    Where did you apply to?
    I'm going to be applying to Cambridge to read CompSci + Maths - that means I need A*A*A at A-level.

    I dropped the **** out of chemistry and I'm glad it's gone for good
    Wasn't expecting the A in Further maths. Was a very pleasant surprise.

    Maths - Predicted A / Achieved A
    Further Maths - Predicted A / Achieved A
    History - Predicted A* (Don't ask) / Achieved C
    May I say you've got a nice mix of subjects there! (I'm judging by your decision to do further maths without taking a science means that you study mathematics for its own sake rather than merely as a tool for practical situations. Nice to see a fellow pure mathematician! ) Also, congrats on your grades!

    Pretty pleased! I'm a little disappointed that I got 86 UMS for FP1 as I got 100 on the 3 applied modules and core 1 & 94 on core 2...I'm nervous for fp2 next year.

    For AQA Further Maths, what are the requirements for an A*? Thanks!

    My school didn't enter us for the physics or history AS and instead we did these 'in-house' tests and coursework...I think my school are a little tight. :tea:

    I did maths and physics with those specs as well and I have marks for maths but none for physics, so I wouldn't worry
    Same with me, so I don't think the 0/0 is anything to worry about.
    How did your results go for Maths and Physics?
    I felt the papers were challenging but nothing too bad today.

    I've got to admit, I am disappointed with my psychology grade. I was really hoping for a B or an A. But it's okay! Since it doesn't count towards next year, I am determined to improve my grade. Apart from that, I am really happy with all my other grades

    Comments:
    I was extremely surprised about my A in Music Tech, because apparently it's quite hard to get an A in this subject.
    With my Maths, I'm still pleased about my B. But I'd still like to retake C2 and S1 to try and bump my grade up from a B to an A or A*
    Pretty surprised I got a B in German, considering I hate it. I'm dropping it.
    My Computer Science exam was a mock so I'm not too upset. Let's hope I get higher in the real thing..

    I hope to study Music Tech at Keele University!

    I'm quite surprised with my history grade, this morning I was devastated and shocked but now I'm going to get it remarked and go from there.
    Overall I'm happy but just still a little surprised, I was predicted an A* at A2 for history, and have consistently been getting high As so I'm not sure where I really went so wrong.. in one paper i got an A and in the other a C.
    I was expecting maths and had spoken to Cambridge who still encouraged me to apply on the open day, but don't think 2As 2Bs is anywhere near their standards!

    Comments and Reactions

    A bit annoyed with chemistry because I knew I wasn't going to do well - I wanted to drop the subject ever since I started it and had 0 interest in it (only took it in case I wanted to do a biology related course). For the most part I'm satisfied - hopefully the chemistry grade doesn't weigh me down in Uni applications. The low grade boundaries were a bit of a scare. At least now I'm doing subjects I enjoy Just gonna work hard from now on - stick to a self-study schedule and be well prepared well in advance of exams.

    It was a surprise 😅 I wasn't expecting all A's
    Great boundaries for biology and chemistry were quite low so it helped.

    • Economics: Predicted A / Achieved B
    • Politics: Predicted A / Achieved A

    A lot better than expected! I was fearing the worst as I tend to be quite panicky in exams when compared to my performance at home or in mocks (e.g. I got 100 UMS in my last FP1 mock but only got 82 in the real exam Still, I can't complain though; let's hope I can get the A* in FM in next year's set of modules!).

    I'm disappointed that I missed the A* in Maths (my ambition is to go to Warwick; they like to see an A* in Maths) but I knew I wouldn't get it as I was a bit sleep deprived (about 4 hours of sleep prior ) going into the C4 exam (managed to get 73/100 UMS though, so not bad for someone stuck in zombie mode (was expecting 40!), although at home - whilst fully awake - I can consistently get mid/high 60's out of 72 (roughly 90+ UMS), so a bit peeved...).

    I'm a bit annoyed about econ, especially since OCR doesn't tell you the scores for individual modules, so I'm not sure if I flopped the micro or the macro exam. Still, a B is ok I guess.

    Lastly, politics was quite interesting. I got 62/100 UMS in Unit 1 (which is a C) but somehow managed to get 100 UMS in Unit 2!

    Future ambitions

    I hope to study Mathematics at Warwick University and become a Sixth Form Maths teacher when I'm older.

    predicted 3 Cs and a B in media:

    media = A
    psychology = B
    english lit = B
    sociology = C
    !!!

    overwhelmed with media. i got 100/100 in the coursework (somewhere along the way it got bumped up from 99???) and 93/100 in the exam after being stuck on getting around 70 in exams!!! i wrote 21 pages. i feel sorry for the examiner that read this but also very thankful that they gave me that mark.

    4 people who took it got Bs in english and 2 people that took it got Bs in psychology lmfao. though i'm still looking for grade boundaries for both to see how close i was to an A/C!

    also - we don't talk about sociology. i'm glad that lesson is finally out of my life.

    glad to see many people happy with their results! if you're not, you have a whole year to step up your game good luck 2 everyone
