    Ok right, that's a good idea thanks.

    Any ideas of what questions could come up in the exam?

    I thought it was ok actually. Biology and chemistry were great, it was just physics that was a bit harder. 😊

    I found it quite difficult, especially because there was a lot of equations involved and I'm not good at maths, I also didn't answer the 6 mark question for chemistry

    If I get a B on this paper, and an A* on the second one could I still get an A* overall? My controlled assessment is an A*

    Im not sure, about your grade, however it depends on the grade boundaries. Also, i agree with you it was a tough paper, and i hop they make unit 4 easier. This is so scary as well!

    Same tbh the problem with me is that I just can't answer questions and with science a lot of them are one mark so you either get the answer right or not which is why I prefer essays. But yeah, fingers crossed the second paper is easier Have you revised everything?

    Yes, I think you can provided you got a really high B in this exam and get really high A* for the next exam and controlled assessment!
