    C3 Gold 4 (56/75)

    Did most of June 2013, and then realised that most of the questions were from Gold 4 anyway (I reckon i got around 60)

    C3 June 2013 R (60/75)

    C3 June 2005 (69/75)

    I went from CNN to Fox News.

    Did a bunch of Comp3 papers (78,70 and 72)

    Got my Grades! I exceeded BBB, I got A*BB.

    A* In history:
    Unit 1N : 75/100 (Should have redone it tbh)
    Unit 2D : 95/100 (****ing surprised I did so well)
    Unit 3B: 109/120 (Exceeded expectation, I may actually ask for my manuscript back)
    Unit 4X: 77/80 (About what I expected)

    AS Percentage: 85% A
    A2 Percentage: 93% A*

    366/400 A*

    B in Mathematics:

    C1 : 79/100 (last year, ok)
    C2 : 83/100 (A wee bit disappointed)
    C3 : 90/100 (Slightly better than I expected)
    C4 : 70/100 (Better than expected)
    M1: 91/100 (****ing smashed it really happy with it)
    D1: 56/100 (Irritates me a lot since I put a lot of work into it only to get a hellish paper, the guy I know who got 4 A*s only got 70 in it)

    Overall : 469/600

    AS percentage: 84.3% A
    A2 percentage: 72% B

    Computing B:

    Comp1 : 109/120 (I know I smashed it, still better than I expected)
    Comp2 : 62/80 (Last year, meh)
    Comp3: 77/120 (V disappointed in this)
    Comp4: 46/80 (Furious with teacher since I put tons of work into it)

    Overall : 294/400

    AS Percentage: 85.5% A
    A2 Percentage: 61.5% C

    Overall, the only thing I think I would change after that Is that I wouldn't have relied nearly as much on my computing teachers. I could have taught myself the whole course at home honestly.

    I never thought I would be in a position where I can get a £2k bursary for academic excellence.
