physics 6 marker is where fell down big time other than that I found the paper great 😀 and also a C has always been below 25 in the papers I've seen I'm hoping for a B overall in core.

I thought it was pretty easy but I'm annoyed that most of it was maths and common sense than science. You have no idea how much I revised for this paper and hardly any of the topics came up.

Wondering what the chemistry 6 mark question was again, I can't remember it....

I thought the biology 6 mark question was alright and the physics one was not so alright.

Oh my god. I'm so angry about that! I mean, evergthing i spent hours on revising didnt even turn up. Do you know how long it took me to learn about haemoglobin and emulsifiers and heart disease and the eye and learning the electromagnetic spectrum. Everything im best at didnt come up

In my mock exams and all the past papers ive done you needed around 23 to get a C, 30 to get a B, 39 for an A and like 46 for an A star. Trust me, the boundaries are usually extremely low! XD Did you do a coursework this year on the body and temperature? I did better in this coursework therefore this one will count for me what did you get in your coursework?

Aahhhh, my teachers up the grade boundaries in our mocks to make sure we have secured a grade. My core science coursework this year was on portable stoves and I did pretty well in it with 43/48

What I wrote for the nail varnish question was that the forces between the nail vanish molecules are stronger than the forces between the water and nail varnish;furthermore, forces between water molecules are stronger than forces between water and nail varnish.

I know it's hard to get your head around but i remember it from the revision guide

I think putting the grade boundaries high fod mocks is a good idea as it prepares you more but my set didnt do very well even with the low boundaries. I'm in set 3 and most people got C's and D's. One person got an A. I was lucky enough to get a B in the mocks. Woah 43 is extremely good! Is that an A or A star?

Aha niceee !
I think it's an A* but the teacher didn't say as the official grade boundaries haven't been released.
