    I’m predicted 8s and 9s only and in class I understand everything and am very able (don’t mean to be arrogant but not really another way of putting it) but I just did the chem bio and physics specimen papers and came out with 75% on them?!?! I was really disappointed because it would be a grade 7 maybe 8.
    Does anyone have any tips on how to actually apply the knowledge into the papers? I really want to do maths bio and chem for a level and go on to do medicine but I’m really worried about the level of detail and being specific in these new exams. Pls help!!!

    Look over your specimen papers and examiner reports. It gives you the information on what type of things they expect to see on each questions, for example 6 mark questions need specific words or phrases for students to actually aquire the marks. Look over your mistakes and see where you can improve. Personally I believe you shouldn't worry, a 7 is a good grade and if you got the grades from hard work then I don't see why you wouldn't get 8s or 9s in the actual exams.

    Ah ok thanks. I didn’t think about the examiner reports.
