1. Yeah, I understand that. I just find it hard to believe that it was so hard, 158/200 was all that was needed for an A*. I worked hard to get myself inleast 180/200 marks, but it turns out it wasn't necessary, it's just a kick in the teeth
2. i know, well better safe than sorry but anyway i'm glad i got like 170 and thought i missed it, evidently not

But surely, isn't it better to know almost for sure that you have your A*, rather than having to rely on those last few marks to make sure that you reach the boundary?
I mean, I did so much revision and I'm hoping that I got an A* - but if I was over the boundary that wouldn't bother me as long as I got the mark

4. Yeah, you're right. I'm happy about it, it's good I got above the boundary, oh and good luck on your results too
5. thank you very much everyone, I get my result tomorrow morning, soooooooo scared, need this A
6. What do you need for an A?
7. 126 i think, so yeah that's 63 on each paper which i don't think i've got
8. has anyone got their results yet?
9. apparently some people have got them today :s
10. Teachers got our results today, and for the people who are 5 marks away from C it will be send back for remark.
