    Hey all. I did CIE Alevel this may June. The syllabus was different and all the paper patterns were completely different too.
    I want to know what is the possibility of me getting an A in the subjects I did. To be mentally prepared.
    I did Bio in Oct Nov 2015 got a high B. Paper 1 was C paper 2 A paper 3 C
    I did Phy in Oct Nov 2015 got a High C 2-3 marks away from a B my teacher said. Paper 1 B paper 2 C paper 3D
    And I am doing the whole of chemistry.
    I was not told my UMS marks.

    My Bio paper 4 was good. In the worst case scenario for all the paper,
    For Bio I am confident I will get between 60-70/100. Paper 5 for Bio 20-25 /30
    For Phy , paper was hard and different. So idk how the threshold will be. So paper 4 50-60/100 ,all this is worst case scenario. Paper 5 15-20/30
    for chemistry,I am very scared. Because I know Bio Whatever happens at least I can manage an A and B in Physics. Although my teacher predicted me A.
    For Chemistry,its different. So Paper 4 wwas the worst paper I ever did. Worst.so bad. Everyone was crying. Paper 4 40-50/100
    Paper 2 25-30/60
    Paper 326-30/40
    Paper 5 24/30
    Paper 1(I still have to do. So imaging I get 20-27/40.

    I just want to know in the worst case what can I get?

    Because I worked really really hard. Everyone saw me do that and the papers except Bio were not satisfying. I feel horrible and I don't know what to do.
