    I knew it was goin to be hard, but the bmat test specimen papers on the website and in the books did the exam no justice.

    Plus I think there way too many maths questions, HOWEVER the writing task questions I thought were okay. I did 1.

    What did you think ?

    I honestly cannot tell about the first two sections - I'm just glad there weren't TOO many physics questions.

    The writing task might have been the hardest I've tried, but it was doable. I did the second one.

    Oh well, not a lot of point in worrying about it now.

    It was really hard allround. Essay was easy. Except i ran out of time and didn't finish the essay. I spent too much time planning and then couldnt copy it all out in the end. I'm crying lol.:rolleyes:

    30th november - if you did it at your school or college you'll get it there, or open centres should send them to you. I did it at an open centre - that means I'll get the results a little late, won't I?

    At least we ALL found it hard, and the scoring is based on a normal distribution of all our results.. so hopefully it'll look better than it was!

    i really messed up the essay, i had too many ideas running through my head and the man already announced 15minutes left before i could even get a word onto paper.. so i rushed that and think i messed that one up!
    section 1 wasn't too bad, it was similar enough to the examples ive seen, section 2 was a lot harder than the online examples and not feeling too confident.. overall.. i think i didn't do too well... :(

    I felt the essay was the only section I was prepared for, the only section that was similar to the one in the book.

    But has the scoring ever gone down or has it simply increased ?? I mean that the garde boundaries, is harder now to achieve a grade 6 than it was before ???

    The one good thing about section 1 was we didn't have to work out a numerical answer, coz they were all multiple choice!

    I found it all tricky, many guesses, hopefully educated ones...hmm...
    I did question 2 for the essay, wasn't as bad as i expected but then i was the most worried about that section
