    Eeeeek really nervous now!!!! My family aren't exactly helping. My sister (2 years older) was obviously going to get all A's and A*'s (she got 15 A*s) and was really nervous prior to results. My family was all supportive and really nice to her. I have genuine worry I have failed some subjects, and they're just 'oh get over it' 'you're not making the right choice for next year anyway so what does it matter.' And generally belittling me! It's driving me crazy!!

    Wait I did the 0522 CIE english language exam and so does that mean I can see my grade now? I haven't been given a log in so does that mean it's going to be in my results sheet on Thursday?

    There is a chance you could see it now if your school has put it on your school site anywhere, because it's an iGCSE and iGCSE results came out about a week ago. But yes it will be on your results sheet on Thursday, English schools aren't really giving the iGCSE grades until GCSE results day (which is why I went off and found mine, they didn't give me it) so don't worry!

    It is a new spec for some subjects so they can't really release any papers- try the specimen papers, they give a rough idea of what it is like... Quite hard for some subjects like edexcel biology D:

    Is this for maths?
    (Original post by shohaib712)
    Lol good for you. The first few modules are very easy so there shouldnt be a problem with the transition from GCSE to Alevels (well for me that is). But I noticed that the vocabulary in the textbooks can be a bit difficult (if you dont read much - like me).

    That's really rude of them. You know everyone on here will support you. My family belittled me over my choices a little but my head of year was the worst, telling me I was throwing my life away because I didn't want to be a doctor. I know how you feel, try to ignore them and remember everyone here cares.

    I have seen the paper for B1.
    I can see the grade boundaries being much lower I agree.
    However exam boards do have standards to meet so I don't think they would go so far below 40.

    Also, if the line that they draw of the marks don't match what they need, they can increase other people's marks so it reaches the type of line they are looking for.
    Yeah I think 40 is a bit high but I don't do statistics for an exam board.

    Hope that helps.
    I meant I would have put it higher 😂 At least 47 or something like that. But it doesn't really matter! I'm quite excited (and nervous) to see wgat the actual obes are in two days.

    Good luck

    Hey! Are u doing chem, geography and maths for a levels? If so, what career/course would u likely get into.. bc I'm doing similar subjects and have no clue what I wanna donin university. ThAnks!! And good luck (:

    Hey, I'm doing Chemistry, Geography & Biology
    But I'm going into the biosciences (more specifically, Nutrition/Dietetics), for which bio & chem are essential. Geography is a very facilitating subject, though. It certainly makes it easier to get into Humanitarian aid. You could go into physical areas such as cartography, coastal protection, natural hazards management/ monitoring, climatic/environment sciences and lots more. Or human areas such as demographics, population and governance. You can go into Chemistry for laboratory work, or mathematics for computing, business, finance, accounting, or physics. The world is your oyster!

    Oh you meant higher LOL
    I can't read sometimes.

    No i don't think it'll be high.
    The media coverage also pressurises exam boards to lower the grade boundaries.
    Remember hannah and the sweets
