    Haha Yh but with me if I am flipping one topic I will find it hard not to just give up like idk
    Maybe it will make more sense in uni? Sometimes when re-learning something it can suddenly make a lot of sense because you know it all subcontously and your brain has had time to process it.

    I hope the changes to remarks mean examiners are more lenient in giving us the benefit of the doubt marks first time round so less people need remarks, but I doubt it

    We ( Ofqual ) now require exam boards to train their reviewers and make sure they only change a mark when there was an error with the original mark, such as where the number of marks in a paper have been wrongly added up, or where a marker has made a mistake. If the mark scheme has not been followed by the original marker, the reviewer will make sure the correct number of marks is given.medal rosetteWhere a reviewer simply disagrees with the previous marker’s judgement, however, and thinks a candidate’s essay answer is worth 16 marks out of 20 as opposed to the 15 awarded, the original mark will stand unless there is evidence that the original marker made a mistake when they marked. The changes to reviews will help us better understand how often marking errors are made and then decide how marking could be improved.

    If it was marked incorrectly then it would go up. Biology usually has a strict mark scheme and there is not much judgement involved (except from perhaps an essay-style question). This change is more targeted towards Arts subjects.

    Fellow WJEC maths person here! (Although I only sat C4 this year because I'm resitting in my gap year)

    How did you find C4 and C3 this year?
    Pretty sh*t tbh. Well C4 wasn't actually too bad but i definitely didnt get over 90% ums. How did you find it?

    Hi guys I finished my AS exams in the summer. The AS subjects that i sat examinations for are Further Maths, Maths, Chemistry and Physics. My predictions of the grades I achieved for the subjects that i listed respectively are, AAB(C/D). Would be supprised if the last two are higher grades.

    I really want to study a maths degree at university and was wondering if there are any older/fellow mathematicians that can relate to my predicted grades for AS. I'll be looking to continue Futher Maths, Maths and Chemistry to A Level

    *Also should I not enter my AS results on my UCAS application if i indeed get a C/D grade for Physics? Should i let the universities rely on the predicted grades that my teachers will give?

    I only resat C4 to get the A* as I already have an A, so thankfully I found it quite good - there were quite a few new variations of questions so I can see why people had trouble with it if they didn't spot how the numbers were manipulated, therefore couldn't figure out how to solve the questions. I'm hoping I've done enough to get the A*, good luck for your results!

    One thing I do know is that an A in Further Maths is very impressive, especially if it's not a low A (i.e if you look on course for an A* in further maths, very very few Uni's would turn you down.)

    I'm at A2, studied Government & Politics, Sociology, English Language, Media Studies and an EPQ. My firm offer is the London School of Economics, to study BSc International Relations. At AS I got AABC, I need AAA for my firm, and I'm predicted A*AABa. I feel like all of my exams went either good or perfect, bar half of the English paper. I think I'm more worried and panicking more than I probably should be.

    Universities can access module grades. Most won't bother though.
