Hi,

Anyone else do the Edexcel Biology Salters Nuffield A level exams? How did you find them? I am so worried because I have no idea what the mark scheme will be like. I feel I can get anywhere from A* to a B , depending on the markschme and its really stressing me out.

Hi there

I know what you mean about not knowing what the mark scheme will be like, in my experience they can be so variable and unpredictable (which is why Edexcel are my least fave exam board). Personally I thought papers 1 and 2 were unusually kind, but I found paper 3 quite awful, especially that 9 marker on fish evolution. I was hoping for some cross-topic theme like there has been in past papers for the 9 marker, but instead it was like an analysis of data and interpretation question (grrrr).

If your feeling nervous then just remember that the grade boundaries will probably be low overall like they have been in past years for Edexcel A Level Biology, and that I do not know a single person in my biology class who likes the style of exams Edexcel Biology has, cos its so hard to understand the question. I think most who took those papers are in the same kind of boat.

Whatever happens, good luck for tomorrow
