    Not 45 minutes. It was more like 1hr and 10 minutes. We're given 1hr and 15 minutes but I had spent 5 minutes reading the unseen poem and understanding it

    They've gone really well. What about you ?Physics was a bit iffy because it was very different to the past papers but my teachers have said that the grade boundaries will be low this year. I think I still did well. Everything else has been amazing. Not that physics wasn't but then again I am a perfectionist.

    Have you guys heard about the bomb scare across the country ? It's been happening a lot especially in schools e.g mine and it's disrupting Gcse's and A-levels.
    Where is this happening?

    That's good to hear Wish you all the best. Yeh i've heard that OCR science was kinda hard. Mine has been good until Friday came but then again it's the past so i can't do much about that. Planning to do a lot of revision during the half term but i got distracted today mainly because i had exams every single day this week and Friday was so stressful nearly had a heart attack - that bomb threat was scary ( well i thought it was scary )

    Lol. I didn't hear about the bomb thing. Thanks. I took a break today as well. I'm going to wake up at 5 tomorrow and revise.

    I do the same board as you. How did you find the exam ? I thought it was good. Maybe 150 ish for an A*. Did you see that news about how hard the exam was ? It wasn't that bad. Was it ?
    Yeah true
    There's no way it'll be that low. Last year's was 155 and this year's was a hell of a lot easier than that. I reckon around 162 for an A* but relatively low for other grades - top set students found it easy and most other people really struggled. I think they'll make the boundary for a C quite low so that more people have a chance of passing.

    OCR science was ok - definitely really hard if you hadn't revised but if you had then it was manageable luckily I had so I found them all pretty nice, paired with low grade boundaries as many found them difficult I should have done quite well

    I also plan to get a lot done this half term but I'm holding off until Monday to start just to allow myself to de-stress a bit (I don't feel stressed but I know I need a break if that makes sense) so yeah

    And I haven't heard about the bomb thing either, you sure it was legit? Definitely not saying you're lying btw, it's just that no one else seems to have heard about it at all.

    All I've heard is that my teachers said a student called a school and made a threat but when the school found out it was a hoax to disrupt the exam the exam board said they all had to resit in November. If that happened in our school I would be so annoyed that someone had done it just to disrupt an exam. Hopefully noone in my year at school will get any ideas!
