    I did the A2 Maths a year early, hence the A* prediction. I was only 1% off an A* which is very annoying. Other than that, I am very happy!

    I have been super lucky as although I missed my grades for imperial I was still accepted, which I never would have expected them to do. B was down to a u in my practical which kind of sucks and was unexpected. I feel very lucky and am over the moon that I am still able to go to imperial

    Predicted by Teachers (my prediction)

    Law -C, B if I worked hard (after exam D)
    Sociology - B (B)
    Psychology - B (A)
    English Language - A (after exam C)

    Got
    Law -A
    Sociology- A
    Psychology -A
    English Language - B

    Comments
    Really surprised with law as that was the subject I was going to drop (not so sure now). Quite disappointed with English Language but I messed up on the paper as I only planned to do 1 category. Might have to re-sit to aim for an A.

    Subject: AS Classical Civilisation predicted B / achieved A
    Subject: AS History predicted B/ achieved A
    Subject: AS Latin predicted C (but really thought i'd gotten a B)/ achieved B
    Subject: AS English literature predicted B/ achieved B (getting remark as only a few marks off a B)


    Comments and reactions
    so happy with history and class civ as got near full marks on both which was really unexpected, hope my B goes up to an A in english so fingers crossed and so dissappointed with latin as did way better in lit module than expected but dissappointed and surprised with the D in my language paper as thought i'd done better. overall could have gone better.

    My AS grades:
    Benchmark Grades: Cs in all subjects

    Grades 1 (2/3)
    Key:
    1= Actual
    2= 1st Module
    3= 2nd Module
    * for Full Marks in any module

    Geography: A (A/A*)
    History: A (A*/B)
    Government and Politics: A (A/A)
    Chemistry: E (E/C/U)
    Critical Thinking: C (A/E)

    Comment:
    I think this proves Benchmarks fail. How the hell do I manage an A in one Crit Thinking and an E in the other - There is no real skill involved! Woop over Geo, Hist and Politics - and am still in reach of an A star with all of them. Just need those 90% next year.

    Wanna guess what I'm dropping

    English Literature: Predicted B/ Achieved A
    Philosophy: Predicted B/ Achieved B
    History: Predicted C/ Achieved B
    Drama and Theatre Studies: Predicted B/ Achieved C

    Comments: I'm quite shocked that I actually managed to get an A in english considering I haven't even been able to achieve anything near that grade before. So I'm very pleased, just a little bit disappointed by Drama, I might have to retake the written paper again.
