How do you think the exam was and do you think the style of questions would be the same for the other science papers?

it went so bad tbh, but like when i came out everyone else was saying it was okay, but ahh. like i wasn't really expecting the style of questions that it had and literally nothing i revised came up, even though i felt like i knew a lot. idk it was just weird question styles tbh n i messed up w the maths n weird heart stuff

Definitely easier than the 2015 paper so expecting the grade boundaries to be a bit higher

I felt like most of the questions were graph questions or not TOTALLY related to biology....like don't get me wrong there were like 4/5 questions on things I actually revised for but it was NOT worth having an all nighter for ugh I'm so annoyed

it went well actually. there were only a couple of questions I was unsure of, one being the situs inversus (which to me still sounds like a Harry Potter spell XD). I didn't actually learn about that in class. we skipped that bit due to our teacher leaving but besides that it was good. hopefully the rest of science are good too. Everyone ready for maths tomorrow? :/

what are the grade boundaries usually like, like how much do you reckon you'd need for a c?

OCR Gateway Biology B1 B2 B3 grade boundaries:
Higher 2015 - a*=50/75 a=42/75 b=34/75 c=27/75 d=20/75
Higher 2014 - a*=52/75 a=43/75 b=34/75 c=26/75 d=18/75
Higher 2013 - a*=45/75 a=36/75 b=27/75 c=19/75 d=11/75

So as you can see by the difference between 2013 and 2014/2015, the grade boundaries can change a lot so its quite hard to predict them. However I found this years paper to be a bit easier then the 2015 paper so I would expect the grade boundaries to be around 3 marks higher than the 2015 ones. As I said this is a very rough guess so you never know. Good luck and I hope you get the grades you want

I found it so much harder than the 2015 paper! Really hoping for low grade boundaries, I am meant to be taking it for A level!
