    Wait for the grade boundaries even if you got 0/6 in that question you could still easily get an A* in this paper, plus there are the other papers

    I literally need like 115/120 ish. I missed 2 points on 6 marker. 1 point on the coil and magnet and last question. Got 1 calculation error and 1 MC wrong. I think ive lost 15-20 marks. Which isnt good enough because i wont do amazibg in unit 5. Really wanted the A* this year. I only need an A though.
    Whats your prediction for A*? I hope its 60. Last year was 62 and i dropped 5 marks in my mock in that paper and this years should he lower as it was harder.

    I did IAL, so I don't know what your paper was like (IAL was easier than all the past papers so the grade boundaries will be ridiculously high), but usually even if you lose 15-20 marks you can still come out with an A*. Unit 5 is indeed more annoying, but it also has friendlier grade boundaries, so don't worry about it

    Does anyone know how lenient Cambridge are with missed offers? A girl from my school missed hers and got pooled, but that was only by one mark.

    On the whole not that lenient. There are a fixed number of places, not many miss their offers. You have to be one of the best cases for being let in-those who were ill or bereaved or had an stiff offer or met it with the wrong subject etc all get consideration. But if nobody else misses their offer in your subject/college there may not be space anywhere. Missed Medicine offer places go to those with open offers first.
    I have heard of people not getting in having only missed by 2 UMS. I think if you come from a disadvantage school or background they will perhaps be more willing to be lenient as more state school pupils miss their offers.

    Not very. Average grades are far higher than the average offer.

    Summer pooled to another college you mean? What subject was this for then?

    There isn't any general rule how lenient they are. It would all be case by case and the situation is different every year; by how much you missed, how many other people missed and by how much, etc. etc. if you only missed by a small margin you may well be accepted by the original college you applied to or may be put to Summer Pool. Or it's also possible you'll be rejected if they have enough applicants to fill the places. But if you miss it, it's always worth contact the college straightaway to ask if they can still accept you.

    Probably. If not, you'd have a very strong summer pool case.

    I feel like there should be this great sense of relief, but I'm not feeling it! At least I get to read what I want now, though.
