    I managed to finish on time, all my mates say they also did much better than the mock exams. By the way I will be grateful if anyone could also provide the predicted grade boundaries, I am looking for an A/A*!

    I really enjoyed the exam today. The coastal town topic being a refreshing change from the standard "social media" ones. Predicted Grade Boundaries are 58 (out of 80) or slightly more for an A*...

    Hope this helps

    Nice! I bet you did great mate! Ye the grade boundaries I think will probably be the same as usual. I won't be doing any more english, lmao, I think that is the biggest relief!!! Maths, Further Maths, Physics and Economics will be the way to go for A- level hopefully!

    Did anyone else think that the sources were terrible? Questions 5&6 were really good and I thought there was a lot to talk about and debate about. Hope everyone else's went ok!

    Physics isn't particularly my cup of tea so I'd struggle with engineering but good luck with whatever you choose to do!

    Yeah I have to agree and say that it was quite hard to compare on question 4. Plus I kind of was limited with the sources. But overall hopefully, i'll be okay - need a B for college

    Aw i love the sources, it's just that you need to understand the way they write
    I love Q6 better than Q5- i don't even know why :/

    If I did no comparison for question 4 can I only get 4 marks? I am so worried as I did loads of analysis
