    I think I got around 26-29 marks not sure what that would be though. I normally get marks from multiple choice questions, but there was only technically 1 in the paper!

    I got 3.5?

    I didn't think I'd need to revise Neanderthal dentistry, Ebola and twins with too much product in their hair. I literally dedicated an hour two the cycles and nothing. God.

    Oh god, yes. The hours that I dedicated to learning about the heart, cystic fibrosis, genetic testing and the cycles. It was honestly as if I was taking a test from a completely different exam board.

    Exactly!! The amount of time it took me to understand how the heart works and there was literally nothing on it!

    The OCR examiners put as much heart into designing the test as there actually was on the test.
