    ohh I see! why so early? had u gone through all the content?
    I need an A on this exam, 88ums. thats if I havent improved on my 2 resits, im hoping I have though. need an A overall for uni. wbu?
    Not really no, we focused on unit 3 until 2 weeks before buss4 when we started it, hence why most of us failed. I need an A overall too, I did 'poorly' on unit 1 first time cos I got 1 marks into the A, so I'm hoping to pick up marks there! #prayforme

    really regret YOLOing my biology practicals now
    Going from my school, whether you YOLO your Bio practicals or study really hard, they're still impossible to do well in.

    Does anyone know whether when your teacher/s have marked your coursework and given it a mark and then send it off for the examiner to mark it, the examiner would change it if they think it deserves higher(or lower) I was just wondering cos think my coursework is gonna put me back and some last minute improvements made me wonder if the examiner would think it was slightly better than my teacher. It was aqa english lit B and it was on a Shakespeare text and Educating Rita too

    Also does anyone know if the drama aqa as boundaries change (dunno if it's A or B or whatever) with the practical exam, not the written? Cos think my teacher said they might change, hoping they will cos I was only 2 measly marks off a B at As and just hoping that the boundaries lower by 2 marks for the practical side! (the written won't change cos that was in January) If anyone knows answer asap please! Thanks!x

    I thought it was impossible to do anything other than YOLO your biology practicals, since all we get told is the title of the task, and get absolutely no feedback on how to improve on the previous practicals that we drastically failed...

    *is also bitter *

    Grade boundaries for pretty much every subject changes every year. This includes course work and I am pretty sure it will change for English although I am not sure about drama because it is performance based.

    Edit the examiner can change the marks that you are given and the grades can increase or decrease
