Hi, i am not sitting the EDEXCEL exam however i am sitting the AQA exam. I have found it best to revise by looking at videos, looking at real life examples has helped me too. Hope your exam goes great and would be great to hear about it after 😊

aww cheers, best of luck to you too, im not too confident for the exam, but am feeling ok as i have really good coursework. a little stressed as my exam clashes with psychology, so i have to sit it after and be in isolation. anyway, good luck to you today, and let me know also!

Oh no that’s a shame! I am most scared by how few people study it and how high the boundaries are! I’ve managed to get good coursework too so going in with around 50% at an A/A* 🤞🏻

wow! haha well congrats on not dropping it!!
How did your exam go? have you had it yet?
Had my DT exam, to be honest it was hard, like the questions were pretty much the opposite of what i expected, but thanks goodness for A* coursework haha.
the others in my class agreed that it was really hard, so maybeee lower grade boundaries 🤞🏼.

ahh thats so nice!! well nicer then mine, basically nothing i studied showed up!! things that did show up though included biotechnology and food developments, how the use of frozen eggs are used in manufacturing...and stuff, a few of the nicer questions involved climacteric fruits, hard/soft wheats and wine processes. but still, wasn't the best paper..
