    I think a lot of people are saying it was easy as it was so vuage that people dont explictly know what they got wrong, this means thatt people think it was easy, i thought it wasnt hard to any extent either but the 6 markers were wishy washy and i wrote a lot more than the room provided. I think grade boudaries will be high, so even if u found it easy, an A may not be the case

    Which questions in particular ? ^-^
    The 6-marker on conclusions was easy enough, just PEE paragraphs on data.

    Those are just strengths and weaknesses of the term, contextualized with the study given ^-^

    For example: Evaluate the use of random sampling in this study.

    1. Describe what random sampling is
    2. Strength of RS + contextualize to the study + comment about the strength
    3. Weakness of RS + contextualize to the study + comment about the weakness

    I basically did points 2 and 3 and so should get the marks. However in the spec paper for some 6 markers they wanted more paragraphs and a conc to i added that too

    I knew the obvious answers to the questions however i dont think i contextualised in depth enough.....

    for example, 'what is random sampling'

    i answered something like: when everyone in a population has an equal chance of being selected. This can be completed by placing names in a hat and unbiasedly collecting a list to create the sample......

    i did not specifically state The Oaklands Home or the elderly...
    how many marks do you think i will lose for doing this!

    thank you !

    If this was the 4 marker you may have lost one or two marks. However, I think as this is a new spec and the examiners know this, you might get 3 out of 4 if you explained yourself very well. ^-^

    However I don't think there is much need to fret over this so much kaps ^-^ As you know the A grade is about 80% which in terms of this 75mark paper would be around 60/61 marks which allows you to miss out around 15 marks. Even if the grade boundaries shot up to 85% (as it was quite an easy paper), it's still only 64/65 marks. So you shouldn't worry so much ^-^

    If you are still worried though, I suggest you give it your all on Core Studies tomorrow as this with boost your grade entirely. Study the debates, perspectives and areas thoroughly - strengths and weaknesses are key. Make sure you know procedure, aims, results and conclusions like the back of your hand. Study hard tonight in 30min bursts with a 10/15min break and test yourself (flash cards etc.). Also remember to get a good nights sleep tonight, and a helpful tip might be to eat something high in sugar e.g chocolate just before the exam starts.

    That's all I can really say, but I wish you well on your exams. I hope the questions are nice tomorrow ^-^
