    • 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.
    How on Earth did you get a D in maths with everything else being excellent if you don't mind me asking?

    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.

    The one this year was horrific though, because it was actually a very easy paper and I knew how to answer everything. But they made us draw so many damn diagrams I couldn't cope

    Exactly. It's why d1 is my least favorite unit. You're not tested on maths ability. You're tested on writing speed. I couldn't finish it either. And i don't know anyone that did.

    Edexcel D1 here, I just about finished BUT I completely ********ted the last question in the hopes of maybe picking up 1 method mark. Scheduling AND a Gantt chart in the same exam... I don't think I've seen that before

    Anyone planning on checking UCAS first before getting your results ?

    Imagine getting your firm and finding out they were kind enough to take someone with EEE 🙄
    Though most mid ranked Uni's are more likely to do this I guess ?

    I don't think I will have the courage to check UCAS before getting my results! Although I seem to be in the minority there

    I know right. I'm already planning how to do my A2 year all over again. If I miss my offer I'll be totally gutted.
