Did anyone sit the AQA P3 exam on 30/5/12?? If so then how did you find it?

I found it to be much more difficult than all the other p3 mocks I have done! Does anyone else agree or is it just me?

I agree, the paper was hard.
I enjoyed the ray diagram, but questions like the hearing aid & about the 5Hertz. I simply had to guess. Hopefully the grade boundaries are low!
Kinda dreading results day now :|

Yeah weirdest p3 paper i've ever seen!!! It was nothing like any other past paper I guess as we're the last of this syllabus they 'wanted to go out with bang' or something lol! Check out the unofficial mark scheme though coz i thought i'd done really badly and just guessed my way thru most of the weird questions but it looks like i might hav done alright! 

Dreading results day now tho :O and still got p1 to do in june!!!

I think it was the way the questions were worded, it used examples I had never seen before

It might have gone better than you think, because it was a genuinely hard paper so the grade boundaries will be lower so the ums marks will be higher hopefully
