    How did you find the exam?!
    My hand was aching by the end of the 4/5/6 markers, it wasn't brilliant I thought but wasn't too too ambiguous but there was a lot of data analysis and application questions, it seems that with the new spec knowing our stuff is a given and what will sort out the top grades from the lower grades will be your ability to apply your knowledge, what did you think?

    There was a question on cabbage pigment and designing an experiment to see the effect of age of the cabbage.

    I'm a mature student (25) sitting the Edexcel A new AS level. I ran out of time so lost 6 marks but I answered most of what you've put correctly - that's a good sign, right?!

    I need a B to take up my place at medical school this September. Feels like I won't get it after that. Dreading paper 2!

    Yeah there were far too many four markers (I counted 8). My hand was aching too. To be honest, I was happy that there were no data analysis questions.. I've never liked them 😜 Hopefully the grade boundaries will be low because no one could've expected that exam

    Oh wow, I'm studying Edexcel Bio A (new 2015 spec) as a mature person too (23 years old). Do you mind if we keep in touch? PM me if you like. I'm also worried about paper 2

    Awesome. Glad I have someone to talk to who is in a similar position to me!! Paper 2 is definitely my weakest area out of the two papers! I'm really panicking tbh and don't really know what to expect on Tuesday! What ways are you studying/revising? I've made notes, flashcards, and have worked through 2 or 3 past papers (untimed) alongside the mark schemes just so I can improve my exam technique but things are still not really sticking
