Hey!

I just wanted to see if anyone else on here was doing the CIE exam board for their Geography A Level! Already had paper 1, and just had paper 2 today!!

Was interested to see how everyone else found todays paper? and how you’re feeling about the paper on Thursday?

Nice to meet you!

Honestly could’ve been a lot worse, so far all the papers were doable and there weren’t any huge surprises. I just hope grade boundaries are low and tbf in 2019 it was only around 68-70% for an A*
