    Did anyone else think that paper was horrendous?? A few people in my class got really upset when they came out and I think I dropped marks on every single question.

    I thought that paper was pretty challenging.
    I've been practising a lot on past papers, and the questions in this paper were worded so badly. Guess it's because of the new spec, but definitely was tough.

    I think for what they were asking wasn't too bad like the content, it was just the wording of the questions it kinda threw me a bit

    It was awful for me. And so niche - memory was nothing but models, practically.

    And the questions about animal studies threw me; I'm not sure if it was super simple, or if they were asking for more.

    Realized at the end I'd skipped 12-mark on Strange Situation too and 6-mark on Internal Model - had 10-minutes left. So upset with myself. Every mock I've managed to drop only a couple of marks...and I did so badly in this, but my expectations were so different, and it threw me so much that I lost myself and my time.
