    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 😭

    I will ☺️ I really can't face a year of resitting 😩 I hope we both check track and it says congratulations😭😭

    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

    • Are you AS or A2? A2
    • What subjects are you taking? EPQ - English Lit, Economics, Maths, Religious Studies
    • To which university are you hoping to go? I have an offer from KCL but I'm almost certainly taking a year off so that I can reapply to Oxford, so will decline
    • To study which subject? Philosophy, Politics and Economics
    • If applicable, what were your AS grades? AAAD (D in Maths)
    • What grades are required for your desired degree? A*AA however I'm hoping to get A* (EPQ) A*A*A*A
    • What grades are you predicted? A* (EPQ) A*A*AB
    • How did your exams go? Well I think, ran out of time in D1, C3 and C4 went well and I may have just clinched an A* but not sure All of my other subjects went pretty well as usual, I'm only really worried about Maths as I cannot get the D I got last year...
    • How are you feeling about results day? Apprehensive after having bad results days in the past, but I also really really really want to know what I got
    • Anything else to add? Does talking about results day make it sooner? Does checking unofficial mark schemes in anyway give me a hint as to how I did? No? Oh.

    I think I just didn't realise the amount of practice I needed to do - I thought I could get away with putting as much effort in as I did for GCSE. Also I didn't have a great Maths teacher in AS year, though it was mostly down to me. This year Maths has been my #1 focus and I've worked tirelessly to get a good grade - including retaking AS. I think and hope I'll get an A and just might get an A* but we'll see. If worse comes to worse I am on a gap year so I could retake, but I really don't want to.
