    The AQA paper seemed fine. Just a bit concerned about the diagrams for the designs in Q1, some may not have been sure it was a snack pot (less able), maybe a photo example would have been better. Also Q3 a i was a bit unclear i.e. did they want the ratio of flour to fat or the actual quantities? If it was the quantities they wanted they did not say what size the savoury flan was!
  3. Do you mean A2 or GCSE?
    Yes they came out smiling, A2 even weak ones were happy. A few Gcse were puzzled about the mixing of fats for pastry- have not used lard for years and only ancient recipes suggest the trad lard/butter split. Lucky it was only 3 marks.
