For a start, I am very pleased with my A level results. I got:
Further Maths: A
Which means I've secured a place at Warwick Uni to study Computer Science.
I can't help but feel unlucky. In Physics I was 2 UMS (out of 300 this year) off of an A* in the modules which go towards it. In Computing I was roughly 3 marks off of an A* in the 100 mark paper. In Further Maths I was 5 UMS (out of 600 over the two years) off of an A*. Yet I got a B last year in Music and somehow miraculously dragged it up to an A* this year.
I know that's how the system works, but when you look at it statistically, to have three examples of these near misses makes it seem like some greater power doesn't want you to succeed
Just to clarify, I'm not moaning, I'm happy. I'm ranting, because that's what the internet was invented for (I can probably find some science to back that up).
Feel free to join the rant, or rant at me for being so grade greedy
The great grade boundary rant...
