    Are you AS or A2? A2
    What subjects are you taking? Maths, Biology and Chemistry.
    To which university are you hoping to go? Cambridge
    To study which subject? Medicine
    If applicable, what were your AS grades? 4 As
    What grades are required for your desired degree? A*A*A
    What grades are you predicted? A*A*A*
    How did your exams go? C3 was alright, C4 was very good, not sure if it will average to over 90 UMS for the A* >,< Biology was suspiciously easy so I feel it may not have actually gone that well. Maybe I didn't think about the questions hard enough.. Chemistry was really good!
    How are you feeling about results day? Scared that I'm feeling optimistic since I don't want to be disappointed.

    My worst experience with sleeping pills (prescription, mind you) were when the effects didn't wear off for my exam the next morning. Doing that exam groggy was terrible.
    Yeah - proper sleeping pills are risky - even Nytol and similar off the shelf stuff isn't great IME.

    If I know I have a big day (and I'm getting antsy about it - usually when I'm travelling somewhere and know I have to get up super early and be on my A game) I'll take a piriton, turn off the wifi and the telly, go to bed and put a book on tape on at 6/7pm....I'd much rather be asleep early and up early than risk feeling drowzy the next day.

    For one off events (or to help kick you back into a sensible sleep routine) then some help isn't going to do any harm whatsoever.
    Yes, but that's all it takes. :iiam:

    FOR YOU TO VISIT THEM ONCE.

    Then you can never return home. :ms:

    Wow it's creeping closer and closer. A2 Maths students, do you think you did well in the other maths modules (AQA) to compensate for the atrocious C3 exam that your were given ?

    I'm pretty sure things only update on track at 8:00am on the 18th.

    however, i know a girl who got an email the other day from ucas saying that her offer was changed to unconditional.
    Hahaha oh well she's lucky damn

    Do you mean people who have been accepted when they've missed their offer conditions?

    If so there are tens of thousands of applicants who are accepted with missed grades every year. It's more than likely people missing a grade or two will be accepted but there are no guarantees.

    If a university believes that an applicant either wont be able to cope on the course with those grades or they simply can't fit them in logistically (timetabling, accommodation, teaching staff limitations) then students that have missed their grades are likely to be rejected.

    Last year I got 95% in c1 and c2 and 100% in d1 (UMS). I think c4 and m1 have went just as well (95-100% UMS range) but I think I've done bad enough in c3 to not get an A* 😩 I will be surprised if I can get 80% in c3 and even then I'd need 100% in c4.

    The worst part is that most of my errors were silly and I should've done better, but hey ho I only need an A for uni

    how many marks do you think you got in C3? i'm in such a similar position: got 94% in AS maths and in C3 i think i got 51/75 which will be a mid B if i'm lucky, so an A* is out the window regardless of how well C4 goes

    I know f214 was a joke, but f215 was quite nice so hopefully that brings my grade up lol unless grade boundaries are high :/

    Oh god I messed up the last two D1 questions completely!! I just need a B in that paper though so hopefully it's fine

    That sucks :/ From looking at unofficial mark schemes I think I've got around 50-55 so I don't think an A* is possible unless the grade boundaries are insanely low ahaha

    I feel lucky that i am an AS student. It's sad to know that any other year you could have achieved an A* in Maths (If you get an A on results day) . On the bright side you insinuated that an A is enough to secure a place on your course at uni. 👏👏 Coming to think of it, what is your firm and insurance choice and what course do you want to study?
