I will never forget OCR's applied ICT course which is severely outdated. Glad my school are no longer teaching the course. My flash escape the room game was marked on the same boundaries as a dress up game hich is a far easier game to do needing only a couple lines of code. The worse thing was that OCRs website is just too hard to navigate and there are littlw to no resources for the course. And my friends who do psychologu had all failed, literally dont understand OCR's methods :/

Maybe, I don't know... I was one of the lucky ones who didn't fail and I'm considering going for a remark because I'm only 2UMS away from the next grade How did you do in your other subjects?

Ooh another OCR AS psychology student, hardly see anyone else who does it on this forum.

I got a B in psychology, both exams. One was just inside the UMS grade boundary (1st exam), other was 5 UMS off an A. I'm not entirely sure how the rest of my class did but I spoke to one girl and she got an A (she was one of the ones who actually tried though).

I think the reason most wouldn't have done well is the 2nd exam itself, the 12 marker on ethics and the 6 marker on strengths and weaknesses (of whatever the specific thing was) were just so different to most of the past papers, and I don't think anybody was really prepared for those sorts of questions (I wasn't for ethics, I probably lost a good few marks on it).

I asked my teacher and she told me to go for it, didn't request for a photocopy though :/ yeah for sciences I would request a photocopy first unless you thought it deserved way better or expected a grade higher

I think you mean A2? In that case i think i will, deciding between that or Physics.
My f451 score was 93 UMS, which was a little more than expected, i thought i did well but nowehere near as high! What were your scores?

Oh and thanks
