    Dont worry about a couple of questions there will inevitibly be some you cannot answer, its just the luck of the draw- the papers are designed so you can skip a couple of questions and still get good marks.

    Assuming a B is 70% and the exam is marked out of 100, the average full length question (several parts) may hold 10 marks, probably less so you can drop at least full 3 questions and still get a B.

    a B is around 65-70% actually, also wen i counted the total marks for the last 2 questions, it only added up to 11 marks!!!!

    Don't worry too much about it: I've heard the Edexcel non-calc GCSE was a bit of a ******* this year so I'm sure the marks will be moderated up I know it's easy to say but best to put it right out of your mind now and focus on the others!

    You gonna worry about mistakes in exams, I did after I came out of M1, I thought I put something that I hadn't. You just have to forget about it and wait till the results.

    And if its any consolation, last year when I did GCSE Higher, I skipped about 2 questions and got an a*. Don't worry.
