    Everyone needs C in Maths and English, but when people do well on the test they put the mark scheme up so only certain people get C's?!?

    That means they'll always be people who don't reach C and have to retake it, even if they got C in the original mark scheme.

    Maths usually you only need 35 in both papers so it's not too bad but English language you need 41/80 plus good coursework!

    AGH THE STRESS IT KILLS :afraid::afraid::afraid::afraid:
    Hopefully I am predicting:
    English Literature- A
    English Language- A
    Product Design- A
    OCR IT- L2D
    Geography- A*
    Maths- A*
    Physics- A*
    Chemistry- A*
    Biology- A*
    RE- A*
    Citizenship- A*

    But if I have to be a bit simple minded, I'm guessing I could get:
    English Literature- B
    English language- B
    Product Design- A
    OCR IT- L2D
    Geography- A
    Maths- A*/A
    Chemistry- A*
    Physics- A*
    Biology- A*
    RE- A*
    Citizenship- A*

    I really do hope I only get A*s and As overall for GCSE grades.
    I wish you all the very best of luck in getting very good grades (going to be more religious for these few weeks now)

    Honestly, this year edexcel maths exams were pretty straight forward if you compare it to last year. I felt 2014 was the easiest year but some still argue that 2016 was better so I maximum 135. I'll be surprised if it's higher than that.

    I honestly think it will be 130 as its a 5 mark increase from last year and november 2015 was 135 for an and they dont repeat grade boundaries.

    there is no rule to not repeat boundaries, they can if they see fit. in an ideal world they'd like the boundaries to be the same every year. i personally predict 169 for A* and 135 for A. remember that november boundaries are useless to go by as well

    this doesnt include 2015 but 2014 was far easier than 2016 so 130 would make sense

    i wouldnt say so personally. 2014 had a difficult 4 marker which relied on knowing miles to km conversion. statistics showed very few A* students knew this...

    hmm true but this years sine and cosine question was much more tricky to understand whereas 2014 it was more obvious to get also this years inverse proportion used the sign which a high number of people didn't know

    What you think you've got: 8A* 4A

    Predicted grades: 12A* but they can get in the bin.

    What you've actually got:

    How are you feeling about results day?
    I'm anxious, mostly because my school is like a grade factory and some of the students are very eager to peek over your shoulder. I got 89% in a Latin practice paper once and I was told by one girl 'better luck next time' lmao.

    How are you going to open your results?
    With a cricket bat to prod away anyone who tries to look over my shoulder.
    What A levels are you doing? (if not what is your alternative)
    History, English, French and Philosophy
