    After my exams, I knew I got an A* in Maths and Chemistry but I was unsure whether I got even an A in biology because Edexcel Biology 2016 exams were really hard and I am very pessimistic. But ended up with 3A*s and am going to UCL to study medicine!

    And why are you going for a remark? What's the point? You got into your firm.. Waste of money IMO. And no, I'm not jealous, I got 578 in AQA Chem

    Hey, pretty sure I've seen you on some other threads!

    Apparently, I was borderline at the interview so they beefed up the offer a little, but glad to have made it either way

    Nice. What exam boards did you do exactly?

    Also do you have any tips for each of these subjects? I'm retaking next year and want to do just as well, please be specific, thanks.
