    Damn that M3 really was horrendous huh. Glad I chose to do fp3 instead of m3 as my extra module. Feel really bad for people, like yourself, who depend on m3 for their overall grades. It's such bs imo that exam boards can pull this stuff off and get away with it.

    I need an A* in maths, so 90 avg in C3 and C4, and 15 ums in an applied (lol).

    Only need AA in f maths and physics, and thanks to my AS ums, in fm I just need to avg 200 ums over 3 of the 4 modules I took. And mid E's in my physics exams lol.

    Hey, at least FP4 was standard this year, from what I heard. Btw, any reason you didn't sit any stats or decision? Maybe you did S1/D1 at AS? But no A2?

    Also, pray to the aqa lords for a good grade boundary day!! Imagine C3 is like 70 for an A*, truly ****ed.

    It really was. I know its so annoying, its like so annoying how they just mess with people's futures. Ah i see i need what i said before plus an A in german. ( i took maths, further maths and german)

    Yeah FP4 was standard, and i thought C4 and M2 were quite good/ok. M3, FP3, and C3 were the worst i've ever done by far. I would have done a decision or stats but my school just entered my class for the modules they have taught to A2 in previous years which were the FP modules and Mechanics 3. But personally i think those modules are harder than the decision and stats ones so wish i coud have done one of those. In AS i did FP1, S1 and D1 and got 255/300 UMS, and 240 UMS was an A. So this year i need 165 UMS for my B in further so need 165 ums over M3, FP4, FP3, so workd out i can get C, C, D and still get a B overall. But in just maths i need A A B in the papers to get an A overall but i think i may have a C in C3, due to how diabolical it was .

    lets just pray that the grade boundaries reflect it!! im sure if 9.5 thousand students complained, then the grade boundaries won't be too high

    Be sure to make your daily prayers to aqa for C3 boundaries, it sounds like your in the same boat as me, uni just depends really on C3:yes:

    It's finally hit me, I'm getting an uneasy stomach just thinking about checking track on the 18th 😭

    Should be, you might have to wait a bit as the person who downloads them from the AQA secure site does so by hand and it's quite time-consuming.

    Grade statistics?
    Yes like the list of subjects and percentages of people who got each grade ; I find it very interesting to look at as you can compare it against grade boundaries to see whether people improved or not from the year before
