    To some extent grade boundaries day is worse than results day.

    How?
    Most people pretty much know their raw Mark +/-1 but the grade boundaries are slightly more unpredictable. Guess it's just my opinion.

    If you've been able to work out what mark you've got and see the grade boundaries are high and realise you've missed the grade you were aiming for, I guess.

    But that's why they aren't scary, because it's less official IMO.

    It depends on if they are cashed in or not. If they are and they are certificates then yes, you will have to declare them.
    Even if they aren't cashed in, you have to declare them, no? Like AS grades

    I was under the impression that cashing in meant you received an Advanced Subsidiary in that subject, which means you can't take further exams to get an A-level

    I agree

    I know my marks for C3 and C4 Maths (+/-1) and have taken a well thought out guess for all my other subjects. It all comes to grade boundaries now...

    Fingers crossed!

    That's only really in maths and some science papers - even science ones can be hard to predict. You remember what you think you wrote (to a worded answer), but it might not be what's conveyed to the examiner.

    The only event I'm interested in is the 100m race. Other than that, I think the Olympics is an overrated and overhyped sporting event.

    I had a nightmare last night that I got CEE and was desperately ringing round unis trying to find one that would take me (if I get those grades I won't even try, I'll just retake the exams next year)



    OMG I never even thought of that :eek:
    Yh even London met won't accept CEE it maybe they do idk but you won't get those grades lol... I had another dream that I got AAE and the E was in psychology cause they gave me 0 for all my papers cause the exam board had found out I had used model essays like oh my god ahh 😰
