    If anyone has any thoughts regarding the new specification and specimen papers then feel free to share them! I thought the specimen papers were absolutely horrendous and if the real exams are similar then I'm screwed..

    They did a damn good job at covering a large amount of the units in both papers. There's loads of questions about 'improving the validity/reliability' of your research and 'supporting your evidence' that are like 5 marks each! So it's difficult to know what to write and where the marks come from, it's quite frustrating. I got 63% in unit 1, which is a C I believe - nobody in my year got an A!

    I know! The wording of the questions are often ridiculous and I'm stuck not knowing what to write when the answer is really straight forward?! I'm predicted an A so I hope it isn't as hard, anyway!
