I haven't been able to find them anywhere, only the 'unofficial' ones. On the AQA website I believe it says they will be released next year.

Pooping myself slightly! I'm hoping for an A, but I am a private candidate as I finished college a couple of years ago, and I did the AS, but want to apply for uni now and I need the Chem at A2. What about you? I'm still curious about whether the exams will go ahead with all these rule changes etc!

yeah i get u 100%, im also a private candidate - got a B in 2019 but needed an A for uni so i took a gap year, reapplied, got an offer, then exams got cancelled and my school couldn't give me any grades so my offers been deferred to 2021 conditional to autumn exams.

i was thinking the same, maybe they get delayed or cancelled completely, making us sit them in summer. but tbh, the autumn cohort is gonna be so small - probs <10 candidates per exam centre and that should be very feasible to manage (social distancing wise). i can only imagine them getting cancelled if the whole country has to go into complete lockdown again

Oh, okay! That's so frustrating for you. It's good to hear you did get a conditional offer though, congrats. I always planned to apply for 2021 so the lack of predicated grades didn't affect me. Everything is so up in the air! I took advice from an old lecturer who suggested I do the Autumn exams then resit in the Summer if necessary. Definitely regret not just postponing until Summer though!

Yeah I’m saying no way more than a thousand entering this exam, and so the grade boundaries might be inflated.
I’m planning to have finished all the content within 3 days and then start on exam papers which will be for around 2 weeks until the first exam

Yeah just chemistry. I done limited revision before as UCAT plays a big part in my application. It kinda helped as I got a good score in the UCAT and now focusing on chemistry.
I’m nearly finished the content (probably in 3-4 days) and then just gonna do chemistry paper 1 exam q’s and past papers for 1-2 weeks before the first exam. Reckon it’s doable or am I too optimistic? Aiming for an A
