    The results aren't out yet, but the teachers who marked the exam papers must be able to give some comments on what they thought.
    My friend's theatre studies teacher told them that after marking other people's papers he thought it was easy but loads of people gave silly answers and he thinks his students are likely to have done well.
    Anyway, are there any websites or anything where teacher's comments on papers can be found? In particular Edexcel Chemistry?

    I don't think so. I can't imagine the exam boards being too fond of teachers doing this.

    You will have to wait for the exam reports, which won't be published until after results day.

    Love the particular reference to edexcel chemistry - nasty paper that was. :coma:

    but i don't think teachers can actually say how people found it. My teacher marks edexcel biology papers and when we asked him what was on the markschemes he told us he couldn't tell us anything. We'd stay stuff like "is this allowed" and he'd go "maybe, maybe not". So much for clarity ey! :rolleyes:

    Yep, definitely agreeing there!

    But I don't think we'll know anything until the examiners' reports are published (on results day?) OP. Of course, we'll know our grades then too so won't really matter as much!

    why the need to know what the examiners thought of the exams?

    What they think of the exam means very little
