Sorry should say Mays paper...
We also did this in May. Not totally looked at the paper yet, but I think that there is one of the e-mail tasks that was Level 2 rather than Level 1 - the candidate had to find an e-mail from a person (who had sent two of them), then find the right file, save it and reply to someone, CC'ing it to someone else. For the low-ability students, I think this is too much.
It will be interesting to see the pass mark as it was 40/80 in January. Our kids also think that January's paper was quite a bit easier. Most kids seem to have finished with about 10-15 mins to go whereas the summer lot quite often hadn't finished.
As above ... I put three groups of Year 10 through it as well as the Year 11s who want to do diplomas next year. Not a single student out of 100 finished everything in the time. In January the exam was timed about right. I feel a complaint to AQA coming on...
(This was Level 2 by the way)
Thanks for replying. Im going to make a complaint to AQA next week...
How were peoples results?
All I can say, they must have lowered the pass mark for level 1 as mine were pretty good. Maybe my complaint worked
