I thought the close reading was really dull and kinda difficult but think last years was harder. I found the essay questions OK because we did To Kill a Mockingbird which has an unusual Narrative technique and Visiting hour which I did for Setting because it had loads of descriptive things about the hospital so I found this years essay questions easier than last year bueveryone in my year that wasn't in my class had a night mare so I reckon the grades will be the same if not a little bit (a Mark or Two MAX) higher.

do u think that there is the possibility that we should overthrow the SQA and devise a new examiner which respects us?

Guys, guys. This happens every year! Now, I'm not saying your exam wasn't hard but, it wasn't as hard as recent year's. I agree that the grade boundaries will remain stable or will be slightly elevated. However, there is no reason to be moaning about the SQA as they have actually sharpened themselves up (a bit) over the last couple of years.
Half ideas,half quality, half a million pound law suit!

a prelim exam is an exam written by your teachers. The grade boundaries which they will use are the guidlines set out by the sqa namely:

A - 70%+
B - 60%-69%
C - 50%-59%

If i am not here i am somewhere else
