    Anyone do Edexcel A2 Biology (units 4 and 5)? How did you find them and what do you think grade boundaries will be?
    Unit 4 was the worst exam I have ever done! I was getting A*'s in the past papers but when it got to the exam I just didn't know what to write 😞. Unit 5 was good though. I think the grade boundaries will be lower than last year but probably not by much.

    Hey! Do you know which med schools accept resits? And any that want AAA but don't require an A in biol? I'm pretty sure I didn't get an A in biol, I've looked at a few so far and found they all want an A in biol unfortunately
    As far as im aware exeter accept resists, but other than that im not to sure, have a look online because they will say.

    The one thing I will say is right now dont get caught up in doubting yourself, you will make yourself so much more scared for results day by doing this, best idea is to just ignore the options and see what happens.

    Yeah, unit 4 was a hard exam! I found unit 5 alright. I think it was 64 for an A* in unit 4 last year and 61 in unit 5 last year for an A*. Do you think unit 4 and 5 will be lower than those this year?

    I think on the 17th, as they normally come out the day before results day (this is the case for gcse anyway)

    Ah, just didn't want to come out? It is pretty cosy in there. I'm the opposite, got a bit stuffy so I came out a month early, parents were very pleased

    There isn't any exact day for when they come out. It's usually a day before results but it can be a day or two earlier.
