    Yeh so did I!! There was only two 8 markers in the specimen aswell so I thought they'd keep it the same! I didn't even know what I was writing about for the 12 marker aha my 8 marker answers were longer then the 12 marker one 😓

    Yeah, I can't believe they had so many. I still have red marks on my hand from writing. I think I read the 12 marker / answered it wrong. I just spoke purely about quantitative data and qualitative data and then did a strength and weakness of both, and linked to a study once, and a messy conclusion. I just couldn't answer or read it properly as I was down to five minutes when I got onto that question. Ugh. I'm probably going to end up re-sitting. I'm really hoping biological and learning will be easier, and less 8 markers.

    How can you be expected to get half the marks from describing a study when the question says evaluate??
    for all the 8 markers, you have to describe and then evaluate even though it says evaluate. Its been introduced with the new spec

    I'm certain I got like 3/8 on two of the 8 markers and like 5 on other... I couldn't even conclude i'm really woried.
    I made some points for the 12 marker ngl I did that in the middle of the paper.

    Ah, hopefully a lot of people will be the same then, and we should get a little bit of credit. It was confusing. I was used to describing a theory or something. I just didn't know what to write for the different types of data and started waffling a definition.

    So when it said evaluate sheriffs study you spend 4 marks on briefly outlining/describing the study and then another 4 marks on evaluating

    Hated it :laugh: It was easy enough to answer but I hated how it took up so much of the paper, I didn't really revise the evidence of practice much at all
    Yeah it was just weird...

    Do you think it's worth attempting Psychology or Biology A Level in one year? (Alongside two other A2s)

    My school doesn't offer Psychology but I could self teach it in my frees, getting a biology teacher to help me with the science modules/ potentially mark a few past papers?
