    I am soooooo happy! I never thought in a million years I'd get more than 1 A*, yet here I am. Hard work really does pay off! Only didn't get my predicted in Further Maths and PE, but who really cares about them?

    Future ambitions
    Something English-related which is why I am so happy with my grade in that, and my UMS score

    Comments and reactions
    over the moon, wasn't expecting anything close to this. econ i was convinced i'd failed, chem i thought i would get an A. annoyed at english lit ever so slightly because i'd been working at A* standard the whole year and thought my essays were good enough but i don't really care

    Future ambitions
    double maths physics and french for a level then probs maths at uni, not too sure after that

    English Language: A*
    Media Studies: A*
    Performing Arts: Distinction * & Distinction
    English Literature: A
    Additional Science: B
    French: B
    Geography: B
    Religion Studies: B
    Mathematics: D (2 from a C, school is getting is remarked).

    These results would have been perfect if not for that ugly D in maths just ruining everything. I'm praying that karma is good to me so that I don't have to do maths next year....

    Maths: Predicted C / Achieved A
    English literature: Predicted A* / Achieved A
    English language: Predicted A / Achieved A
    French: Predicted A / Achieved A
    Chemistry: Predicted B / Achieved A
    Physics: Predicted A / Achieved A
    Biology: Predicted B / Achieved A
    History: Predicted A / Achieved A
    Geography: Predicted B / Achieved A
    Music: Predicted D / Achieved A

    Comments and reactions
    I could have done better, but I'm not going to dwell on that, because I don't think 10 As is too shabby! Though I'm not taking it next year, I'm most happy about music, since I surpassed what I was predicted, the same with maths. All in all I'm pleased- I put in quite a lot of hard work and I think it shows!
    Future ambitions
    Next year I'm taking physics, chemistry, maths and French in the hopes of becoming an engineer later on in life. I'm aiming to get all A*s in my AS exams, but we'll see about that

    Well done everyone!

    Results: English Language:/ Predicted A / Achieved B (Exam went awful and elated that I did so much better than expected)
    English Literature:/ Predicted A / Achieved A
    Maths: Predicted A*3 / Achieved A (Hopping between A and A*, lower than final predicted grade but boundaries pushed higher, so not bothered)
    Geography: Predicted A* / Achieved A (Only one I'm not happy with. I know it's still an A but in exams I did, I never dropped below A*, and in one unit I got a B bringing the grade down)
    RE: Predicted B / Achieved A

    Core Science: Predicted B / Achieved A
    Additional Science: Predicted B / Achieved A
    Further Additional Science: Predicted B / Achieved A* (Not expected at all, teachers were very convinced I was a B grade student)
    Art: Predicted B / Achieved A
    Business Studies BTEC Level1/2 First: Predicted Dist* / Achieved Dist*

    ICT ECDL: Predicted B / Achieved Dist* (Were doing GCSE then switched halfway through...)

    Overall really happy with my results, but devastated for some others. I have a few friends which are supposed to be coming to me to sixth form. One was predicted mostly A's and A*s, but got all C's and one B, making him unqualified for all A Level courses apart from Maths. Over the joy of my results I'm just feeling upset for him and hope he manages to get into the school. He worked so hard.. Another friend got what he needed, but underperformed on some subjects which surprised me.

    I got 259/300 in Spanish GCSE Aqa and I got an A. Does anyone know what I would need for an A*

    Think it was 270, at least it was for French so i'd assume it'd be the same. Check the UMS grade boundaries

    business: A (edexcel gcse)
    eng lang: A* (edexcel igcse)
    eng lit: A* (edexcel igcse)
