    interesting discussion i feel the same! We had less time i was on OCR and we had 30marks for each thing-play/novel/poetry. I think i did well on one and the others i drifted away. My coursework is a high C out of the 30% sumat like C/B

    (exam:70% and coursework is worth 30%)

    For instance my coursework is of a C/B grade= 18%?
    how much is needed in the exam for an A ?
    from today's point of view i think my results are maybe of 60/90 or maybe of 68% maybe.
    Can anyone tell me|?

    I normally help people with English, but did you say you do OCR? I have no idea with that one..but like ellie says you need around 90% for A* and so on 80% for A etc....You know you should concentrate on your other exams now.predicting what you get will only make things worse...I'm sure you haven't done awful, but if you keep posting stupid things like this then your other exams will be as bad as the one you took. Its up to the examiners - leave it until August.
    This is why nobody is relying - because you are worrying over something stupid - i don't mean to be nasty, and i know we all panic after exams, but what will be will be. I'm sure you'll probably get an A or something.

    and when I listened to the radio the other night (like i always do) the presenter was talking about how her daughter got a C in French even though she was absolutely terrible at it all! And that was 5 years ago...So don't worry, especially if you believe the 'GCSEs are getting easier' statement .

    Anyone that did sit the Literature exam yesterday (AQA) Do you think the boundaries will be as high as people on here are estimating ie 90 for A*. 80 for A etc....

    thanks


    One finaly thing. if you did amazing on one section and did not even start the second section. would they take into account you being brilliant but just not being able to right fast. would you really be penalised....?!?!?

    thanks

    They're going to mark what you wrote. If you got full marks on the first section and didn't have time to start the second section, they wouldn't say 'oh well, if he attempted it he would have got full marks, so we'll give them to him'. It's not a case of being penalised, it's marking what you've written. Half the challenge of exams is technique, so you should have planned your time better. And please stop trying to work out what you got, you won't be able to, and you don't seem to be listening to anyone who's replying. Just revise for the rest of your exams, and no doubt you'll be presently surprised come results day.

    It's fairly straight forward at AS/A2 actually. It's by far my favourite subject, and I want to do it at uni.

    Who knows. Maybe a management consultant. I don't know. I kept my subjects broad so I could keep my options open, and just picked my 4 favourites from GCSE really.

    is biology significantly harder than at GCSE?

    i think it is fairly difficult for gcse because the syllabus is HUGE....

    It's similar in so much as there is too much content to cover in the time, the volume of things you learn seems much more than in any other subject. It does get a lot more in depth too, and you notice how superficial a lot of stuff you learnt at GCSE is. It entirely depends on whether you're interested in it or not. I was, so I took it. I think if I wasn't, it would have seem like a very big struggle.
