    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.
    Tbf i don't think it's physically possible to finish a d1 paper in time unless you're extremely lucky

    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.

    Depends on when I wake up, I think. But if I wake up later I'll definitely check Track first, not results.

    I'm worried that my AS results will put off ICL, UCL, Bath and Surrey from wanting me. They are the only unis that i fell in lve with straight away!
