Hi everyone,

I just took March 2021 BST exam today.

I manage to attempt all big questions but not all sub-questions.

This subject cause me a lot of confusion. I don't know how much is required for the answers. The sample answers are way too lengthy and not feasible given the timeframe!

Anyone can advise would be greatly appreciate!

I took the BST exam today too, I thought it was awful, especially question2. How did you find it overall?

A few things to bear in mind. I was in your position in December.

The model answers in the Question Bank are not expected to be replicated in exam time so don’t worry about not matching their length. They are intended to capture a range of different points and the examiners certainly don’t expect your answers to be anywhere near as detailed.

BST is a highly subjective exam. As long as you’ve attempted each question and approached it logically by using the material in the question and applying it sensibly, you should be fine.

The question 2 is totally diaster. If I failed, it would due to it.

Hi yes - I got 71 I think. It’s easy to say but there is no point in worrying about it now.

I thought I’d failed and ended up passing comfortably. Try not to think about it now - what’s done is done.

Subquestions?I definitely lost lots of marks for the exhibit question (18marks) but just feel like this has to be done to even come close to finishing the paper! It’s so time pressured!!

Hey, did BST as well. It was a difficult exam and I did around 60-65% of every question but absolutely nailed the 10 marks ethics. Do you think thats enough? Its literally impossible for anyone to do more than 80% of each question in the 2.5hrs?
What does everyone thing, I am genuinely scared about failing
