    The point about chess tournaments is void because every sport has competitions outside of the olypics.
    And that is only your understanding. There used to be knitting, hot air ballooning, poetry ect. At the early modern olypics. They were removed because it was decided that the olympics should be for armatures who don't make a living from their competition, but since the 'eddy rule' that isn't the case anymore and atheleats are full time so they should bring them back.

    Also it strongly depends on your definition of a sport.
    Hmm fair enough, can't argue with that.

    From what I've seen on the TV guide, it's on non stop for about 15 hours some/most days. It's ridiculous.

    Lol I had a dream it was the day before results and I was frantically looking at grade boundaries
    I looked at grade boundaries the day before last year's results and I deeply regret it :/

    For A levels are the boundaries released before the results? They were for my diploma the night before and I think it calmed me down

    Yes but the olympics are meant for sports, which those are not. Plus there are chess tournaments and stuff so maybe it would be better to say you want those to have more global recognition?
    chess is a sport

    Olympic Recognition. Chess has been recognised as a sport by the International Olympic Committee since 2000. It was an event at the Asian Games in 2006 in Doha and again in Guangzhou in 2010. It is also being considered for inclusion in the Pan-American Games. Tokyo is preparing bids for the 2020 summer Olympics and has invited chess and bridge to apply for inclusion. Russia is trying to bring chess to the winter Olympics.

    So I had my first results dream last night, ABB, not sure if that a good or bad thing, kind of makes me get my hopes up that i've done decently but makes me think i've done dreadfully at the same time.

    did you retake other stuff as well cause i know I'm gonna be close to the A* boundary but i haven't done well enough in c3 so I'm gonna resit c3 next year to try and get the A* aha ; pleased to know others with an A would happily try again cause that A* grade looks pretty damn good aha ... i really hope you get it ! personally i think i got like 90+ ums in c4 but like 78 in c3 lmao
    I retook 5 modules in total (3 Chem - 2 AS&1 A2, 1 Bio and 1 Maths) because I wanted at least A*AA (currently have ABB due to extenuating circumstances), although I'm starting to hope for more, but we'll see how it goes!

    Maths has always been my strongest subject tbh and I achieved a 91% average in C1-C3 with much less effort than i gave this year, so i felt that while i was resitting some other subjects i may as well give the A* in maths a shot! Thankfully I'm pretty pleased with my performance in C4 this year so i'm optimistic that I've accomplished my goal! hopefully you manage to still get the A* this year (you never know how the grade boundaries will go/ what method marks you'll get/ tbh its not fun doing alevel work during your gap year so I'm hoping you can avoid it at all costs :L)

    Same here, I need 83 for C4 this year as I got 97 on C3 this year. It went pretty well and people found it hard so ithink there'll be low boundaries hopefully xD

    Posted from TSR Mobile
    Yeah, I need 89 for C4 which I'm fairly confident i've done enough to get that so here's hoping we both get that A*! (also i think its worth mentioning you smashed C3 last year, so well done )

    I looked at grade boundaries the day before last year's results and I deeply regret it :/
    When I was doing GCSEs, I looked at grade boundaries.

    There was a biology paper that everyone found to be really difficult but i found easy.
    I distinctly remember either B2 or B3 being 30/60 for an A and 36/60 for an A*. I was like:

    "lmao. I know people found it difficult but god damn. Those boundaries are low as hell. I legit must've got full UMS. I only remember getting 2 or 3 questions wrong anyway. 54/60 is my aim"


    Ended up barely scraping an A on my ums mark. Which implies I must've got roughly 31/60.


    Moral: if everyone lost loads of marks, you probably did too. That being said, I'm still looking this year. Only difference is I won't be hyped if they're low. Especially for Physics and Biology
