    English language: A*
    Maths: A (disappointed but not surprise with the boundary)
    Chemistry: A

    Biology: A (A* in the exams but an A in coursework, my damn school ugh)
    Geography: B (very disappointed, not sure what happened)
    RE: A
    EPQ: A*
    French: A*

    Those are very good results! Don't put yourself down like that, and if you keep this up, going to Oxbridge is extremely possible. You seem like a passionate and determined person, don't let this get in the way of your dreams! I had 1 A* and the rest A's and I feel disappointed for similar reasons as you but I feel I shouldn't try to be hard on myself, and learn to improve even further. Not only that, you now know what to do sort of for your A levels as a result of what happen to your coursework. Keep pestering to your teachers till their ears bleed and I'm sure your A-level results will be outstanding as well! Sorry for the long lecture! :P

    A^ in Further Maths
    A* in Maths (last year), Triple Science, French and Textiles
    A in Eng Lang, Lit, History and Stats.

    With Stats there was only 2 of us and our school marked our coursework as a* but got it back as c. Blame it on school.

    Oh yeah I was second highest in school but unlike some at school I didn't have a private tutor. And our school is loke one of the biggest in the country.

    Wanted to study medicine at Oxford but can't anymore. Aiming for Cambridge now.

    Maths: Predicted A / My expectations A / Achieved A*
    Further Maths: Predicted B / My expectations C / Achieved A
    Biology: Predicted A* / My expectations A / Achieved A (2 marks off an A*)
    Chemistry: Predicted A* / My expectations A / Achieved A
    Physics: Predicted A* / My expectations A / Achieved A (1 mark off an A*)
    English Language: Predicted A* / My expectations A* / Achieved A*
    English Literature: Predicted A* / My expectations A* / Achieved A
    Geography: Predicted A* / My expectations A / Achieved A*
    French: Predicted B / My expectations C / Achieved B
    Civil Engineering Level 2 BTEC Extended Certificate: Predicted D*D* / My expectations D*D* / Achieved D*D* (equivalent of 2 A* GCSEs)

    My comments:
    Very very very pleased with these results and am so happy that I exceeded my expectations in a few subjects. Still kicking myself a little bit over losing a few easy marks in the science exams that could have pushed me up to an A*, but I'm not too bothered really - an A is still an amazing result. However, I have certainly found that the rumour that if you do well in your mocks, you're going to do worse in your actual GCSEs could be true, as I got all A*s I my mocks in most of my subjects. Still really pleased though.

    My Next Steps:
    Study maths, physics, chemistry and level 3 civil engineering at sixth form, and hopefully get the grades I need at A-Level (AAA) to get into my dream university course - Civil and Railway Engineering MEng at Birmingham University.

    Think it was 270, at least it was for French so i'd assume it'd be the same. Check the UMS grade boundaries
    Thankyou

    4A*s, 1A, 3Bs and a C. I'm so, so pleased & relieved that the wait is over. Bit gutted about French as I got full UMS in Unit 2, and both courseworks were marked down. However, my A* in history is all I wanted so I'm beyond ecstatic!!

    So AAAAABBBBC total. I really want to remark psychology because I was 3 marks off an A, does anyone think I would have a good chance of my grade moving up if I did this? Disappointed in my Chemistry grade because I thought I would be better at Chemistry than physics, but my C3 mark put my grade down bad.

    Your predicted grades are only a guideline as to what your teachers think you can achieve. They are often based on your Year 6 SAT results, and sometimes how you perform in class. Only you truly know how well you can do and how much effort you are prepared to put in to get your final grades. So I would say forget about the target grades and do what you think you can manage - push yourself, but not so much that it causes stress and disappointment. If you aim above your target grades and exceed them - great. If not - at least you will have a 'safety net' to fall back on as you should get what you were originally predicted, so no-one will criticise you.

    Hope this helps

    Towards the start and end of year 9 I was predicted all Bs and a few As and like one C, however they were based of SATs grades. If you work really hard from offset, have a good exam technique and know past papers and content inside out there's no reason you can't get an A or A*

    I'm doing Music, Economics, Politics and Eng Lit at A Level, not obvious choices based on my results, but definitely the ones I will enjoy most, even though I got A* all three sciences it's only because I revised loads, I hate the subjects and would not be able to cope at A Level.

    So overall i did pretty good: 1 A*, 2 A's, 3 B's and 3 C's
    Bit annoyed with R.E as it was only a couple of marks off the next boundary.
    But I'm into sixth form

    Future ambitions
    Study Theatre Studies, Media Studies and English Literature at A- level at sixth form.
