    I did OCR MEI Maths (commonly known as Core Maths?) at A-level and I got an A, I did AQA Biology and I got a B.
    Congrats! Would you mind telling how me how you revised for maths specifically, e.g. what book did you use? What videos? Did you do all past papers and any tips please, I would appreciate it a lot.

    Really happy with my results and the fact I was accepted into my firm! Almost got the A* in Biology, had over 90% in both the A2 exams and overall but my practical ISA exam let me down. Was 5 UMS off an A in maths too but I fully expected the B so I'm happy.
    Excited to be moving on to what I want to do and I'm satisfied with what I got, know I could've done even better and so look forward to reaching my full potential at university!

    My biggest concern was English Literature because my AS result for it was a D (and got an E in the exam). I resat the AS exam this year and got an A! I also got an A in A2 coursework and the A2 exam! I'm so excited to go to my dream University to study my dream course! To summarise, if anyone's reading this thinking that they have no chance of achieving their dream because of less-than-great AS results, believe me you can. I've waffled on a lot so I'll leave it here! Have a lovely day!

    Slightly disappointed with my History grade (my exam turned out to be a shocker even though I thought it went okay) but I got into my first choice so I am over the moon! I made a late switch from English to History after realising I seriously didn't want to do English after all, and I am so glad I did! Not sure where that A* came from though, but I'm not complaining

    I'm really annoyed with my school. The marking for my art was incorrect where I got 100% for all my art AS resit and yet the work which was clearly way better than my AS for A2 was all marked down to a B? Im assured it was A* material and the teachers said it was aswell. Its ridiculous. I feel happy about my maths however undenably dissapointed with my physics. I worked so incredibly hard to try and get an A and again the ISA at our school was marked down. Plus two exams I thought I did well in and I apparently hadnt? I dunno if to gap year and resit.

    Well done to everyone though
