    I just got my AS results back, AAC, which I'm very pleased with.

    A's were in Government and Politics (94%) and Geography (88%).

    C grade was in Economics. My teacher was surprised, I'd gotten A/B grades in all of the mock papers. I found the exams quite tough, but thought I'd hopefully get a B grade. We're getting the papers back, and I'll resit them in May (we have to in Economics if we get less than an A).

    So, next year, I'll be predicted A*AA, possibly A*A*A if my Geography teacher is nice enough...

    ok so I would appreciate some useful advice...I was rejected by my firm as they wanted a minimum of ABB, and now have an unconditional offer at my insurance. However, I was only one mark off getting the ABB and hence have sent one of my papers for a priority remark. If it does go up and I do get the ABB I need, are my firm choice obliged to accept me or not, since they have now rejected me?
    Have you tried emailing them too to say that you were only 1 mark off? The person on the other end does have a soul :P so there's a chance they'll understand how dire it is to miss out by one mark.

    All the best with the remark.

    Has anyone ever sent off a science based exam for remark, and had the mark go up? I don't see how it's possible for my Chemistry exam (F332), considering that they're basically yes/no answers.

    Thanks .

    You should try to cover at least one module a month, not taking into account potential resits. This gives you time to practice past papers and to catch up on other subjects should you happen to fall behind for some reason.

    Yes... Doubtful. Humanities typically benefit (potentially) more from remarking... since subjective. It's not uncommon for STEM re-marks to actually decrease. :awesome:

    Hey everyone I hope you all got the grades you wanted and deserved

    I received my As grades yesterday and achieved AAAA in my four main subjects (maths physics chemistry biology) which I am obviously very pleased with, but got an E in general studies which is compulsory. That E was partially due to me not trying that much in the exam because its general studies and partially because I was ill in the exams. So I was wondering if that bad grade will count against me or ruin my chances of getting into medicine next year? Anyone have any experience like this? Hopefully I will be allowed to drop it next year anyway
    In simplest terms no, most universities even exclude general studies as one of the three a levels they accept. So don't worry they will only be interested in the four As (congratulations on that!) just continue your hardworking and you'll be fine

    Achieved A C C at A2 I'm somewhat pleased only because I'm 1 UMS off a B and it's going to be difficult getting 1 mark off a PSYB1 paper but I'm going to try.

    I'm laughing at my History retake because I did worse than last year and I cannot understand why, but there is no point remarking because it won't affect my overall grade. So I'm very happy with my C because it was a very difficult subject for me.

    Finally achieved an A in Law after being 1 mark off an A CONSTANTLY. Aha!

    Got into Bristol UWE regardless of being 20 points short. Happy days!

    Haha yes I did exactly the same! Although looking at the course content I've realised that I've seriously forgotten so much chemistry - I might need to go over my notes a few times before we go! :P Have you thought about which option modules you want to do yet? I don't know whether I want to do the molecules in action one or something else

    Oh yes I'm looking forward to matriculation so much! Also can't wait to get a gown I'm going to feel like Harry Potter :P Is Collingwood a gowned college? Haha yes location was a deciding factor in college choice :P

    I know, definitely! Those are amazing results, well done! Yeah same for me with maths, thought I'd failed C4! :dontknow:
    Haha, it's fun isn't it? And yeah, I think that's something both of us will have to do... Go over chemistry, and for me maths as well! :L Which bits are you feeling a bit hazy on? I think it's the organic stuff in chem for me and some of the electrochemical cell stuff as well... I think I will pick either molecules in action or a maths module... I don't know yet, but am leaning towards molecules in action because it sounds really interesting and we get to do quite a bit of maths in Core Chem B anyway... Which option module were you thinking of doing, aside from German obvs? )

    I'm quite looking forward to doing German for scientists actually, I was worried it would have like loads of literature in it but it sounds a bit like doing more challenging GCSE writing assignments, if you know what I mean? It'll be fun to do German again!! That's something I should go over a bit again as well lol!

    Ooooo, I know!! It's going to be such a special, once-in-a-lifetime event isn't it? I always imagine it being really formal and hallowed if you get what I mean... Kind of like the Sorting in Harry Potter to keep in theme with what you were saying! Yeah no Collingwood don't wear gowns... Just smart clothes! It'll be fun to see so many colleges in their gowns on the day though!

    Ohhh thank you so much!!! I am very happy with them, and am just glad that A levels ended the way they did! ) I'm glad C4 went better for you than you thought it did as well! It's the best when that happens! D

    If you think you could get an A in Chemistry then don't choose another subject because it might be easier. I honestly think anyone can improve if they tried hard enough during the year as I was in your situation last year as I only got a C in Chemistry but my teachers still saw my potential to do well so predicted me an A in the subject, I decided to take 3 out of the 4 exams during the June exam season and increased the first unit from a D and E to 1 mark off an A, the first A2 unit from a D to an A* standard and the final unit I got as an A* standard as well. Unfortunately because my coursework was marked down from the mark I was told by my teacher I only got a B but it was only 1 mark away from the A grade and 13 UMS off the A* grade too. So with enough determination and motivation you can get the grade you want, just need to put in enough time I will also mention I only had 2 months from deciding I was doing all the units until the exams where I had to relearn 2 of the units again as I hadn't looked at them in a while so just don't go for Maths because it may be easier as its not a subject that is for everyone. Best of luck with whatever decision you decide to make and if you need anymore help then just ask and I'll try my best to help you out.
    Well I thought did okay in my chemistry exam but ended up with a D and A2 isn't going to get any easier-so I don't really think it's my thing :s and it's not like I have to have chemistry. And retakes are a hassle too. Also it was the second unit that I got a D in and tbh I didn't really like it and from my revision guide I see that most of A2 is based upon that unit. Also I looked on the Internet and most people say A2 chemistry is really hard and harder than maths. I know not everyone's the same but I think maths is more once you get it thats it whereas chemistry is learning content and then how to answer the questions.
    I think if I try in maths I can get an A and I was only one mark off an A this time.
    So think I'm going to go with maths.
    Thanks for all your help

    Same here. I don't know whether to get it remarked.

    What you can expect to be predicted: Anything between AAB to A*A*A

    Depends on UMS and how willing your teachers are to give you a higher prediction.

    I got a D in one of my psychology exams but I was 10 UMS (5 raw marks) away from an overall A, do you think I should get a remark?
