    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
    I don't think I looked at Grade Boundaries for GCSE, but I can remember being so panicky about them... I was bricking it, but I was slightly relieved afterwards Ah that's exactly like me when I did my maths GCSE.... I came out of the first exam thinking 'oh... that wasn't so bad!' when everyone else was like 'how are you smiling that paper was awful!' :rofl: That's still pretty good though, well done! I did A Level English Literature and A Level English Language, and I chose to look at the grade boundaries for last year and Language went down but my AS Lit exam went badly and I looked at those boundaries and they had gone up :/ I just want results day to hurry up and be done with!

    it was OCR Crusades it was an interpretation. i saw it as it being about reasons for first crusades whereas others saw it as motivations.

    In my experience with those sort of issues the examiners accept any valid interpretation, so if enough people believed they had to talk about reasons then they'll usually award marks, and motivations and reasons will overlap anyway.

    it was reasons for the success of first crusade but yeah thats pretty much what my teacher said but its still stressing me out due to the uncertainty.

    AQA Lit boundaries are pretty stable each year so if you are doing AQA dont stress too much.

    I did do AQA Lit B But I knew straight away that I had failed AS, but I didn't know the true extent of my failure :rofl: I tend to stress about everything really... I mean, if someone does something to hurt me and we argue, I struggle to sleep until the issue is resolved, even if I have to apologize to them myself :rofl:

    On the plus side you get a clean slate at uni even if you mess up one or two exams (I did poorly in an A-level further maths module that was kind of a foundation for uni level maths, but I'm doing okay-ish-sorta-kinda-now )

    It's going to get even harder. After 12 we can say that results day is next week and I'm willing for time to slow down

    :lol: yeah.. don't be caught with 2 phones though :lol: (one being one of those nokia phones.. :erm:) maybe a cell phone will do though, and make it clear to the other person that you're calling from a cellphone.

    :rofl: I don't know either :iiam: obvs it's different from uni to uni but one guy who does Chem at my uni does a maths course for people who hate maths or don't have much practice with it, so you'll probably be fine :lol: it'll be the chem that's a nightmare tbh, I don't even know how you do it at A-level with OCR :eek4: :hide:
