Could you ask any friends in that class how they're revising?

No past papers (only old spec which was pretty different) no textbook/ revision guide, and no one in the class is doing any work. I actually started a bit and I’m feeling a bit better- if I can continue this pace maybe I’ll be ok!

Oh I see good luck and keep at it MankyShoe (what a name haha) - have you asked your teacher what they recommend in learning the material and any other resources they may have at all? What about previous year students if they were on the same spec?

wow that does sound shoddy indeed, but yeah there should be grade requirement adjustments on the general performance rest assured, ie if the whole cohort underperforms Im sure they will lower the boundaries a bit accordingly, they did it quite a bit for my ones anyway back in my day :holmes:
