    They were quite different to the past papers, although going by last month's B1 paper I definitely didn't walk into the exam expecting a straightfoward paper...what about you?
    I think there's already another thead that's putting together an unofficial mark scheme, so I'm going by what's written there.

    Here's a pretty good marks scheme.

    You can drop around a third of the marks even for an A on both papers, so don't stress much if you think you missed out a lot of marks as, thankfully, AQA Science grade boundaries are a godsend.

    Personally I found the paper really good to say I revised the night before the exam; kinda' dreading the next exams though. Oh well!

    If I'm to die in a Chemistry exam then I guess that's my destiny. How did you guys find it?

    Overall, B2 was a nice exam. Some questions did leave me puzzled for a short while but managed to put something relevant down. Just hoping C2 and P2 boost my grade to an A* as biology is my weakest science.

    that mark scheme sucks. more than half the questions are missing and the marks aren't even put down
