    Hi everyone,

    It's that time of year again! Use smileys to rate how you think each of your exams went



    Post in this thread each day you have exams, stating the subject and the exam board, and use a smiley to sum up how you feel it went. Like this:

    Exam Subject:
    Exam Board:
    Level:

    Feeling great
    Happy
    Not sure
    Not good
    Failed?!



    Rules:

    this will make the results more representative. don't worry about spamming- if everyone does this we can find out how the feeling for that individual exam was as well as for GCSEs as a whole. as this will affect our stats.



    Each week we'll make a pretty pie chart to see what the general sentiment is Have fun and good luck in your exams!

    :mad: I had my Art exam on like Wednesday and Thursday, pretty sure it's the only subject I'm going to fail as I don't think I finished most of my coursework or the writing lmao. I'm more good at acadmical exam subjects with little to no coursework.

    Exam subject: GCSE PE practical
    Exam board: Edexcel
    I had this exam around a month ago, and I'm feeling about it, because I don't think I performed as well as I should, in Football and Coaching, but smashed it for Fitness and Badminton, so we shall see!

    Exam Subject: RE Unit 3
    Exam Board: Edexcel
    Level: Not sure whats meant by this? GCSE I guess?

    The RE Exam was easy but the time they give you is just overkill on your hands it should be 1hr and 45/40 Minutes as opposted to 1hr and 30 Minutes. I knew all the answers however couldn't finish the last d Style question because of the time so I've already lost 6 marks there and probably one or two more. I need to get a perfect mark in the Mark's Gospel Exam to balance it out. Only Edexcel screws people over like this, I didn't even stop for a break I wrote for England. But now I'm on study leave so gonna start revising for Biology, at least I can count on OCR Science to be reasonable.

    Went okay, but I know that I failed one question that was worth 4 marks. If I managed to get a B I will be happy. I blanked out 3 times though.

    because most of the questions were okay, except for one where I wrote everything that came into my head- both relevant and irrelevant.

    You're lucky knowing Edexcel it will probably be 95% and more for an A*. That Exam Board is the bane of my existence, the timing for that exam is so unreasonable.

    Went alright knew everything, and all the keywords and all that. But the timing in an Edexcel RE exam, most people didnt finish the last question I think, I don't think i've ever written so hard in my whole life. They need to give Ten or Fifteen extra minutes tbh. I didn't finish the last D Style question and I had to add one more point to two of my C Style questions So I lost either 11 or 12 Marks. That or less. I honestly feel like Edexcel makes it difficult just for the bants.

    that question was so difficult for referring to christianity, I don't even remember if I did! I didn't finish all of the questions, and I know there was so much more that I could have written. I'm relying on Marks Gospel to bring my grade up for sure!!!
