    I didnt manage to answer all the questions, including the last 6 marker :/ I thought timing was so difficult and 90 minutes for 80 marks just wasnt enough. Especially considering how many data analysis questions there were.

    What good will changing the grade boundaries do if everyone only got like 20/80 on that test?

    You need like above 50% just to get an E, which isn't even a pass

    I really don't think that I answered any more than half marks... Considering that is usually a U, I am not looking forward to results day

    Considering how difficult it was, I'd hope not..

    The exam wasn't that bad actually. I worked through all the questions, Probably got 3 (or 4 marks if I'm lucky) on that last 6-mark question. It felt more like a chemistry exam than it did a biology exam. I'm looking at a very low A, or at least few marks off. Grade boundaries are definitely going to be set low.

    What about you guys?
