    So UCAS already have our results? When did they get them?
    I presume so (sorry to intrude)
    When I logged on, it said "Limited functionality. Updates to track have been suspended between Monday 1 August and Monday 8 August while we process exam results" scary

    I'm aiming for an A as I did it as a intensive subject due to first year disappointments so hopefully my hard work paid off! But would be happy with a B, you?!and omg yes, the 15 markers especially for 4B was like.. :eek::eek::confused: was just so unexpected..how'd you find them?

    but 3B was alright i think!
    I need an A at least... Not feeling optimistic but yes, I too would be happy with a B at this point. :lol:
    Gosh, 4B had a beautiful 45 marker (nationalism :ahee:) but the 15 markers were ambiguous to say the least. I did the ecologism, multiculturalism and feminism ones - you?
    For 3B I did the anarchism 45 marker and for 15 markers the socialist collectivism one, the anarchism one and conservatism. I missed out on the evolutionary road question because I didn't realise I knew how to answer it...

    (Original post by EmilyPlatypus)
    3C wasn't so great... the 15 markers were shocking and we all complained about them afterwards so I'm glad I wasn't the only one. 4C went much better but I only just got an A last year so I'd have to get quite a high mark to keep that A and now I'm not so sure
    How'd you find it?
    Thank god I'm not alone with the 15 markers - hopefully we all did better than we think atm and perhaps the grade boundaries will reflect that? I feel like this year was quite harsh. :lol: I need to go up from a B last year to an A this year... I hope it does turn out well for you though!

    No

    The report is on historical data up to 2015.

    Track is locked at the moment for the Scottish and Access results.

    Track will lock down for A level results at 2pm on the 12th with universities getting results through that night.

    I wish you luck also! Praying for those low grade boundaries really, politics stressed me out so much

    Yep! One from Liverpool and one from Lancaster! 100% sure I didn't get the grades though because physics hates me and I missed out too many questions on the exam that was supposed to be easy :confused:

    Posted from TSR Mobile
    Well done on the offers! I had 3 interviews and messed them all up unfortunately What were your offers? I heard Liverpool give higher offers to people who resit, not sure if it's true? Ah damn, yeah physics hates me too I will be lucky to get a C tbh! And I messed up ch5 and a few maths modules so badly! I just really hope I get 3 As somehow. Good luck, hopefully the grade boundaries will be low and save us this time! So what are your plans if you don't get the grades? Btw did you do AQA physics?

    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.
    Thanks! I just wanted to have a back up plan ready if I don't get the grades, also trying to distract myself from counting all the marks I've lost in the exams
    How was your first year at Cardiff btw? Were the exams hard? How are you finding medicine in general?

    Does anyone know if there are any unofficial mark schemes for OCR A2 chemistry F324 & F325? It's hard to go to sleep if I can't add up the marks for these papers like I do for maths :lol:

    So your ums is 81% for those 3 so 80% or above is an A, 70% or above is a B etc. For an A* this year you need over 90% average ums in 3 modules of FP2 FP3 S2 S3 M2 M3 I'm not sure about decision maths modules as I didn't do those sorry, hope this helps

    I think they do, if you're only resitting one or two subjects. My requirements weren't higher. I did OCR physics and it was the bane of my existence. The worst part is, I actually enjoy physics! I'm pretty sure I won't get in, so I really want to go through clearing, and do medical sciences at Exeter. Really hope they have places.

    How many subjects did you resit? Ikr I enjoy physics too but I skipped/didn't know how to answer so many questions! On the bright side my unit 2 resit from AS went pretty good this year, probs not enough to push my overall grade up much though. Ah that sounds good, so you hoping to transfer to medicine after first year? Exeter is great btw, I really liked it when I went there I'm sure they will, have you checked courses in clearing yet? I'm sure I saw a lot of medical sciences courses available!

    I understand I was an absolute wreck this time last year, many many nights spent adding and subtracting marks, but in the end it never was correct as you will never know how you have done until the marks are released.

    Medicine is literally a rollercoaster, I have loved it! There is a lot of work (a lot a lot of work... it literally never ends) but if your willing to work hard then it will be fine. Medicine is everything I had hoped for it to be, I am fascinated by everything we learn and it really is the right choice for me. As for social life, when exams come around not so much but I am involved in some societies and enjoy hanging out with friends. The exams for me were very hard, it was the sheer amount we had to learn which made revision seem never ending, but I put the work in and thankfully came out the other end with a very strong pass mark! As for Cardiff medical school, best decision I ever made was to come here!

    My advice to anyone who is waiting on results and medical school is around the corner, enjoy your summer! you have a lot of work ahead of you in september. if you want to chat more about anything feell free to PM me (dont want to take this thread to off topic) x
