which 12 mark questions did you choose
I don't fully remember the questions but it was 17 and 25 both were the bottom ones. i struggled with one question on studying society, something about what secondary method would use use I first put official statistics then looked at the next question which was ethical issues and I had none then I put newspapers, and there was something wrong with that too, so my last decision was diaries

wbu!
I should be revising for biology now!

I chose 17 and 24. And there was no ethical considerations for the secondary sources?
I put diaries and journals though and explained how it could help to research attitudes towards lone parents.
Same i have biology tomorrow too, my exam board is OCR. Are you AQA?

I thought it was a really easy one, great 12 markers !! And all of the 4 markers were really easy ones. So much was repeated from past years. Grade boundaries will probably be high though

Couldn't be better! However what was the advantage of testing on primary schools ? I had wrote how it could be helpful for comparison between children and teens

grade boundaries would be pretty high, so being truthful no you'd get an estimate of a B. 24 marks is a lot to lose.

The ethical considerations to consider was just before the question about "identify a primary method you could use."
and yes I am AQA

I was so confused when i saw this question but i put it can help teachers to see the progress of students
Disadvantage: If pupils do bad then this may be discouraging as this can lead to negative labelling

They will be high because we are the last year doing the old course, sadly, but we
have an advantage since it was easy. I was looking at your predictions at about 9:00am today. Got to say you did get a few correct!

The paper is out of 90 and if you lost out on 24 marks then that is 66 and obviously you are likely to lose some marks when it is marked so i would say that you could at least get a B on this paper. You would have to get above 80 marks on paper 2 for an A*

I wrote can see if the child is underachieving and then teachers can support the child
also formal testing can lead to too much stress being put on the child.

What 3 questions did you miss and why?
It sounds like you missed a 12 mark question if you lost that many marks from just 3 questions
