      really didnt expect fibre to be on the exam i was convinced it would be iron or vitamin c.. i was happy with the fish question and the comsumer question tho and the elective.. you?

      didnt like q1 at all, felt it was too longwinded and dragged out nd it messed up my timing for the rest of the paper, when it said forms of vit d in q2 was it just chole/ergo calciferol or what?? :p other than that it was nice, nice SQs

      it was ok....Section B Q1 and the Elective 3 were not great though for me as i ran outta time for the Elective and rushed most of it. Although I thought that the short questions,B Q2 and Q4 were quite good. So annoyed addictive didn't come up as a long question :/

      Did anyone else fine Q1 describing the table very confusing :/

      question 1 was awful, too much emphasis on fibre through it all rest of paper was nice

      happy enough q1 wasnt great but q4 and the elective 1 were really good and q2 was nice enough too thats the worst exam over now :)

      Was delighted with the short questions, found part (a) and (e) on Q1 tough, delighted with Q2, taught Q5 was difficult to under stand what they were looking for, found the Elective 3 okay, delighted to see Poverty, found 3 (c) okay :)

      Thought it was a horrible paper!! There's not too much to write about fibre

      Did anyone do OL? How did you find it? The Elective was lovely I have to say :)

      Coeliac is a bowel disease

      What did people do for q5 when you talked about changing shopping patterns?

    19. avatar image


      A lot of people found the table in Question 1 confusing and hard to understand

    20. avatar image


      I wrote about 24 hour shopping, Internet shopping, multiple chain stores etc. For i Q5

      I wrote about music stimuli, loyalty schemes and bread making for ii

      And for the last I wrote bout the ombudsman. I dunno if this is 100% right though 😕

      My sister is a HE teacher and said the table is very confusing and hard to understand what they were looking for however they will most likely be lenient in the marking scheme to accomodate this !

      if anybody has other questions i will ask her for u
