    I found R3 really weird. R1 and R2 were alright, but am worried that my answers for those two won't be good enough to salvage the disaster that was R3 How about you?

    Time pressure for R3 was really my downfall and I hope I did enough to get through that question. Do you have to get over 50% in every question?

    R1 and R2 were fine but very time pressured! R3 was very strange - not seen anything like that so not sure if what I was writing was relevant at all?! 🙈

    Had the exact same issues. No idea what the hell they really wanted people to mention in R3 so spent way too long trying to find SOMETHING so then was really under time pressure to get something half decent done... not convinced I got 5 boxes competent at all there or and the ES part for it. Then again I thought I'd failed TIs too. Don't even know how to feel tbh.

    Same here, felt really depressed when I was struggling to finish R3. I thought I did well in R1 & R2 but I'm nervous as all the examiners warn that R3 is the downfall of many failing scripts.

    R3 was very light compared to other two sections - glad that someone created this thread as I feel less alone, although this will not compensate for failing CS.

    Wishing everyone the very best of luck

    I don't think this is a hard and fast rule. Also, from what I understand the marks are moderated as well. I'm sure I haven't scored 50% and I'm an optimistic person.

    So annoying! I honestly think there wasn't enough to write about and even the calculation they wanted was a bit vague! Least everyone pretty much feels the same and as you said they will be moderated accordingly.

    This is my second attempt I failed R2 and R1 last time so it will be annoying if I fail just on r3 this time!!

    Best of luck for the 15th

    Do they give you a breakdown of each requirement? Or do you have to request it?

    Had to pay £25 to get a breakdown!

    Didn't really have a clue what I was doing last time, gone with ACA simplified this time who were really good, just hope it was enough to pass!

    All I can say is best of luck! Def worth the £25 if I fail though
